We all definitely spent our weekend binging the entire second season of the show. And, hence, we now await Mindhunter Season 3. Fans want the FBI investigators, Holden Ford, and Bill Tench, back on the screens again. The debut installment took us into their investigation over various dangerous serial killers. On the other hand, the second season focused on the Atlanta child murders and the BTK Strangler. Which criminal will Season 3 highlight? Here’s everything to know.
The mind-boggling series debuted back in October 2017 on Netflix. The much-anticipated Season 2 finally released after two years on August 16, 2019. Though it has just been only a few days since the premiere, Mindhunter has is all over our minds. Moreover, fans around the internet are extensively praising the latest installment. Many of them even claim it to be better than Season 1 (which apparently is a huge compliment).
Fans have now begun to question if makers are up to giving them another installment. For all the anxious fans, here’s everything we know yet.
Mindhunter Season 3: Renewal
We all know that the series deserves a hundred more seasons in total. However, it all depends upon Netflix if it decides to renew it or not. The streamer takes at least a month to look at the response from audiences. It analyzes if a show is successful enough to return. As of Mindhunter, the series stands as one of the best crime dramas today. Although, it’s currently too early presume that the viewership will turn out to be as high as required, but we hope it does.
However, Series writer Joe Penhall has said that he has a ‘five-season Bible’ for the series. Show-creators and cast members hope that the second season is well-received by the audience. If that happens, they’ll be able to reach the aspired goal of five installments. As per the current reaction by fans, Mindhunter Season 3 is almost on its way.
What Will Happen Next?
The first two seasons of the crime drama focus on the criminal activities that undergo in the 1970s and 1980s. They focused on the investigation surrounding various serial killers of that time. Hence, the potential next installment may also pick up another set of criminals from history. However, it is expected that Mindhunter Season 3 may be set in the 1980s itself, although a few years after events in Season 2.
Mindhunter Season 3: When Will It Return?
Since, we don’t have a renewal from Netflix yet, it’s hard to predict a release date for now. However, if we go by the amount of time Season 2 took to return, Mindhunter Season 3 can be expected after two years from now. We hope that the streamer renews the series for another run for it to be back by mid-2021.
Netflix is doing an outstanding job when it comes to creating crime dramas this decade. Several of its recent ones are hefty competitors to many rememberable crime shows on other platforms. Mindhunter continues to impress millions of ‘good content-cravers’ around the globe. Hopefully, it will remain to be a fan-favorite over the course of its installments.
