Mindhunter is undoubtedly the most highly-rated shows on Netflix. It must surely be a one as it has a fantastic Oscar-nominated director David Fincher and Oscar Award winner Actress. Thought after two seasons being a very grand hit fans are doubting a lot about the release of season 3.
Reason for the Delay and contracts being signed off :
With the immense success of two seasons, the director David Fincher would take on season 3 in cards. But at present, he is in a lot of projects. He is currently working on his movie Mank which is a biographical film about Herman J. Mankiewicz. He is also producing the second season of Love, Death And Robots. This leaves David Fincher a very little time to think of the Mindhunter season 3. As he wants this season to be more intruding, he first needs to finish all of his unfinished projects and think of only this thoroughly. This brings in great light for season 3 though it might take some time.
A spokesperson has spoken about the reason behind the contracts of the actors being signed off. The simple reason behind this was as the director is busy with other movies; it is unfair to hold the actors for this series. In this time gap even they can progress with other projects helping their careers develop. So the release of contracts of Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv on January 15 was just to provide them with space for other projects. So fans need not at all fear of Mindhunter’s end.
Actor Holt McCallany takes on this :
Holt McCallany who plays the role of Bill Trench in the series has said out in an interview that David Fincher is planning a lot bigger this time. He is just busy with other projects and wants to give himself some space to make the next season of Mindhunter a grand hit. He further said that David Fincher was quite sure from it’s season 1 that he is planning to make it for five seasons. So this opens the gate till five seasons for sure as of now.
