Mindhunter fans are hoping that Netflix and director David Fincher will make a third season of the crime drama series, and one star is ready to return. Jonathan Groff (above, right) spoke about the series during a recent interview about his role in The Matrix Resurrections feature film.
Mindhunter is a series based on the memoir of FBI veteran John Douglas and last aired in 2019. Holt McCallany, Anna Torv, Joe Tuttle, Albert Jones, Stacey Roca, Michael Cerveris, Lauren Glazier, and Sierra McClain also starred in the crime drama series.
Fincher decided to put a stop to the series after two seasons in order to focus on other projects. Groff said the following about that decision, per THR:
“To me, Mindhunter is Fincher. The whole experience for me was the honor and privilege of getting to work with him. This was the main draw for me. This was the main joy of getting to have that experience. So I’m not a sports person really at all, but it’s like the [1997-1998] Chicago Bulls. Do you go for another season with the team? Or do you just do what the general manager says? But if the general manager believes that it should stop, you have to go with the general manager. And this is how I feel with David. The minute he says he wants to do another one, I’ll be there in a second. But I trust his vision and his instincts, and so I leave it always in his hands, as ever.”
Fincher revealed in previous interviews that Mindhunter took a lot out of him, and he has since kept busy with other projects, per Indiewire. Asif Kapadia, a director who worked on the Netflix series, pushed for more of the series as recently as October 2021. He shared the following on Twitter:
Audiences around the world need let @netflix know that there is a real interest & demand for Season 3 of @MINDHUNTER_ if you make enough noise, It might actually happen…. #DavidFincher #mindhunter https://t.co/IZjDpxOX9k

What do you think? Do you want to see a third season of Mindhunter on Netflix? Do you think the show will return someday?
It’s based on real events, based also on a book. David Fincher is awesome but he isn’t GOD. The costumes, the sets, and the performances are what make Mindhunter so immersive. He could easily just let someone else direct, and it’s Netflix who can eventually make that call. Hopefully after “Mank” his contract will just continue to fizzle out and we can get a continuation. If you didn’t plan on finishing, why start?
I mean what’s the point of doing all those tidbits of the BTK thing if you’re not going to finish it that’s not cool at all I would never watch nothing he makes again cuz I don’t want to be left hanging like that I hate it
Yes I want to see another season. Specifically the way season 2 ended.
Hell yes ! Love the show
Please make a Season 3 of Mindhunter. We loved the series, the acting, depiction of 70’s, early 80’s. We want to see more!!
“Work on other projects”… Well, we all have our theories as to why Fincher took a step back. Mine is that he decided to do that after the Kevin Spacey debacle. His other project was producing a series of short stories with Love Death and Robots. But, whatever. Cameron Britton is the brightest star of Mindhunter in his eerily accurate portrayal of Ed Kemper. Happy Adams as Brudos and Jack Erdie as Richard Speck were fantastic too. Damon Herriman as a pretty good Charlie Manson. Basically, all Jonathan Groff has to do is stand there and not flub his lines,… Read more »
