It looks like it could be bad news for Mindhunter fans, as the cinematographer has revealed he doesn't know what's going on with the third season. That's not very reassuring is it?

Erik Messerschmidt seems as keen as any of us for the eagerly anticipated third season of the Netflix hit, but has said there's nothing in the pipeline at the moment.

Last year, we heard that the third season was put on the back burner while series creator David Fincher could concentrate on Mank - the flick he's making for Netflix.


Now Messerschmidt has revealed that he doesn't know much more about the situation than the rest of us.

During an interview with Collider he was asked if he had any updates, to which he replied: "I don't. I don't. We just finished this movie [Mank] and I've heard things are on hold for a little bit. We'll see. Who knows?

"But it would be an honor to go back. I love working with David and adore the cast and the crew, and it's been an incredible period of my life for certain. I've been really blessed to have the opportunity to work on it and contribute to it. It's been particularly important and poignant in my career. But yeah, I don't know. I don't know what's going on."

Earlier this year, it was reported that the cast had been released from their contracts, with a Netflix spokesperson telling 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."


The last time we saw agent Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) they were on the case of the Atlanta child murders, while getting closer and closer to the serial killer who has been foreshadowed over the past two seasons.

Fans thought we might be getting a glimpse at killer-clown John Wayne Gacy in the third season, but for now, it looks like we'll just have to wait and see, eh?

In the meantime, you can stream the first two seasons of Mindhunter on Netflix right now.
