Mindhunter is an American psychological crime thriller television series created by Joe Penhall, based on the true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker. The series is executive produced by Penhall, David Fincher, and Charlize Theron, among others, and debuted worldwide on Netflix on October 13, 2017.Netflix released the second season on August 16, 2019.

Of late, the director David Fincher was earlier busy with other projects. In a recent interview,, David Fincher said that no doubts he loves the series Mindhunter but it is an expensive show.

“Not year in and year out, but … probably six or seven months a year … Mindhunter was a lot for me,” said David Fincher. “Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was a very expensive show. We talked about, ‘Finish Mank and then see how you feel,’ but I honestly don’t think we’re going to be able to do it for less than I did season two. And on some level, you have to be realistic — dollars have to equal eyeballs,” he added.

Following this in January 2020 Netflix announced that they had closed the contracts between casts and the series. Presently making of Mindhunter Season 3 is halted for indefinite times due to the coronavirus pandemic. The contracts would be renewed if David Fincher rethinks to continue the project.

However, in a latest interview, he leaves the door open to revisit Mindhunter in future. “At some point I’d love to revisit it. The hope was to get all the way up to the late 90’s, early 2000’s, hopefully get all the way up to people knocking on the door at Dennis Rader’s house,” he said.
