That’s really unfortunate, although it could have been worse if he said Fincher wasn't interested in Season 3 at all. At this point, it really does seem like the five-season plan is more of a pipe dream that'll never happen. Of course, Mindhunter’s limbo status could very well change once Hollywood starts up again, but it’s hard to be optimistic. Plus, just because David Fincher is finished filming Mank, that doesn’t mean that he’ll even be able to hop right back to Mindhunter so soon. There’s also post-production and promotional commitments to think about, and Fincher also has other projects on the horizon that he's meant to produce or be an EP on.
