The American TV series consisting of top-class psychological crime drama and thriller is gonna 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 in a more unique way. This particular TV series is centered on the true stories of Mindhunter, the professional crime psychology investigation unit inside of the FBI which was formed by John E and Mark Olshaker. The story was brought by Douglas regarding the original storyline. Joe Penhall, Charlize Theron, Beth Kono, Ceán Chaffin, Joshua Donen, David Fincher, and lastly Courtenay Miles are the executive producers of this TV series. The showrunners released the first installment of the series back in 2017 and that 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 2 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 release of the third season. But neither the showrunners nor the streaming giant has an exact release date in particular for the third installment.

In accordance with the sources, the news tells 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 is gonna 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 to understand how the psychology and the mindset of the serial killers actually 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. What they actually do is study the psychology of the serial killer and take their interviews in order to understand their Modus Operandi. This will help FI to solve the cases in an easier way.

As the first two seasons progressed with a background of 1970s and 1980s respectively, we can assume that the Mindhunter Season 3 will again have a 10 year time-lapse. As we have seen in the last scene of the 9th episode of season 2 that the BTK killer is still operating freely, we can assume that the BTK killer will have a major role in the third season.
