According to small-screen.com Netflix is currently in talks with David Fincher for season three of Mindhunter. Fans of the show will remember how season 2 ended, with room to continue with the story line, however it seemed to be clear that there would be no season three.
In January of 2020 Jonathan Groff, Holt Mc Callany, and Anna Torv were released from their contracts and the show as put on an indefinite hold by Netflix.
David Fincher made a statement that seemed to solidify the fact that the show was not returning. As we reported back in October, during an interview with Vulture, Fincher said: “We lived there for almost three years. Not year in and year out, but … probably six or seven months a year … Mindhunter was a lot for me.” Fincher seemed to do everything himself on Season 2 and continuing with the show was too much for him at the time. “It’s a 90-hour workweek. It absorbs everything in your life. When I got done, I was pretty exhausted, and I said, ‘I don’t know if I have it in me right now to break season three.’”
Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos and Cindy Holland, the company VP for original content, asked Fincher what he would like to do next, and that’s when Mank happened. Fincher said: “Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was a very expensive show. 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.”
Season 3 may be in the works, but only time will tell. Keep it locked to Horror News Network for more updates on Mindhunter.
