It’s been three years since Anna Torv abandoned our television sets following the completion of Fringe. The series always had its ups and downs, but the cast was always excellent. Since Fringe departed into an alternate universe (where it’s in its 7th season and Leonard Nimoy is still alive and being called forth again with soul magnets), we’ve seen plenty of John Noble on Elementary and Sleepy Hollow and Joshua Jackson was quick to land a new series in The Affair.
Anna Torv, however, hasn’t blessed us with her television presence since 2013. That’s because we’re Americans, we have a clown leading one of our two political parties, and she’s too good for American television. She has, however, made an appearance on Australian television in the miniseries, Deadline Gallipoli, with fellow Aussie Sam Worthington, and she’s wrapped shooting on a second, six-episode Australian series, Secret City, about a “senior political journalist who uncovers a secret city of interlocked conspiracies, putting innocent lives in danger including her own.”
Today, however, we have learned that Torv will be soon be in a series we can watch in America. Most of us will be begging to, in fact, because it comes from David Fincher, and it’s based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John Douglas and Mark Olshanker.
That’s all we know about the series, other than it will also star Jonathan Groff, who THR refers to as the star of Looking, because they’ve apparently never heard of a little musical called Hamilton.
