It’s been a month since Season 2 of the series hit our screens. Fans are now getting anxious to know if there’s any hope for Mindhunter Season 3 in the future. The debut installment had much ability to make us crave for more and more chapters ahead. Netflix needs to tell us more about the highly-anticipated season. As of now, here’s everything we know so far.
The popular crime drama follows two FBI investigators, Holden Ford, and Bill Tench as they interview various serial killers. Along with psychologist Wendy Carr, they attempt to understand how these dangerous murderers think. Moreover, they execute it entirely in the hope of applying this knowledge to solve ongoing cases. Set in 1977 to 1980, the first season focused on the early days of criminal psychology and profiling at the FBI. Whereas, Season 2 went on to discuss the Atlanta child murder between 1971 -1981.
The psychological thriller debuted back in October 2017 on Netflix. Two years later, on August 2019, the streamer released a second season. Both the installment turned out to be towering successes for the streaming platform. However, to a large extent, the second chapter failed to be as impressive as the first one. Based on its performance, fans are now doubtful about the future of the series. When will Netflix renew Mindhunter Season 3?
Mindhunter Season 3: Renewal
The series is one of the finest experiments in the genre. The execution of the crime drama is exceptional and unique in its own way. Hence, millions of fans hope for a hundred of future installments. However, it all depends upon Netflix if it decides to renew it any further or not. As of now, the streamer is yet to show us a green flag.
The streamer usually takes a month to renew its show. In fact, for popular and successful ones, the renewal is announced even before. As per the routine, Netflix should’ve greenlit Mindhunter Season 3 by now. The delay is stressful for a large number of supporters. However, Mindhunter has much potential to run for a bunch of installments ahead. And, the streamer wouldn’t want to cancel a series as well-performing as this one.
Showrunners Plan For Five Season
Mindhunter’s future is entirely in the hands of the outspread streaming platform. Series writer Joe Penhall has previously mentioned that he has a ‘five-season Bible’ for the series. In order to reach the five-season goal, the creators hoped Season 2 to perform well with the audience. It may not be as impressive as the debut season, but it was still well-received by millions of Netflix subscribers. Hence, chances for the renewal Mindhunter Season 3 seem likely.
When Will It Release?
Probabilities of the renewal of Mindhunter Season 3 are high. Hence, as soon Netflix shows us the green flag, the cast and crew will begin filming for it. Similar to the previous season, the upcoming one may also take around two years to hit the screens. However, fans can expect the crime drama to be back as soon as mid-2021.
The first two installments of the series focus on the criminal activities that undergo in the 1970s and 1980s. Besides, they focus on the investigation surrounding various serial killers of that time. Hence, if the streamer renews the show, it may set its story in or around 1981. Moreover, the plot may pick up another set of criminals from the decade to be investigated by Ford and Tench.
