Will Mindhunter Have A Third Season?

It is important to clarify this. The third season is suspended and not canceled, so that little hope can be kept. However, more than a year has passed since the announcement of the streaming giant and there is still no news about it. In an interview with the specialized medium, Cinefilos Oficial, Holt McCallany (Bill) spoke about his feelings on the subject.

First he confessed how he heard the news: “One of the producers called me to let me know that the contract was going to end. At that moment I didn’t think we were going to return, in fact I assumed that we would return very soon.”

“It stopped indefinitely, it’s hard not to think that the longer we wait to come back, the more difficult is the possibility of ever returning , and it’s a shame. But I’m not the boss, I can’t decide. If they don’t want to do a third season. it is your decision. I am honored me to have been part of this , “he added. ” Time passes and I did not hear anything, now I begin to feel that we are not going to return. With great sadness I confess that I have left Mindhunter behind,” he concluded.
