Hopes for Mindhunter season 3 may not be completely over just yet – with new reports claiming creator David Fincher may still be up for a return.
The detective series, based on the real life investigations into serial killers and their psyches, was a smash hit success for Netflix, but it seemed to be dead in the water in 2019, when Fincher admitted the show had taken its toll on him.
In January 2020, it seemed the show’s fate was sealed with the cast – led by Jonathan Groff and Cameron Britton and Holt McCallany, had been released from their contracts.
But fast forward 18 months, a pandemic and the success of Oscar-darling Mank, it’s rumoured that he may have had a change of heart, and he’s back ‘in talks’ with Netflix for another round.
‘All I can really tell you about Mindhunter is that conversations between Netflix and Fincher are ongoing,’ a source told Small Screen.
‘They are discussing the possibility of bringing the show back for a third season.

‘It’s still very early days, but Fincher sounds more upbeat about the project.’
Fincher has been working closely with Netflix over the past few years, with Mank being released on the streaming service as well as his produced series, Love Death and Robots.
Mank has been nominated for 10 awards at the 2021 Oscars, including Best Picture, facing off against The Father, Judas and The Black Messiah, Minari and Nomadland.
