We have some upsetting news for fans of the Netflix series Mindhunter.
David Fincher, the executive producer of the series and also the director of most of the episodes, has said it’s very unlikely that a third season will be made.
“We lived [in Pittsburgh] for almost three years. Not year in, year out, but we spent probably six or seven months a year over three years. We had an apartment there, and a car. Mindhunter was a lot for me,” Fincher said in a new interview with Vulture.
When asked if Mindhunter is “done” as far as he’s concerned, Fincher said, “I think probably.”
“Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was an expensive show. We talked about ‘Finish Mank and then see how you feel,’ but I honestly don’t think we’re going to be able to do it for less than I did season two. And on some level, you have to be realistic about dollars have to equal eyeballs,” Fincher added.
He also said, “It’s a 90-hour work week. It absorbs everything in your life. When I got done, I was pretty exhausted, and I said, ‘I don’t know if I have it in me right now to break season three.’”
Fincher‘s new Netflix movie Mank will be released in December.
