Mindhunter is one of the few series which did well, but now it is on the verge of a cliffhanger. The series has been put on indefinite hold, and this is something which is saddening for all the fans out there. This is not something which was expected, but now the word has come from Netflix itself, so there is no point in thinking about it. The series hasn’t been one of the most-watched, but that doesn’t mean the series was terrible enough to be dumped midway.
Off late, there have been incidents that have changed things, and the COVID-19 has affected the world economy too, so there are going to be some aftermath effects on the industry also. Although the plan to put it on an indefinite hold has been made way before these events and it is not even remotely related to it. So we dived into the details to know the reason why you wouldn’t see the series anytime soon.
Is there a release date for the third season of Mindhunter?
The series did succeed in making a big fanbase, and it is something that has kept the fans hooked to it for so long. The series premiered in October 2017, and then came the waiting time it has been a two-year-long wait for the fans. The second season aired in August 2019, so that’s something way too outrageous for the diehard fans also. No matter what’s the popularity of the show but a two-year-long wait can woo even the loyal fans too.
So this time, fans weren’t expecting much, but the least inevitable happened, and the series has been put on indefinite hold. Now, this is something which is going to cost the show a fortune in terms of the fanbase it has made in the last two seasons.
Who are all going to return for the third season of Mindhunter?
Although the renewal of the series has been left on the mercy of destiny if the series makes it return at any point in time, here is the list of characters you can expect to join the third season-
- Special Agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff)
- Special Agent Gregg Smith (Joe Tuttle)
- Brian (Zachary Scott Ross)
- Bill Tench (Holt McCallany)
- Wendy Carr (Anna Torv)
- Ted Gunn (Michael Cerveris)
These are the characters we are expecting to see them return, but there could be new entrants in the series, and this is something we are expecting for the third season.
What could be the plot of the third season of Mindhunter?
The central feature of the series is the crime world, and the way agencies deal with these deadly criminals. The series is expected to see harsh interrogations, crime plots, deceits, and a hell lot of politics too. Also, the internal rift within the FBI is going to play a pivotal role in shaping the storyline of the third season.
