Mindhunter is a serious crime killer drama first premiere on the streaming platform on October 13, 2017. It is grounded on the true-crime book ‘Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit’. It was written by retired FBI agent John Douglas and author Mark Olshaker. The series is produced by David Fincher and created by Joe Penhall. Let’s see when we will get information about Mindhunter Season 3 Release Date.
The series was initially picked up at Netflix for two seasons, and there are speculations for renewal in the future. It follows the story of special agents Bill Tench and Holden Ford, who founded the Behavioral Science Unit (BSU) within the FBI Academy’s training Division in Quantico, Virginia, assisted by psychologist Wendy Carr. They interview imprisoned serial killers to understand how they think about the crime. They usually interrogate the killers to solve the ongoing cases. After the outstanding performance of the previous seasons, viewers are eagerly waiting for season 3.
Plot: What can Mindhunter Season 3 be about?
Season 1 takes place from 1977 to 1980. It is a story of standalone Special Agents. Ford and Tench used to interview all imprisoned serial killers. They have found a newly commissioned department aided by a notorious serial killer Edmund Kemper to understand serial killers’ psychology and solve the ongoing cases.
Season 2 is set between 1980 and 1981. It mainly focuses on the real-life Atlanta Murders. That means that we could catch sight of any number of disreputable serial killers on the show. We may see more BTK killers in season 3 who has seemingly appeared in many scenes of the first 2 seasons. It is also cued from many news that the third season will pick up from the ending of season 2 and takes place from early to mid-80s. They could feature Ford and Tench travelling around the country, educating the local police department, and catching their local criminals through this method like its predecessor seasons. It may also introduce us to more such serial killers from that era.
Other than investigation, there are also plenty of stories left regarding Bill’s adopted son, Brian, who was involved in a murder during Season 2. More vaguely, McCallany said to a leading reporter that season 3 would be a complete “reimagining of the show”. After completing two seasons with so much popularity, filming in Pittsburgh, the show may move to a new location for the third season.
Cast: Who is returning for “Mindhunter” 3rd Part?
The principal cast members of the first two seasons include McCallany as Bill Tench, Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford, and Ana Trov as Wendy Carr. Apart from the main cast members, other actors supporting role we may see are Hannah Gross as Ford’s better-half Debbie, Cotter Smith as Robert Shepherd and Cameron Britton as the serial killer Edmund Kemper.
Some more actors who add up in Season 2 are Christopher Livingstone as Wayne Williams, Oliver Cooper as David Berkowitz, and Damon Herriman as Charles Manson. All played as real-life fictional serial killers.
The return of lead actors’ for season 3 will depend entirely on the availability of the actors. In an interview with the production house, they informed Netflix that they had already released all actors from their contracts. They also told us that they would choose an entirely new cast for season 3. However, the previous cast may return, which will entirely depend on the production unit.
Release Date: Mindhunter Season 3
Season 2 of Mindhunter was premièred on Netflix on 16th August 2019. The runtime of both seasons is 46 min each with nine episodes. The fan has to wait two years for the second season to hit the OTT platform. However, this time the wait is much longer as Netflix has reportedly put the series on indefinite hold.
David Fincher is the producer working on multiple projects and directed multiple episodes of this series. His biographical Dama “Mank” was released on Netflix on 13 November 2020 and attached as producer of the second season of Netflix’s “Love, death, and Robots”. These releases suggest that all is well with the producer of the series and streaming giants. Nevertheless, there is still hope as in November 2020, Fincher said in an interview with Variety, “At some point, I’d love to revisit it”. So, we can look forward to the Mindhunter season 3 release sometime in 2023 or 2024.
