The third season for Netflix’s crime drama series Mindhunter may be put on hold due to conflict of schedule.
A spokesperson from Netflix told Entertainment Weekly, “David [Fincher] is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death, and Robots.” They also said that Fincher may revisit the series sometime in the future.
Fincher working on his directorial feature for Netflix caused the delay for Mindhunter‘s third instalment. The second season of the show aired August last year and the actors’ contracts have ended as well.
The company wants to be fair to the actors and not rob them of their chance to explore other jobs outside Mindhunter while the show is still on hold.
In the second season of Mindhunter, Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv reprised their roles as members of the FBI Behavioral Science Unit tasked to deal and study the country’s most notorious and infamous serial killers.
Joe Penhall is the brainchild of the show and the second installment focused on Atlanta child murders.
Fans have met some of the most ruthless criminals in the show such as Edmund Kemper, Charles Manson, David Berkowitz, Jerry Brudos and Dennis Rader aka the BTK killer.
The most interesting part of the show, though, is the mysterious guy who is always showing up in the first few seconds of each episode.
Fans need not worry as the cast has expressed their interest to return for the show. Groff said that season 3 will not happen until Fincher has already mapped out the direction of the story.
The show took a year and a half before the sequel arrived and Groff is optimistic that Fincher is doing his best to make sure everything is being attended to. Holt McCallany, who played Bill Tench, is also looking forward to work on more seasons.
