Let’s be honest here. If you’re up-to-date with all the Netflix shows, finished all the series, and have no life, you’ve probably watched Mindhunter. Maybe I was a little too harsh with that but honestly, life or no life, you still probably know of this series because of its great production, acting and overall storyline. If you’re one of those living under a rock, then here’s a quick synopsis by ahmetkozan from IMDb:
Mindhunter is based on the 1996 book Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by former special agent John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. For years, Douglas pursued some of the most notorious serial killers and rapists, developing profiling techniques to catch them. The book goes behind the scenes of some of his highest-profile cases, including the man who hunted prostitutes in Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle’s Green River killer. To hone in his profiling methods Douglas interviewed and studied a skew of serial killers. Several book and TV characters have been based in part on him, including Jack Crawford in Thomas Harris’ The Silence of the Lambs, Will Graham on Hannibal and Jason Gideon on Criminal Minds
With just two seasons, it’s been one of the most respected and watched series so far. But let’s also take into account how late season two was premiered. I don’t know about you, but I smell something fishy going on around here. The pattern suggests that its 3rd season won’t come soon, and fans are curious when.
The answer is: David Fincher. The director of the show has been quite confusing lately, making Mindhunter‘s third season’s release just as confusing. It isn’t cancelled, but it’s going on a break. With Frozen‘s Kristoff and Mindhunter‘s own Holden Ford, Mr. Jonathon Groff, and the rest of the cast were just released from their contracts. This is because of Fincher’s ‘probably’ busy schedule.
One of Netflix’s representatives said:
“David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” .
“He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime felt it wasn’t fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own.”
If you’re just like us, fans, then we’re not getting our hopes up for the meantime. 🙁
