Crime drama lovers may be upset about this one. The Netflix series “Mindhunter” may not return for a third season.
Just five months after season 2 was released, the show was put on “indefinite hold,” reported People.
Entertainment Weekly reported that leading cast members Jonathan Groff (Holden Ford), Holt McCallany (Bill Tench) and Anna Torv (Dr. Wendy Carr) were all released from their contracts on the show.
The show's executive producer David Fincher is currently working on two other projects for Netflix.
“David focused on directing his first Netflix film Mank and on producing the second season of Love, Death and Robots,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
“He may revisit Mindhunter again in the future, but in the meantime, he felt it wasn’t fair to the actors to hold them from seeking other work while he was exploring new work of his own,” the statement concluded.
So far, the Twitter profiles of Netflix and "Mindhunter" have not released statements on their social media pages.
The show tells the stories of real-life serial killers and is based on the life of John E. Douglas, an FBI Special Agent. Douglas was one of the FBI's first criminal profilers, and interviewed 59 killers in his first year alone. Throughout his career, he spoke to infamous criminals including David Berkowitz (known by many as Son of Sam), Ted Bundy, and even Charles Manson
