Fans of Mindhunter still believe that Netflix will bring back the show with Season 3. They are waiting for the greenlight. Do you think there is any possibility of Mindhunter Season 3? The decision is still hanging in a balance.
Mindhunter, Netflix's one of the most interesting shows directed by an iconic Hollywood director Joe Penhall, is based on the 1995 true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker wrote the story.
However, the series enthusiasts are quite disappointed after hearing that the streaming giant has stopped the production of Mindhunter Season 3. Although in 2020, the drama choreographer, Erik Messerschmidt admitted that the series might get into production after wrapping on David Fincher's first Netflix film, Mank.
In a recent discussion with Vulture, the executive producer David 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."
According to some media outlets, Mindhunter Season 3 has been canceled. But it has not been officially canceled by Netflix yet. Besides, David Fincher's Mank already landed on Netflix a few months back. So, everything is relying on David Fincher whether he will come back with Mindhunter Season 3 or not. There's a lot more story to say in third season.
However, the producer talked to Variety and said, "I certainly needed some time away, we had all hands on deck to finish [Mindhunter Season 2] and we didn't have a ton of scripts and a ton of outlines and a bible standing by for season three. I'll admit I was a little bit like 'I don't know that I'm ready to spend another two years in the crawl space.'"
In the same conversation, Fincher also said he loves to revisit with Mindhunter Season 3. "At some point, I'd love to revisit it. The hope was to get all the way up to the late '90s, early 2000s, hopefully, get all the way up to people knocking on the door at Dennis Rader's house," said the producer.
We think Netflix will renew Mindhunter for Season 3, but it will take some time, as the series is "an expensive show," as stated by Fincher. Stay tuned to Devdiscourse for more updates on Netflix shows.
