Mindhunter is a unique crime investigation show, where the special officers think like the criminals and solve out the actual crime scenes. This different notion of investigation has been loved by the audience, making them eagerly wait for season three.
Chances of its return :
David Fincher, the director of the show, has been busy with his films Mank and Love, Death and Robots. Even the contracts of the potential actors of the show were released free. This made the fans worry about the future of this show.
Then David Fincher cleared the doubts stating that he felt it was unfair to restrict the actors to only this series while he is working on other projects. He just needs some proper time to make the third season more exciting than the previous seasons.
He is also planning the series to be a five seasoned one. So fans need not worry about the end of the series.
Erik Messerschmidt, the cinematographer for the season two, have said that honestly, he has no idea about the future of the show. As of now, the work for the film Mank is finished. But if there is a next season for Mindhunter, then he would love to work on it as he loves the fantastic work of David Fincher and all the crew of this series.
Plotting out the release date:
Due to the corona pandemic, all the offices and cinema and series projects are halted. So it would take a considerable amount of time for the makers to start the shooting of Mindhunter season 3. If the script is ready, and the schedule of the actors are also free, then the shooting can be started at an earlier in the year 2021. Considering the shooting time the crew made in the past, 8 months is enough for them to shoot and launch a series.
I am so considering all these factors. And if everything happens accordingly, then fans can expect the third instalment of Mindhunter in the year 2022. This is the earliest it could come.
