Mindhunter may not be getting a third season, and this is based on what Netflix let happen to the contracts of cast members including Holt McCallany. Anna Torv, and Jonathan Groff.
The cast were reportedly all released from their contracts last month when they expired.
A Netflix spokesperson explained that David Fincher, the director of the series, is currently busy.
“David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a spokesperson told Deadline. “He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime felt it wasn’t fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own.”
This news is especially surprising given how popular the show is.
