Mindhunter Season 3 is Not Happening Says David Fincher

Mindhunter, the critically acclaimed detective crime series from Zodiac and Se7en filmmaker David Fincher, will not be moving forward with a third season. The Netflix show originally ran for two seasons but after a few years of silence, it seems like season 3 won’t be happening due to the expensive budget and the lack of a large audience on the streaming service.

Fincher already explained back in 2020 that the team focused on season 2 for Mindhunter and didn’t have any plans laid out for a third season. The filmmaker also admitted that he didn’t know if he was ready to continue the show given the expensive costs of production as well as not attracting enough viewers for Netflix.

Fincher’s full statement on why Mindhunter season 3 will not be moving forward reads:

“I’m very proud of the first two seasons. But it’s a very expensive show and, in the eyes of Netflix, we didn’t attract enough of an audience to justify such an investment [for Season 3]. I don’t blame them, they took risks to get the show off the ground, gave me the means to do Mank the way I wanted to do it, and they allowed me to venture down new paths with The Killer. It’s a blessing to be able to work with people who are capable of boldness. The day our desires are not the same, we have to be honest about parting ways.”

Mindhunter aired its first season in 2017 and starred Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv as FBI agents in the late 1970s who were tasked with interviewing serial killers and profiling them in order to understand their motives and pinpoint the behaviour patterns of future potential killers. The show was nominated for several awards including 2 Primetime Emmys.

Season 2 left on a cliffhanger so it’s sad to hear that there won’t be a continuation of the story. It’s possible for other streaming services and studios to pick up the show (like we’ve seen plenty of times before) but it sounds like Fincher has since moved on from Mindhunter.
