Mindhunter was a series loved by many yet is only an addition to the list of many shows that Netflix has canceled as of late. After the various series being canceled, Netflix is seemingly ready to reduce its viewers rather than increase. Perhaps two seasons were all that it was destined to have. The series was produced by David Fincher.
It saw an audience intrigued by the uniqueness of the series. The question of whether or not the show would be canceled after its third season was raised. However, Fincher confirmed that this will not be the case. Instead, there will be no new content with regard to Mindhunter. This was an even bigger surprise seeing that the setup for the third season had already been done.

Mindhunter To Sit Aside Like Warrior Nun And Inside Job
Mindhunter is not the first series to be canceled by Netflix recently. 1899, Warrior Nun, Inside Job, and many more shows that are heavily loved by the audience have been canceled by the streaming service. While the first season of Mindhunter saw the lead characters of Holden and Bill, played by Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany establish the behavioral unit in the FBI the second season followed the two working on the Atlanta Child Murders that took place from 1979-1981.
“I don’t blame them, they took risks to get the show off the ground, gave me the means to do Mank the way I wanted to do it and they allowed me to venture down new paths with The Killer. It’s a blessing to be able to work with people who are capable of boldness. The day our desires are not the same, we have to be honest about parting ways.”
On one hand, Netflix is renewing shows like Emily in Paris. On the other hand, critically acclaimed shows are being canceled because of a bigger budget and lesser viewers according to the streaming service. David Fincher stated that he understands the decision that has been made and thanked the streaming service for letting the show run according to how he wanted it for so long.
This was further surprise seeing that the budget of the service has been divided to multiple movies and shows that haven’t done so well like Red Notice and Young Royals.

Fans Rage After Mindhunter Becomes Just Another Canceled Series
Fans are enraged by the decision made and have been asking for it to be renewed again or be taken by some other streaming service like Amazon Prime Video. They point out how many series that have been repeatedly thrashed are being renewed for more seasons but, a show like Mindhunter has to sit on the sidelines.

Expensive??? It's a realistic show without any effects. Likely minimal editing needs to be done on it. What's the expense that isn't on every other series? This was a great show and it's being killed because it doesn't have an agenda to push.

The audience is even willing to step away from Netflix altogether. Ever since the password-sharing criteria were established, although now removed, the viewers are already on the edge. So to see so many of their favorite shows not continuing is just another reason for them to pick other streaming services.
Mindhunter is now streaming on Netflix.
