What makes serial killers tick? What’s their excuse for the maniac act? Of course, you can’t dare to ask a serial killer. In that case, you can relax for now and binge on Mindhunter season 1 and season 2 available on Netflix. FBI’S Holden Ford and the team have done the job for you. David Fisher directed psychological crime thriller, Mindhunter is the magnum opus in the already crowded genre on Netflix. The series brilliantly and immaculately delves into the minds of most notorious serial killers.
- Mindhunter season 3 revived?
- Netflix’s opinion on Mindhunter.
- Release date of Season 3
Those who have watched season 1 and season 2 are eagerly waiting for Mindhunter season 3. But what’s with the news that Mindhunter season 3 is canceled? Let’s cheer you up because you have every reason to. Mindhunter season 3 is not canceled and the news is coming from the horse’s mouth- Netflix.
It is not all gloomy and doomy for Mindhunter fans
Why the rumors? Well, Mindhunter season 3 hasn’t revived yet. Director of the intriguing psychological drama, David fisher is busy with other projects. He has relieved the main cast from their contracts so that they can follow other pursuits. His new animated feature film, Love, Death, and Robots is lined up in production. Mank, another film of Fisher will release by 2021.
Don’t bang your head in disappointment. Netflix spokesperson recently said: There might be another installment in the series. It won’t be happening shortly but the show is not canceled. Netflix’s recent statement via its spokesperson makes us hope for another season of Mindhunter, season 3.
Straight from horse’s (Netflix’s) mouth
A spokesperson for Netflix told Entertainment Weekly: “He [Fincher] mays 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 David Fisher will be back with another season once he finishes his upcoming projects. It would have been unfair for the cast to keep them waiting. So they were relieved from their contracts. It will take some time for Mindhunter season 3 to see the light of the day but is not canceled as yet. We hope that Fisher lays his eyes on Mindhunter season 3 sooner.
It was earlier said that Mindhunter is mapped for 5 seasons. For now, the project is kept on the backburner. But since Netflix has not canceled the series, we can expect another season in the Mindhunter segment. For now, it is a pipe dream but the future of Mindhunter is not entirely grim.
Serious mind hunting on Mindhunter season 3 release date
Nothing is on the cards, as yet and only after Fisher finishes his upcoming projects, anything can be claimed. But we can definitely make a calculated guess on the release date for season 3. Mank (Fisher upcoming film) will release by early 2021. It took 8 months to film previous seasons of Mindhunter, so season 3 can be expected to premiere in late 2021, at the earliest. We can get to watch the FBI serial crime unit exploring more minds only by the end of 2021 or in early 2022.
If all augers well, Mindhunter season 3 will premiere by late 2021 to early 2022.
We can’t make a definite statement on the future or release date of Mindhunter season 3. The series has saved itself from following the same algorithmic pattern of the crime thriller genre. Since its inception, it has managed to get rave reviews from fans and critics.
We hope, David Fisher is listening and in true Mindhunter’s fashion, we leave you unsettled with moments of doubt, but a ray of hope. All serial killers out there, mend your minds before season 3 comes mind-hunting.
