Fincher wants 5 seasons of Mindhunter

The Neflix true-crime series could be around for a while yet. 

David Fincher wants up to 5 seasons of Mindhunter, an interview with a cast member has revealed.

Holt McCallany, who plays FBI agent Bill Tench in the show, said in a recent interview that the director was looking to create 5 seasons of the series, which is currently airing on Netflix.

“You know I'm in small, you know, supporting parts, peripheral parts. And so it was a big deal for me to be invited back by David in one of the leads. 

“Because you know I believe in his talent, you know, and I know that you know, he wants to do five years of this show. Five seasons of these characters and so I'm hopeful, you know I don't take anything for granted.”

Mindhunter is a recent Netflix Original Series, helmed by director David Fincher, known for films such as Fight Club, The Social Network and Seven

McCallany has featured in a number of previous Fincher projects, including Alien 3 and Fight Club.

Mindhunter follows two FBI agents, Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (McCallany) as they travel the US interviewing serial killers in a bid to understand their psychology.

The series has a number features that make it a bonafide Fincher project, including muted colours, great looking cinematography and a world-weary tone. 

Whilst Fincher has only personally directed 4 of the 10 current episodes, the subject matter and his influence reminds you of his underrated true-crime thriller Zodiac.

Mindhunter has already been confirmed for a second season, so it's likely it will make it to at least 3 if you consider Netflix's current trend of renewing shows.

You can catch the first season of Mindhunter on Netflix right now.
