Mindhunter Director Says A Third Season Could Actually Happen

Mindhunter Director Says A Third Season Could Actually Happen

Fans of Netflix's epic serial killer drama Mindhunter could actually one day get their beloved third season.

The streaming service posted a tweet last week that 'something special' was coming from David Fincher and everyone thought it was going to be news about Mindhunter.

Sadly for those fans, the big announcement was that the Mindhunter creator was doing a collection of visual essays about the love of cinema.

Naturally, everyone was upset that they weren't going to get the news they have been waiting for since season two of the epic serial killer show aired in 2019.

But director Asif Kapadia told fans on Twitter that viewers who are desperate for a third instalment of Mindhunter need to let their feelings be heard.

"Audiences around the world need let @netflix know that there is a real interest & demand for Season 3 of @MINDHUNTER_" he wrote. "if you make enough noise, It might actually happen."

That is one of the biggest hints yet that the show isn't completely dead.

The series follows Holden Ford, Bill Tench and Wendy Carr as they try to build a psychological profile on American serial killers.

It's based off real-life events where a crack team of FBI agents came up a theory that murderers could have similar mental tendencies that would allow authorities to catch them before they find another victim.

Fincher was asked about the show during an interview last year and he revealed why a third season wasn't his top priority.

"Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was an expensive show. We talked about 'Finish Mank and then see how you feel', but I honestly don't think we're going to be able to do it for less than I did Season two," he told Vulture.

"And on some level, you have to be realistic about dollars have to equal eyeballs."

He went on to say that making the series was a mammoth task and took a lot of time and effort, saying he would spend around seven months a year making it.

He explained: "Mindhunter was a lot for me. We had done the first season of Mindhunter without a showrunner, with me pinch-hitting on a week-by-week basis. We started getting scripts for the second season, and I ended up looking at what was written and deciding I didn't like any of it. So we tossed it and started over.

"I brought in Courtenay Miles, an AD I'd worked with who wanted to write, and she ended up co-showrunning Mindhunter.

"But it's a 90-hour work week. It absorbs everything in your life. When I got done, I was pretty exhausted, and I said, 'I don't know if I have it in me right now to break season three'."
