Mindhunter, the series which was made available to stream on the online streaming service providing platform, Netflix, is off the case for the foreseeable future. The executive producer of the show, David Fincher, has revealed more than a year after the second season of the crime-drama series was dropped on the streaming platform that the series is probably done for good.
David Fincher, who is promoting his upcoming film titled Mank, said that for the viewership the show had, it was an expensive show. He added that people talked about, finish Mank and then see how you feel, but he honestly does not think that they are going to be able to do it for less than he did for the second season. Well, we do agree that you have to be realistic about dollars have to equal eyeballs.Image Source – EW
A spokesperson of the streaming giant revealed when asked about whether the series could eventually return for a third season, that may be in five years, the series could return.
Mindhunter: No New Season For The Netflix Series?
The chances of the renewal of the series already seemed slim as of this past month of January, when the stars, Holt McCallany, Jonathan Groff, and Anna Torv, were released free from their contracts, due to the busy schedule of Fincher with Mank and Love, Death & Robots, the Netflix series. He also shared tha the production process of the show took a toll on him, making it even more difficult and unlikely that the show would return.
He revealed that they had done the first season of the show without a showrunner, with him pinch-hitting on a week-by-week basis. Fincher brought in Courtenay Miles, an AD he had worked with who wanted to write, and she ended up co-showrunning the show for the second season.
In addition to this, he said that it is a 90-hour workweek, it absorbed everything in your life; when he got done, he was pretty exhausted, and he said that he does not know if he has it in him right now to break the third season of the show.Image Source – EW
The psychological thriller respectively starred Groff, McCallany, and Torv as two FBI agents and a psychologist who works in the bureau’s Behavioral Science Unit and attempted to get a better understanding of serial killers’ motivations.
