Fans of the hit Netflix series Mindhunter are still trying to figure out the future of the show. Should they wait for the third season, or has Netflix announced its cancellation? All of these questions have been answered below. The show’s creator David Fincher has never failed the audience with his work. The two seasons of Mindhunter did pretty well on the streaming site. Then what can we expect for Mindhunter Season 3? To find out, continue reading.
If we get straight to the point, things are not looking so great for the third season! We are still in a gray zone. However, the positive part of all this is that Fincher has not left his fans in the dark. He has spoken up about his views on a potential third season. Due to this, we have quite an idea of what will most likely be the fate of this show.
When will Mindhunter Season 3 be released?
Netflix has not renewed the third season. So, naturally, there is no official release date for Mindhunter Season 3.
Back when the second season came out, the official statement about the future of the show was that it was on an ‘indefinite hiatus. Which, in simple words, means that the show’s future is uncertain. Another official source confirmed that Netflix had revived the cast and team from the contract. However, if the creator and the team feel like they want to explore the show further, they can surely return to it. But nothing is confirmed for the time being.
Fincher spoke about the matter in an interview. He revealed that the show might be an issue financially for the streaming site. He explained this further. It all comes down to the viewership of the show! If The views are great, the streaming site does not shy away from giving the show another run. However, even though Mindhunter’s viewership was good, it was not as good as to continue with it. Because at the end of the day, profit plays an important part!
It is also true that Fincher’s original plan was to continue with the show for at least till 5 seasons. But the viewership that the show was receiving might have been demotivating for him. Other crew members also gave hopeful statements. But for now, you should know that Netflix has still not made any confirmed announcement about the show, which speaks a lot for it!
Well, we know the chances of a Mindhunter Season 3 happening are low. But we have still summed up the information regarding the potential third installment below!
Who is in the cast of Mindhunter Season 3?
Well, as we mentioned before, the cast is not bound to the Mindhunter’s contract anymore. This means that even if the third season happens, there is no guarantee that all of the main leads will return for it, which is quite a bummer!
Netflix never announced the official cast line-up of the third season! So, all that we can do for now is assume. It will be safe to say that a handful of characters would have continued in the third season as well. According to our speculations, you can expect the following to return in the third season of Mindhunter;
- Jonathan Groff
- Holt McCalleny
- Anna Torv
- Bill Tench
- Wendy Carr
- Stacey Roca
- Joe Tuttle
- Michael Cerveris
- Sonny Valicenti
- Albert Jones
- Cameron Britton
Their involvement in the Mindhunter Season 3 depends on their work schedules. One thing that you should mentally prepare yourself for is that the entire cast is not returning!
Moreover, what about David Fincher? Will he return as the creator of the show for a third season? It is safe to say that he’s the main force that makes Mindhunter so special. David Fincher has been quite busy with his other projects. So, once again, we would like to say that it is better not to keep any hopes.
Is there a trailer for the third season of Mindhunter?
No, of course, there is no trailer for the third season of Mindhunter! But if you want to stream the first two seasons, you can do so on Netflix.
Nothing definite can be said about the plot either. But as we noticed in the first two seasons, Fincher always introduced new serial killers. So, if a third season happens, most likely, we will get to see new psychotic killers.
So, that was everything you needed to know about the Mindhunter Season 3. For more such updates, don’t forget to bookmark this page!
