Fans who are hoping for a third season of Mindhunter might be in for some good news.
New reports are claiming that series producer David Fincher is in talks with Netflix for a brand new instalment of the cult psychological crime drama.
For those who haven't seen it yet, Mindhunter is based on a 1995 true crime book 'Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit' by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker.
The series starred Frozen's Jonathan Groff as FBI agent Holden Ford and Holt McCallany as Bill Tench who work within the FBI's Behavioural Science unity where they research imprisoned serial killers to investigate their psyche.
Netflix has released two seasons thus far - the first dropped in October 2017 and the second almost two years later in August 2019.
Fans were dealt a blow in 2019 after executive producer David Fincher said he didn't know if he had it in him to "break season three".
Speaking to Vulture, he also discussed the show's large budget and it's viewership levels. He said: "Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was a very expensive show."
In January 2020, the show's main cast members including Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany and Cameron Britton were released from their contracts.
Now it seems David Fincher, who has directed the critically acclaimed films Fight Club and The Social Network as well as Madonna's Vogue video, has changed his mind. A source spoke to Small Screen suggesting that a third Mindhunter season was being discussed by both David and Netflix.
"All I can really tell you about Mindhunter is that conversations between Netflix and Fincher are ongoing," a source revealed to Small Screen.
"They are discussing the possibility of bringing the show back for a third season. It's still very early days, but Fincher sounds more upbeat about the project."
Tyla has contacted Netflix for comment.
