What did Holt McCallany say about Mindhunter season 3?

Last February, the news of Mindhunter season 3's shelving broke hearts worldwide. But in a twist that's reigniting hope, one of the show's stars remains optimistic about its revival.

During a chat with Awards Daily's David Phillips, Holt McCallany dropped a tantalizing nugget that could reignite the fervor among Mindhunter fans. With a seasoned actor's tease, he hinted at a potential return:

""I’ve heard that David [Fincher]’s thought about it [bringing back the show]. I’m not saying [Mindhunter is] going to come back. But what I am saying is that if it comes back, I’m coming back with it. You can take that to the bank, but it’ll depend on what David wants to do.""

Adding a dash of excitement, he remarked, "It’s been a few years now, so it’s probably unlikely, but just even that he would think about it is a hopeful sign."

While it might not be the definitive "yes" fans are clamoring for, Holt McCallany isn't off the mark! The mere consideration from David Fincher is a beacon of hope for Mindhunter devotees!

Of course, the ultimate call still rests with Netflix. But who's to say 2024 won't be the year when the streaming giant heeds the fervent calls of fans and grants their wish? We've seen comebacks for favorites such as Lucifer, Mean Girls, Percy Jackson, and more in the last few years. So, maybe Mindhunter will find its way back into our screens as well!
