The second season of Netflix’s “Mindhunter” dropped last Friday and was quickly binged on by various viewers. Reviews for the first season were quite strong, and the second run scored even better notices with acclaim for the show getting into its groove from the get go and taking on a much bigger scope and scale.
So now comes the inevitable talk of a potential third season, even though Netflix has yet to renew the show for another go around. Speaking about the show’s future with THR, series star and thinking woman’s hot crumpet Holt McCallany revealed that not only will the new season switch up shooting locations from its current Pittsburgh home, it will likely undergo a “complete reimagining” narratively which would take show even further.
In fact, McCallany hopes the series will bring in even more notable serial killers for Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff), Bill Tench (McCallany), and Dr. Wendy Carr (Anna Torv) to interview and deal with:
“My hope going forward is that we’ll just continue to meet some of these really well-known criminals, where you start to talk about the John Wayne Gacys, the Ted Bundys, the Jeffrey Dahmers. I’m not certain what David [Fincher] has in mind, but the heart and soul of the show seems to be these two guys going to prisons and conducting these interviews together and trying to understand, why the hell would a person do this?”
McCallany also revealed that the series has a definitive timeline that producer/director David Fincher is committed to:
“He said ‘Listen, are you ready to do this for five seasons? Because even if I f–k it up, it’s gonna go five seasons, and I don’t intend to f–k it up.’ So I’d like to think that we will continue, for as long as David is intrigued by telling this particular story.”
The first two seasons of “Mindhunter” are available to stream now on Netflix.
