David Fincher has theorized the Netflix psychological thriller series Mindhunter may not return for Season 3. The reason, he explained, is the limited viewership of the critically-acclaimed show in connection with its funding.
Fincher shared with Vulture, “Song, to its viewership it had, it was a really expensive show. We talked about,’ Finish Mank and then see how you are feeling,’ but I frankly don’t believe we are likely to be in a position to do it for less than that I did in season two. And on some level, you need to be realistic dollars have to equivalent eyeballs.”
Created by Joe Penhall, Mindhunter was based on the true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit. The story followed the members of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit whose job was to interview infamous serial killers to find out how they served. This knowledge was meant to be used to fix ongoing scenarios.
Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Hannah Gross, Cotter Smith, Cameron Britton, and others starred in Mindhunter.

Fincher, who produced Mindhunter and also directed several episodes, added, “We lived there for almost 3 decades. Not a year in and year out, but. probably six or seven weeks per year… Mindhunter was a great deal for me personally.”
Netflix is ready to keep the door a tiny crack open. Discussing the next season, a spokesperson added, “Perhaps in five decades.”
