The season 2 of the show was released in August last summer of 2019 and according to the sources back that it was set in “on indefinite hold at Netflix“. However, this does not mean that the show as been cancelled but has been put on hold till the production company says otherwise.
Mindhunter last came to our screens in last August, it has almost been a year since the FBI’s Behavioural Science unit last solved crimes and changed the way the American police works. The show has not been very keen on the news of the revival of the show, and the known news has not brought anything good in the light of the show’s life.
The reason behind the news is that during the start of the year, all of the main cast were released off of their contracts and were giving the allowance to seek other work, suggesting that season three might never take place because executive producer David Fincher has his hands tied with a handful of other projects, Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, and Anna Torv “have been released from their contracts.”
The reason for a possible indefinite hold
“David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a Netflix representative told TVLine. “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.”
Following a half year, the world has been given an update about the new season, regardless of whether it doesn’t help in something especially great about the arrangement. The cinematographer of the show, Erik Messerschmidt as of late included that he didn’t know what will occur for the show straight away however he is seeking after the third season.
“I’ve heard things are on hold for a little bit. We’ll see. Who knows?” he told Collider. “But it would be an honour to go back.” He also mentioned that he loved working with David and he really adores the cast and the crew of the show. He felt that it was undoubtedly an incredible period of his life for certain. “I’ve been 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”, he quipped.
Special Agent Bill Tench, played by Holt McCallsny had a talk with Pop Culture and said that he not only does he have hope for the next season but also two more seasons on top of that.
“I don’t think anybody knows right now, in August of 2019, exactly what lies in store for Holden and Bill, and Wendy,” he said. He also said he was hopeful that they could get to do all the five seasons as the audience really seemed to enjoy the show and responded well to it. He felt proud and very excited to keep making the show. In the past, Netflix hasn’t shied away from discontinuing and cancelling many hit shows like Santa Clarita Diet, Designated Survivor and The OA. However, according to the fans, if the service removes from the portal then it would be the last straw for them to switch from the streaming service.
