Mindhunter Star Holt McCallany Says The Show Will Run For Five Seasons
Well, although we don't have an official announcement, actor Holt McCallany - who plays Agent Bill Tench - has revealed that he and executive producer David Fincher are hopeful it will for 'five seasons'. Woohoo.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter as the latest season lands, McCallany said: "He [Fincher] said 'Listen, are you ready to do this for five seasons? Because even if I f*** it up, it's gonna go five seasons, and I don't intend to f*** it up'.
"So I'd like to think that we will continue, for as long as David is intrigued by telling this particular story."
Well that all sounds pretty bloody exciting, doesn't it?
Opening up about his off-camera friendship Jonathan Groff (who plays Agent Holden Ford) McCallany praised his co-star, adding: "Even though we've worked so closely for two years now, truthfully never a cross word has transpired between us, and I think we could do five seasons and it would be the same thing."

Well, that's good to know, because this is an on-screen partnership we don't want to see ending any time soon.
McCallany also said that the third season could be a 'complete re-imagining of the show' and that it might be filmed outside of Pittsburgh, where the first two seasons were shot.
Although it's yet to be officially renewed, McCallany has his own hopes for upcoming seasons, adding: "My hope going forward is that we'll just continue to meet some of these really well-known criminals, where you start to talk about the John Wayne Gacys, the Ted Bundys, the Jeffrey Dahmers.
"I'm not certain what David has in mind, but the heart and soul of the show seems to be these two guys going to prisons and conducting these interviews together and trying to understand, why the hell would a person do this?"
If you've not seen season two yet, it centres on the Atlanta child murders, which saw 28 kids killed between 1979 and 1981.
It also features glimpses of Dennis Rader, also known as the BTK Killer, Ed Kemper and Charles Manson.
The first two season of Mindhunter are available to stream on Netflix right now.
