In a Vulture profile ahead of Mank‘s December release, Fincher revealed that sadly, Mindhunter is unlikely to return.

When asked when he came up with the idea for Mank, Fincher told writer Mark Harris, “We had done the first season of Mindhunter without a showrunner, with me pinch-hitting on a week-by-week basis. We started getting scripts for the second season, and I ended up looking at what was written and deciding I didn’t like any of it. So we tossed it and started over. I brought in Courtenay Miles, an AD I’d worked with who wanted to write, and she ended up co-showrunning Mindhunter. But it’s a 90-hour work week. It absorbs everything in your life. When I got done, I was pretty exhausted, and I said, ‘I don’t know if I have it in me right now to break season three.'”

After Fincher admitted that Mindhunter, which filmed in Pittsburgh, was “a lot” for him, Harris asked if that meant the show wouldn’t return for season three. “I think probably,” Fincher confirmed. “Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was an expensive show. We talked about “Finish Mank and then see how you feel,” but I honestly don’t think we’re going to be able to do it for less than I did season two. And on some level, you have to be realistic about dollars have to equal eyeballs.”

It’s pretty sad news that Mindhunter won’t continue, but if you want to rewatch Fincher’s dark, riveting series, the first two seasons are on Netflix now. As for Mank, Fincher’s newest film will drop on Netflix on December 4, 2020.
