It's bad news for fans of the incredible Netflix series Mindhunter: the cast have officially been released from their contracts.

That doesn't mean that they've been dumped from the show, with hopes of a new look for season three; it just means they're allowed to pursue other other work because the one of the show's executive producers, David Fincher, is busy.

A Netflix spokesperson has told Deadline: "David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots.


"He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime felt it wasn't fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own."

So it looks like the highly anticipated third season of Mindhunter is on hold until further notice.

While there has been no confirmation that we'll even get a third season, the second instalment left us gagging for more of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench.

They were working their way through the Atlanta child murders and we are getting agonisingly close to seeing who the serial killer is that has been foreshadowed over the past two seasons.

But it looks like we'll have to hold our collective breaths until Fincher gets on top of his other projects.
