Mindhunter director David Fincher has confirmed the show’s future on Netflix.

The show is produced by Charlize Theron and David Fincher, who is known for his work on crime films such as Seven, Zodiac, and Gone Girl.

It follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Trench (Holt McCallany) as they learn about the Behavioral Science Unit in the late 1970s and try to figure out how serial killers think.

Mindhunter has a near-perfect 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and fans have been waiting for a third season eagerly.

And now we have an update on this popular Netflix show.

Watch the Mindhunter trailer below.

Mindhunter‘s second season ended in 2019, and there has been speculation about what might happen in season three as well as which real-life serial killers might be explored.

In its first two seasons, the show featured infamous criminals such as Charles Manson, Ed Kemper, and Wayne Williams.

Fans have been requesting more information about Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, especially with the rise in interest in true crime series as a result of its success.

However, it appears that they will be disappointed, as Fincher has downplayed the possibility of a third season.

In an interview with the French newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, he explains:

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 three].

However, the Fight Club director thanked Netflix for giving him the opportunity to create the show and for continuing to collaborate with him on other projects.

He continues:

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 [his next feature].

It’s a blessing to be able to work with people who are capable of boldness.


Despite the news, Mindhunter fans are still advocating for a third season, even if it is not available on Netflix.

One fan suggests:

Apple TV you know what to do.

A second viewer says:

Absolutely brilliant show, just can’t get my head around why there’s not another series or more.


Netflix broke as hell man, sell the rights to HBO and get on with it,

adds another fan.

Someone else comments:

If Netflix was a real one they would’ve let everyone know Mindhunter was cancelled so at least someone like HBO could buy and revive it but no.

They cancelled it so they could hold on to it for nothing.

A fifth viewer writes:

Sooo… do we crowdfund? Can someone find out how much they need for a third season?
