Small Screen reports that sources close to Netflix say the streamer and David Fincher come in talks for a third season after hopes have been dashed back in January 2020, when the series’ leads Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, along with Anna Torv were released from their contracts. Netflix put the series on indefinite hold, too.
However, a lot has changed since then, such as series creator Fincher signing an exclusive four-year growth deal with Netflix. His span drama Mank, released by Netflix, received favorable reviews from critics and was nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. All the more reason for both Netflix and Fincher to be interested in bringing the director back to his emotional thriller.
The sole job Fincher is currently tied to is The Killer, which is being brought to Netflix following the director spent years trying to get it generated somewhere else.
In the case of Mindhunter, it’s considered as one of Netflix’s best original displays, despite Fincher admitting that the series didn’t generate enough viewing quantities large enough to warrant the investment required to continue diving into the world of serial killers. Together with Fincher’s development deal with Netflix, it seems sensible that Mindhunter would be brought up during discussions and, at this point, the door isn’t completely closed on the series.
