What is the future of Mindhunter season 3 ?
Though the director of the series David Fincher had plans for Five seasons of the series, it seems off the table now.
Unfortunately in January 2020, David Fincher announced that Mindhunter has been kept on indefinite hold. The main reason of the hold might be that David has lot of other projects planned in his calendar.
Netflix has not officially confirmed the return of the Mindhunter. The makers of the show has even released the actors of the Mindhunter from their contracts. So it will be hard to tell if Mindhunter is going to be back or not !
There is also possibility of the Mindhunter coming back on Netflix. Right now David Fincher is busy with his other projects of Netflix. He is working in Love , Death & Robots. He is also busy with his new upcoming feature film named Mank.
Once David gets free dates on his schedule he might return to the Mindhunter said the spokesperson of the show.
Also actor McCallany in his interview with The Hollywood reporter informed that Fincher had plans for this series since beginning. It’s no harm to believe that he will want to be back to Mindhunter.
Making of the show being on hold , there is no information about if and when the show will be back. It’s hard to draw an estimate release date, if the Mindhunter ever comes back. Same goes for the plotline and the cast for the show.
