Future of Mindhunter in doubt at Netflix

It's looking increasingly unlikely that a third season will happen.

Netflix has sparked fears that Mindhunter is set for cancellation after confirming that the show's cast have all been released from their contracts.

A spokesperson for Entertainment Weekly explained that its overseer David Fincher is currently busy with other projects and didn’t want to keep the actors, including leads Jonathon Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv, from pursuing different roles.  

"David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank (a biopic about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewucz) and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots," they said.

“He felt it wasn't fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own." 

Mindhunter follows FBI agents Holden Ford (Groff) and Bill Tench (McCallany) as they, along with psychologist Wendy Carr (Torv), work within the Behavioral Science unit interviewing serial killers to develop the idea of criminal profiling. 

Netflix doesn’t release viewing figures for its shows but both seasons have received widespread critical acclaim. 

The cancellation has yet to be officially confirmed by Netflix but that hasn’t stopped fans from taking to social media to express their concern. 

You can stream both seasons of Mindhunter on Netflix now.
