Mindhunter is an American thriller series since 2017. The show has got two seasons until now, and we hope that the third season has also been renewed. The show has been well received by the viewers as well as the critics. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it has scored 97 per cent fresh.
Is The Third Season Renewed?
The third season of Mindhunter has not been renewed yet, and the series has been put on hold. It seems that the director David Fincher is working on other projects. David has prioritised finishing his new feature film, Mank. As well as his producing duties on the animated series Love, Death and Robots. He chose to step away from Mindhunter for now.
Other than that the main cast has been released from their contracts. This is allowing them to seek new work. This suggests that Mindhunter will not be gearing up for another season soon.
This does not mean that the fans should lose all their hopes as there is a chance that the series could make a return at some point.
Mindhunter: When Will The Third Season Begin Filming?
If the series were to return, the filming probably would not start until after the release of David’s new feature film. So most likely, 2021 will be at the earliest.
The second season of the show took eight months to film, so if the third season were to span a similar time frame, then 2022 would be the earliest.
The Cast For The Third Season.
The lead actors- Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford, Holt McCallany as Bill Tench and Anna Torv as Wendy Carr have been released from their contracts while Fincher works on other projects.
If he was to return to the show in the future, it is possible that he could still reunite his core cast members, but he would be required to work around their schedule.
