The American TV series consisting of top-class psychological crime drama and thriller will be back soon with a new glimpse of a thriller. What are we talking about? Yeah… Mindhunter. After releasing two of its unique seasons, the showrunners of Mindhunter are now thinking of a third installment. Regardless, creator Joe Penhall has found a way to represent Mindhunter Season 3 uniquely. This particular TV series is centered on the true stories of Mindhunter, the professional crime psychology investigation unit inside of the FBI, which John E and Mark Olshaker formed. Douglas brought the tale regarding the original storyline. Joe Penhall, Charlize Theron, Beth Kono, Ceán Chaffin, Joshua Donen, David Fincher, and Courtenay Miles are the executive producers of this TV series. The showrunners released the first installment of the series back in 2017, which became one of the most distinguished crime thrillers of the decade.
Expected Release Date for Mindhunter Season 3
The first installment of the Mindhunter was released by the showrunners back in 2017, and after a successful run for two years, the second installment was released in 2019. The first and the second season consisted of 10 and 9 episodes, respectively. Now the news of the Mindhunter Season 3 came to the surface in 2020 when the showrunners made a public declaration about the third season’s release. But neither the showrunners nor the streaming giant has an exact release date for the third installment.
The sources tell us that David Fincher had a deep consultation with Netflix about the elongation of the third installment back in April 2021. Regardless, they finished up the conversation and continued with their decision to continue the works for the third season. So, considering all the facts in our hands, we can say that the Mindhunter Season 3 will come on our screen, not before the 4th quarter of 2022 or the first quarter of 2023.
Casting for Mindhunter Season 3
The confirmed cast for the Mindhunter Season 3 will be as follows:
- Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford
- Holt McCallany as Bill Tench
- Anna Torv as Wendy Carr
- Sonny Valicenti as Dennis Rader AKA BTK killer
Anticipated Storyline for Mindhunter Season 3
The storyline of the Mindhunter is based on the experience of a young psychologist called Holden Ford, who teams up with Another psychologist Bill Tench and helps the FBI understand how the psychology and the mindset of serial killers work. The department they work for is called the Behavioral Science Unit of FBI and is situated at the academy of FI in Quantico, Virginia. They study the psychology of the serial killer and take their interviews to understand their Modus Operandi. This will help FI to solve the cases more efficiently.
As the first two seasons progressed with a background of the 1970s and 1980s, we can assume that the Mindhunter Season 3 will again have a ten-year time-lapse. Although, as we have seen in the last scene of the 9th episode of season 2, the BTK killer is still operating freely; we can assume that the BTK killer will have a significant role in the third season.
