Mindhunter is one of the best dark screen nail-biting shows on Netflix. It has appeared many times among the Top 10 on Netflix. We have witnessed 2 seasons of the show so far, but clouds of season 3 can be seen now.
The first 2 seasons were loved by the public and received many applauds and accolades from the fans and critics. Fans are still hovering and going to search box again and again in search of next season, but have received disappointment so far.
Mindhunter: Will there be a Season 3?
Looking at the SuccessFactors, ratings, and views of the first 2 seasons of the show, Netflix popped up. They officially announced the renewal of Season 3 in January. Not much time passed to the announcement, another news came up saying that Netflix is postponing the Season 3 of Mindhunter for an indefinite period of time.
And now that the filming world is struggling with the Pandemic Coronavirus Outbreak, it is pretty clear that we won’t be receiving any updates about Season 3, at least in the first semester of 2020. As soon as there’s any update, we’ll update the segment.
Mindhunter: Base Story
The story of Mindhunter is based on 2 FBI investigators Douglas & Olshaker. They have extensive experience in investigating serial killers and murder with repetitive modus operandi of rape cases. With the experience, they develop new psychological techniques to solve such crimes with better efficiency to provide quick and accurate judgment. Nevertheless, nothing goes perfect in the world, the 2 detectives face a crime who has no motive, but still does many killings regularly, thus, proving to be a nightmare and headache for the investigators.
Reason for Postponement
The initial reason for the indefinite postponement was the tight schedule of the cast and crew members. Due to the non-availability of the cast, director and producer, Netflix postponed and freed the contracts of the members. It is pretty obvious that they can’t hold the cast and crew, as they have to take other projects ahead in their career.
Director David Fincher is currently stuck with 2 projects – movie ‘Mank’ and anime ‘Love-Death and Robots’.
Clearly, he can come back to Mindhunter only after completion of these 2 projects. Therefore, Netflix has released cast members Jonathan Groff, Holt Mccallany & Anna Torv from their contracts.
But, it is pretty sure that whenever there will be a renewal and revival of Season3, the star cast will return. Assume that season will start filming in mid-2021 (as per the busy schedule of director David Fincher). It will take 8-10 months, including the post-production work. Thus, we can expect Season 3 to be arriving somewhere in the mid of 2022.
