As unfortunate as it may be, we all have running list in our minds of the shows we wish had been renewed instead of canceled far too soon. Netflix is no stranger to prematurely dropping the axe on beloved shows and not hearing the end of it for what feels like the end of time. Being so, many people have the psychological crime thriller Mindhunter right at the top of their wish lists.

Based on the book Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker, Mindhunter stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany as FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench. Together with psychologist Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), the Behavioral Science Unit puts together a project to interview imprisoned serial killers with the intention of understanding and applying their psychology to ongoing cases.

Although Mindhunter hasn’t been officially canceled, we should hold our breath for a new season any time soon. Both the first and second seasons, which streamed nearly a full two years apart, earned rave reviews from critics and were fan-favorite binge-watches. Even though the highly anticipated but far, far off third season is a question mark, Mindhunter remains among the best mystery shows to watch on Netflix.
