Mindhunter Season 3 Release date: When to Expect?

Officially, no announcement about the release of season 3 has been available yet. After the conclusion of season 2, some things took place that made it seem like there won’t be another season in the future for the show

Firstly, David Fincher showed a lack of interest in continuing the production of the show for subsequent seasons. After that the cast of the show had their contracts released. Even from the financial point of view, the show didn’t deliver as expected.

Sure the critics were showering the praises all over the show but it didn’t accumulate intended viewership numbers. Overall this hinted that it’s about time to pack things up and fans need to move on.

A new piece of information provided by Small Screen hinted that there are possible ongoing talks between Fincher and Netflix about the release of season 3. So Fincher might’ve changed his mind and now giving another shot to Mindhunter. If this news is true then we may see the announcement of season 3 very soon.

As far as season 3 is concerned, there isn’t any connecting plotline left from season 2. Sure there is Bill and his issues with his Kid.
