According to Jonathan Groff, Mindhunter may not be entirely extinct.
The Netflix series star hinted at the possibility of a Mindhunter Season 3, and fans went wild with excitement.
It follows Groff’s Holden Ford as he and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) create a psychological profile of serial killers over the course of the show.
Based on the 1995 book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker, it focused on the real-life method used by federal investigators to track down serial offenders.
Two seasons of the show have been made available so far, and they were amazing.
A lot of people are eager to find out what happened to Ford and Tench after the events of the second concluded on a cliffhanger (as well as the killer that has been foreshadowed since day one).
However, a new installment has failed to take off.
While many of us have accepted that there will never be a Mindhunter Season 3, Groff believes it is not completely implausible.
The actor was asked by Jimmy Fallon which of the following was more likely to occur: The third season of either Frozen or Mindhunter is on the horizon.
He responded, “Mindhunter’s third season and Frozen’s third film are both possible, even though they appear to be very different projects.”
Well. That’s definitely a hot one.
One Reddit user’s response to the comment: “Stop doing that… Don’t give me any hope.”
“Don’t go breaking my heart,” said a third person.
It was revealed in a 2020 interview that showrunner David Fincher has no immediate plans to produce a third season.
“Listen, this was a pricey show for the number of viewers it drew. “Finish Mank and see how you feel” was a topic of discussion, but I don’t think we can do it for less money than I did Season 2 of the show “Vulture was informed of this.
On the other hand, “dollars have to equal eyes” in order to be realistic.
On the subject of how much time and effort it would take to produce the show, the creator went on to say that it would take him about seven months of the year to complete.
He went on to say: “I found Mindhunter to be a challenge. We produced Mindhunter’s first season without a showrunner, and I filled in as needed.
“When the second season scripts arrived, I took a look at them and decided I didn’t like anything. So we threw it away and began again.”
Never, however, rule out a last-minute change of heart.
