The Third Season of “Mindhunter” is Delayed

Bad news Mindhunter fans, season three is barely in the works.

The second season of the Netflix show may have arrived over the summer, but fans may have to wait a while for season three. With a new unconfirmed character introduced to the mix, this is disappointing news for fans.

The reason for the delay is that Mindhunter director David Fincher is currently directing a film. Titled “Mank”, the feature was written by Fincher’s late father. As a result, work on Mindhunter will not commence until Mank is finished.

Mindhunter star Jonathan Groff told The Hollywood Reporter that work on the third season of the show has been put on hold. The platform reported that “talk of a third season of Mindhunter is on hold while Fincher focuses on his next feature.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Groff confessed that the success of Mindhunter initially left him feeling down. He said: “Whenever something really great happens, it makes me feel a little bit depressed. It’s like, this is never going to get better than this moment right now. I’m sitting in David Fincher’s office and he’s giving me this role.”

Mindhunter Season Two is available on Netflix now.
