Mindhunter is a crime thriller Web Series based on the true-crime book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit written by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker. Joe Penhall created the show. Penhall, along with David Fincher and Charlize Theron, produced it. The first season released on Netflix on October 13, 2017, and the second on August 16, 2019. In January, Netflix announced that the series was on a hiatus.
Expected Release Date, Cast, and Plot
There has not been any official announcement about the release date as production was put on hold. And the global pandemic further pushed everything to uncertainty. We will have to wait for quite some time for official updates on social media.
News about the cast remains in the dark as well. But we can guess that Jonathan Gross will return as Holden Ford, Holt McCallany as Bill Tench, Anna Torv as Wendy Carr, and Stacy Rica as Nancy Tench.
Set in the 80s, the series is based on true crime stories taking place all across the world. Provided that the show gets renewed, the third season will also follow a real crime, perhaps even longer this time. It might also bring some closure to the dramatic ending Season 2 left us with.
Why should fans wait for a Season 5 of Mindhunter?
If David Fincher continues to work for the show, the series will continue till Season 5. Holt McCallany had said that the series would cover five seasons with Fincher as the director because he always had a plan for that since the beginning.
Hence Season 3 of Mindhunter is presently the talk of the town because it will pave the way to an even bigger Season 4 and 5. If Fincher believes that Season 5 will be the final season, then it is something to look forward to.
