Mindhunter season 3 seems like it should be a dead cert, given the serial killer drama's widespread critical acclaim. But while the Netflix show hasn't been canceled, a new report from Deadline says the options on the cast expired in December 2019. Basically, this means that the cast is free to find other work, and are no longer contractually obliged to participate in a third season.

Netflix told Deadline that the reason for this is that director David Fincher, who's extremely hands-on with the show and directs multiple episodes per season, is focused on directing the movie Mank. That film is about the life of Herman J. Mankiewicz, the screenwriter of Citizen Kane. Fincher also has another season of Netflix series Love, Death and Robots on the way.
