Mindhunter will not be returning for a third season on Netflix. This news comes from the man behind the series – director David Fincher. Jonathan Groff (above), Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Joe Tuttle, Albert Jones, Stacey Roca, Michael Cerveris, Lauren Glazier, and Sierra McClain star in the psychological crime thriller.
Based on the memoir of FBI agent John Douglas, the story revolves around a pair of FBI Agents (Groff and McCallany) and a psychologist (Torv) who operate the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit. They launch a project to interview imprisoned serial killers in hopes of using that knowledge to catch others.
“I’m very proud of the first two seasons. 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 3]. I don’t blame them; they took risks to get the show off the ground… 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.”
In a previous interview, there was still hope the series would return with new episodes at some point.
