Mindhunter Season 3 Release: Rumor or Reality?

When Mindhunter season 2 ended, I was curiously waiting for the next season.

However, after months of a long wait, in January 2020, Netflix announced that the potential release of Mindhunter Season 3 is put on an indefinite Hold as its director David Fincher is going to pursue some other projects.

And by some other project, I meant the feature film MANK that recently won two Oscars in the best cinematography and best production design category

Now that the Award season is over, the director and showrunner are once again in the talks with Netflix to bring back the psychological thriller show.

What does this mean?

Will there be a new Mindhunter season?

Or it’s just a hoax to Hype up some of their new project coming on Netflix.

Well, let’s find out:

Latest Update on Mindunter season 3 Release

Is it true that Minecraft season 3 will be returning?

Well, if it was done shady website, I wouldn’t have agreed.

When it comes to the release of a new series or a new season, it becomes quite difficult to find the difference between a rumor and legit news.

This time, it’s news portal small screen that has confirmed David Fincher’s

desires and expectations to release some more Mindhunter episodes.

Even though the talks are happening, but still they are in a very early stage.

So, it’s hard to predict what’s going to happen next.

However, unlike last time, this year, he seems a bit more positive in approach as his latest feature film has won Oscars in two major categories.

When the small screen posted this sort of news, I was shell-shocked as in one of his previous interviews, the Mindhunter director revealed the primary reason why it’s highly unlikely to have more Mindhunter episodes.

As I expected, the reason was production costs.

In his exact wording, this is what he said.

However, despite all this, the mindhunter TV series surpassed everyone’s expectations and received one of the highest viewership to date.

So, I guess that’s enough reason for Netflix to once again resume the talks with the director David Fincher for a new Mindhunter season 3.

What is the Plot of the MindHunter Series?

Well, based on the 90s True Crime book, MindHunter: inside the FBI’s Elite Serial crime unit follows the life of FBI agent Bill Tench, Holden Ford, and psychologist Wendy carr.

Together, they operate the FBI’s Behavioral Science unit to solve some crimes using Criminal psychology and Criminal profiling.

Its first season aired in 2017 and its storyline mainly focused on the era of 1977 and 1980.

Then two years later came mindHunter season 2 that took place between the years, 1980 and 1981.

In the first season. The story was mainly about the serial killer Edmund Kemper, and in the latter one, it was all about the serial killer Wayne Williams who was involved in at least 28 deaths.

Out of them, most were children☹️.

What to Expect from MindHunter Season 3?

Now that I have told you that sometime in the future we might even see a new mindHunter season.

It’s important to discuss what’s likely to come in the upcoming season (If it happens).

Its storyline is expected to take place in the early to mid-80s.

Therefore, you can expect to see many of the stories of Infamous serial killers.

Apart from a complete New Beginning, there is still some story left off the previous season. It’s regarding Bill’s adopted son Brian.

During the course of Mindhunter season 2.l, you might have even seen him getting involved in a murder.

Final Thoughts

There are a lot of directions in which mindHunter season 3 can go. At the moment all these expectations are nothing but theory.

Only time will tell if these rumors are true or not, but as a die-hard fan of psychological thrillers, I would love to watch a new season of Mindhunter season 3 as soon as it airs on Netflix.

That is all for now.
