Executive Producer of ‘Mindhunter’ Confirms Series Is Done At Netflix For Now

We finally have a new, albeit sad, update on Netflix’s crime thriller, Mindhunter. The show was put on indefinite hold in January, as the three main stars of the show Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv were released from their contracts. Now, executive producer, David Fincher, confirmed that a third season of the show is off the radar at Netflix, according to a report on Vulture.

“Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was a very expensive show,” Fincher said. “We talked about, ‘Finish Mank and then see how you feel,’ but I honestly don’t think we’re going to be able to do it for less than I did season two. And on some level, you have to be realistic — dollars have to equal eyeballs.”

The series, which premiered on Netflix on October 13, 2017, centers on FBI agents Holden Ford, Bill Tench and psychologist Wendy Carr as they operate the newly formed Behavioral Science Unit for the FBI. The trio work together to learn more about serial killers by conducting interviews with those that are incarcerated. The divisions goal is to solve ongoing cases by using the knowledge they uncover.

Mindhunter was created by Joe Penhall and stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, Cotter Smith, Stacey Roca and Cameron Britton.
