Netflix and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director David Fincher’s stellar serial killer series Mindhunter is all set to bring us a third season sometime in the future.
And today we’re hearing from THR that that time might be a bit further into the future than we had hoped.
Evidently, the new season is on hold as Fincher will begin shooting his new Netflix biography movie Mank starring Gary Oldman and Amanda Seyfried in November.
He will then begin working on the new season of Mindhunter.
Mindhunter shows us that catching a criminal often requires the authorities to get inside the villain’s mind to figure out how he thinks. That’s the job of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench. They attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. Along the way, the agents pioneer the development of modern serial-killer profiling.
Serial killers the show has sported thus far include Cameron Britton as Ed Kemper, Happy Anderson as Jerry Brudos, Sonny Valicenti as Dennis Rader, Sam Strike as Montie Rissell, Jack Erdie as Richard Speck, Oliver Cooper as David Berkowitz, Robert Aramayo as Elmer Wayne Henley, Jr., Michael Filipowich as William “Junior” Pierce, Corey Allen as William Henry Hance, Morgan Kelly as Paul Bateson, with Christopher Backus as Tex Watson, and Damon Herriman as Charles Manson.
The crime drama has a strong pedigree behind the camera, with Oscar-nominated director David Fincher and Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron among the show’s executive producers.
