David Fincher and Netflix are reportedly in the talks about continuing Mindhunter, a psychological-thriller series about two FBI agents in the ’70s who investigate the psyche of burgeoning serial killers of the time.
Despite already having two seasons behind itself, the series hasn’t really lived up to critical acclaim, but it created a very passionate following among the streamers, which is the main reason why the American film director and the streaming giant are in contact and are considering moving forward with the new season.
“It’s still very early days, but Fincher sounds more upbeat about the project,” states an inside source.
Any new content seems to be dependent on Fincher’s schedule. The acclaimed director has a reputation for being hyper-detailed in his productions, overseeing every aspect of a project. This would likely set precedence for a lengthy timeframe for the season’s completion, that is if it ever gets greenlit.
Fincher expressed in previous interviews, “I certainly needed some time away. We had all hands on deck to finish Season 2 and we didn’t have a ton of scripts and a ton of outlines and a bible standing by for Season 3. I’ll admit I was a little bit like, ‘I don’t know that I’m ready to spend another two years in the crawl space.’”
