‘Mindhunter’ season 3 release date, plot: Series could get 3 more installments, to likely cover serial killer of 17 women
One of the major releases on Netflix this week is the second season of “Mindhunter.” Like in the first season, it features a season-running case while also featuring interviews with other known serial killers. However, many fans are already looking forward to seeing “Mindhunter” season 3.
The second season just started streaming on Friday on Netflix, and based on the show’s development over the years it might take a while before “Mindhunter” season 3 is announced. On the bright side, there is more chance for the series to get renewed if fans would look into one of John E. Douglas’s recent interviews.
‘Mindhunter’ season 3 possible release date: Series renewal underway?
Netflix has yet to announce “Mindhunter” season 3 officially. However, Douglas told Vulture in a previous interview that the company has prepared a “five-year arc” for the series. The former FBI criminal profiler could be hinting at the crime thriller based on his books and work experiences to go on for five seasons. But it is still best to wait for Netflix’s official word.
It took almost two years for season 2 to be announced and released. Since it just started streaming on Netflix, fans should expect another long wait to hear anything about “Mindhunter” season 3. If the production would not change much about its time frame, the third installment could be released in 2021.
‘Mindhunter’ season 3 possible plot: Serial killer and rapist with 17 victims is the next subject?
The crime thriller web series combines fiction and facts. The characters from the FBI Behavioral Science Unit, Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), are fictional but based on Douglas and his partner Robert Ressler. The on-screen interactions with serial killers like Ed Kemper (Cameron Britton) are partly fictionalized, though the cases covered are from real-life stories that Douglas covered in his books. With that, fans can draw speculations on the “Mindhunter” season 3 plot.
One subject left untouched by the Netflix series and could be the next focal case in “Mindhunter” season 3 serial killer and rapist Robert Hansen. His case was also discussed in Douglas’s 1995 non-fiction book “Mindhunter: Inside the FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit.” Hansen was convicted and sentenced to 461 years in prison for the murder of at least 17 women in Alaska with the crimes committed in over a decade.
