'Mindhunter': Cast Released From Contracts With Show Put On "Indefinite Hold"
After two well-received seasons of the show, Mindhunter will go on an indefinite hiatus. Netflix has released the show's stars from their contracts.
Mindhunter's hiatus comes as a result of David Fincher's schedule commitments. Fincher acts as an executive producer for the show and has directed seven episodes across its two seasons. Mindhunter will go on hiatus so Fincher can finish directing his Netflix-produced film Mank and fulfill his executive producer duties on the Netflix show Love, Death & Robots.
Mindhunter Season 3 is still a possibility
Mindhunter debuted on Netflix in 2017. The crime thriller follows FBI agents as they interview serial killers for knowledge to assist with ongoing investigations. The show's present hiatus does not bring an end to Mindhunter, but it is unclear when production of a third season will resume.
A new feature film from David Fincher!
Fans of David Fincher's work can, however, continue to enjoy the director's trademark style in the work he'll be producing away from Mindhunter. Mank will be Fincher's first feature film since Gone Girl was released in 2014. It focuses on screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz's battles with Orson Welles over writing credits on the landmark film Citizen Kane.
Mank does not yet have a release date. Love, Death & Robots, meanwhile, is an animated science-fiction anthology series that Fincher produces for Netflix. This series premiered in 2019 and the production of a second season is underway now.
