Netflix thriller season 3 Mindhunter is on hold due to director and actor problems. Based on the books of FBI real life profiler John Douglas, Mindhunter He debuted on Netflix in 2017 and immediately received praise for his meticulous narration and disturbing tone.
Focused on the activities of the FBI fictional agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and his team, season 1 presented convincingly compelling portraits of famous assassins like Ed Kemper and Richard Speck, while mocking a future BTK story Killer Dennis Rader. Mindhunter it was in fact a second Netflix triumph for executive producer David Fincher, following in the footsteps of his series that changed the game House of cards. With Fincher still at the helm as EP and director of occasional episodes, the show returned in 2019 for a second season with depictions of the famous psychopaths Charles Manson, David Berkowitz and the Atlanta killer Child Murders Wayne Williams.

Unfortunately for the devoted fans of the show, it seems to be waiting for Mindhunter Season 3 will be long, if it arrives. As reported by Ew, the third season is on hold since Fincher is doing other work and the cast members' contracts have expired, freeing them up so they can also look for other opportunities. As a Fincher spokesperson explained:
“David is focused on directing his first Netflix movie, Mank, and producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots. He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime he felt it was not fair for the actors to prevent them from looking for another job while he was exploring his own work. "
In fact, Fincher's next project is the period drama Mank, which tells the story of Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz and director Orson Welles during the difficult development of that classic film. Fincher is also very involved in a second season of Love, death and robots, the animated science fiction anthology series that debuted on Netflix in 2019. As for Mindhunter lead actor Groff is ready to join the cast of Matrix 4, a production that can take a long time, while its co-star Holt McCallany has signed for the remake noir of Guillermo del Toro Nightmare alley.
Again, it's unfortunate news for Mindhunter Fans should know that Fincher seems to be moving away from the program to focus on other projects, which allows its main cast members to also continue with other jobs. In fact, the wording of the spokesman's statement is somewhat ominous, since it only says that Fincher "can revisit" Mindhunter in the future. If the Netflix program comes to an end after only two seasons, it will feel like a missed opportunity, especially given the way Fincher and the company organized the BTK Killer investigation without any payment so far. Fans will only have to cross their fingers so that Fincher and his cast will finally clear their boards and return to the convincing world they helped create with those two seasons of Mindhunter.
