Ever since Mindhunter first hit screens in 2017, the show has had everyone glued to their screens. And when season 2 of crime thriller dropped last year, fans wasted no time in getting their teeth into the newest installment.

So, of course, many of us have been eagerly awaiting news on the long-anticipated third season.  But this week, there’s been some bad news…

The Netflix original series, Mindhunter, hit our screens again last year.

And season two was everything that we dreamed it would be.

The most interesting part is the fact that we get to learn about the little details of mass murders that really took place. Things that were never reported by the media, but were found to be true, are mentioned throughout the series to create informative, yet entertaining, episodes.

Season 1 received great reviews, as audiences seemed to be hooked on the thrilling nature of the program.

We were hooked from the moment that we knew that Cameron Britton would star in the role. The accurate depiction of the killer was what made this chilling storyline worth investing in.

From 1972 to 1973, Kemper murdered ten people including his mother and his grandparents. He was also known for his necrophilic tendencies. He is currently still imprisoned at California Medical Facility.

We were very excited to see Ed Kemper again. That’s a line that we never thought we’d say…

Nowadays, it’s completely normal to have an obsession with serial killers, right? Or is that just us? In season 2, we delved deeper into The Manson Family, an American cult consisting of over one hundred followers who liked to murder for fun…

Which involved the casual use of drugs. But that’s still no excuse to murder…

And the prime focus was on the child murders that took place in Atlanta between 1979 and 1981.

In those years, at least twenty-eight children and young adults were killed by Wayne Williams and possibly some of his accomplices, but that was never determined.

And the rest remains a mystery.  

Charlize Theron, who is one of the show’s executive producers, referred to the new season as “deep,” “dark,” and “wonderful.”  

For example, the ongoing threat of the BTK Killer – also known as terrifying psychopath, Dennis Rader.

For example, he’s commented that there will be a location change from Pittsburgh for future seasons.

It had previously been reported that there were plans in motion for a third offering of the series, especially given the fact that we were left with so many unanswered questions. But it seems there’s some bad news…

So, what exactly does this mean?

But the cast are allowed to pursue other work. Essentially, season 3 has been put on hold. And there’s one big reason for this…

“David is focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a Netflix spokesperson revealed to 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.”

Who know’s how long it’ll be until we see Holden Ford and Bill Tench on our screens again. Looking for something to fill that Mindhunter void in your life? Netflix is releasing a brand new true crime docu-series and it’s set to be the darkest one yet. Keep scrolling to learn more…
