Mindhunter is surely one of the best crime thriller web TV series streaming on Netflix. The web series is based on the true crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
The first and second season of Mindhunter premiered on Netflix in October 13, 2017 and in August 2019 respectively. Considering the popularity, Netflix renewed Mindhunter for the third season 3 as well but it has been put on indefinite hold.
Here’s everything you need to know about Mindhunter season 3.
Mindhunter season 3 release date: Will there be another season of Mindhunter?
The first and second season of Mindhunter received an overwhelming response from the audience and critiecs. Ever since the second season ended, fans have been wondering whether Netflix will come up with the third season of Mindhunter or not.
Earlier January 2020, Netflix has announced the series was on indefinite hold. A delegate for Netflix told TVLine, “[Fincher] may return to Mindhunter later on, yet meanwhile felt it wasn’t reasonable for the on-screen characters to hold them from looking for other work while he was investigating new work of his own.”
“David [Fincher] is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a rep was quoted as saying to Digital Spy.
“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.”
Holt McCallany, who plays Special Agent Bill Tench, had previously told Pop Culture that he is not only hopeful of a third season, but two more on top of that.
“I don’t think anybody knows right now, in August of 2019, exactly what lies in store for Holden and Bill, and Wendy,” he said.
“We are hopeful that we will get to do the whole five seasons because the audience seems to have really responded to the show, people really like the show. And we’re very proud of the show, and very excited to keep making the show.”
Mindhunter season 3 cast: Who will star in the next season?
It is too early to talk about cast of Mindhunter season 3 as Netflix has not renewed the series as of yet. However, if it gets renewed for the third season, Jonathan Groff, Holt McCalleny, and Anna Torv as Holdon Ford, Bill Tench, and Wendy Carr will be seen reprising their roles.
For the unversed, three lead characters Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv have been discharged from their agreements.
Beside these, Stacey Roca as Bill’s better half Nancy, Joe Tuttle as Special Agent Greg Smith, Michael Cerveris as Ted Gunn, and Sonny Valicenti as Dennis Rader (the “BTK executioner”) will also be seen in the third season.
