Is Mindhunter Season 3 Cancelled? What Did David Fincher Say about the Season?

Netflix has put on a lot of great shows and one of the ones that we have absolutely adored is the Netflix series created by David Fincher “Mind Hunter” which is an incredible show. It had two seasons and everybody is waiting for season 3. However, it is sad for the fans that there will be no other season aired on Netflix. For more detailed information just keep on reading the article till the end.

David Fincher confirmed that Mindhunter season 3 will not be going to happen as it costs too much. According to David Fincher, executive producer and director of the show Mindhunter, the fan favorite was too expensive for Netflix to move forward with a third season. “I’m very proud of the first two seasons,” he told Le Journal du dimanche, per Forbes. “But it’s a very expensive show, and in the eyes of Netflix, we didn’t attract enough of an audience to justify such an investment” for season three.

Fincher said. “I don't blame them, they took risks to get the show off the ground, gave me the means to do Mank the way I wanted to do it and they allowed me to venture down new paths with The Killer. It's a blessing to be able to work with people who are capable of boldness. The day our desires are not the same, we have to be honest about parting ways.”

The first season of Mindhunter is portrayed by characters Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as they attempted to set up a behavioral unit for the FBI. The second season showed the pair investigating the infamous Atlanta child murders of 1979-81, all the while teasing the appearance of Dennis Rader, aka The BTK Killer.

Rader's crimes would have been the main focus of the third season. In a recent interview with French magazine Le Journal du Dimanche, Fincher again spoke on the decision to cancel Mindhunter, confirming that a third season will never happen, as well as insinuating that Netflix made the final decision to end the series.

Fincher's lack of resentment isn't surprising, given his longstanding relationship with Netflix. Before Mindhunter, he worked with the streaming giant as an executive producer and director for House of Cards, winning a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for the pilot. His latest project with Netflix is The Killer, based on a French graphic novel and starring Michael Fassbender in the titular role. Since signing a four-year exclusive deal with the streamer in 2020, Fincher has gone on to direct Mank, a black-and-white film telling the story of the development of Citizen Kane.
