Mindhunter fans baffled as boss shares dream ending and plans to 'revisit' show – despite rumoured Netflix axe

MINDHUNTER'S boss sparked hope among fans, the series might make a comeback after he described his dream ending.

While the serial killer drama has not officially axed by Netflix, producer David Fincher had said it was unlikely to return despite its ratings success.

But now he has opened up about how he would like the series to actually end after only two seasons aired on the streaming giant.

The series follows two FBI agents who spearhead profiling techniques in the late 1970s and early 1980s, combining real-life criminals like Charles Manson with the narrative.

The show stars Holt McCallany and Jonathan Groff as the FBI agents while David Fincher acts as the executive producer and occasional director.


"At some point I’d love to revisit it," Fincher told Variety.

"The hope was to get all the way up to the late 90s, early 2000s, hopefully get all the way up to people knocking on the door at Dennis Rader's house."

He explained even though Mindhunter was popular it probably did not have enough of an audience to justify its cost.

"Listen, for the viewership that it had, it was an expensive show," Fincher explained.

"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."

He added: “I don’t know if it makes sense to continue… It was an expensive show. It had a very passionate audience, but we never got the numbers that justified the cost.”

The producer previously revealed the personal toll the show took on him.

Speaking to Vulture, David said: "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. 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.' […] Mindhunter was a lot for me."
