The third season of Mindhunter is on roll, Netflix is officially in negotiations with David Fincher. Fans of the show will recall how the 2nd season finished with space for the plot, but the three seasons did not seem obvious.
Jonathan Groff, Holt Mc Callany, and Anna Torv were freed from their contracts in January 2020 and the show was endlessly kept by Netflix.
David Fincher said that the show did not return seemed to solidify the reality. In an interview with Vulture, Fincher said, “We lived almost three years there, as we said in October. Not all year, perhaps six to seven months a year… It’s been a lot to Mindhunter.” Fincher managed to do all himself in season 2 and it was too much for him to continue with the show at the time. “This is a workweek for 90 hours. It consumes all of your life. I was pretty weary when I was finished, and I said, ‘I do not know if I have to crack the third season in myself right now.'”
The news is very shocking when the show seems to have all been said and done. The cast was announced in January of last year, with lead stars including Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv, and so it’s difficult to tell whether it will be returning in the new season, or whether it will have been newly cast.
Ted Sarandos, CEO of Netflix, and Cindy Holland, the original content vice president of Fincher, asked him what to do next and then Mank. Fincher said, “Listen, it was a very costly performance for the audience. We’ve spoken, “Finish Mank and see how you do,” but frankly I don’t believe we’ll be able to do it for less than two seasons. And you must be rational on certain levels — dollars must match balls of the eye.”
