It can be highly acclaimed among moviegoers and strong critics, but the future of David Fincher’s “Mindhunter” series seems to be in doubt, reports Deadline.
Having spent five months since the second season was launched on Netflix, the streaming service has made no move in a possible renewal of the third season of the criminal thriller drama, and last month the cast options, including Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Anna Torv were allowed to expire.
A Netflix spokesman said in a statement that it is not as serious as it seems: “David focuses on directing his first Netflix movie” Mank “and producing the second season of” Love, Death and Robots. “You can visit Mindhunter again. again in the future, but in the meantime he felt it was not fair for the actors to prevent them from looking for another job while he was exploring his own work. “
The sources for the exchange say that while the cast loved working with Fincher, but it may be linked to another series in the future. In addition, Fincher is reportedly not particularly excited at the prospect of another long location session and wanted a bigger budget for future episodes, which is unlikely since they say there has been no significant communication between Netflix, the director and the cast about a third season.
The door remains open, and Fincher and Netflix are still in bed together in the foreseeable future, but whether it’s more “Mindhunter” or something else, we’ll see.
