My interest in Mindhunter is borderline irrational but, seriously, I can’t remember the last time I devoured the first and second season of a show in one weekend.
And what a weekend.
But I come bearing news – the bloke who plays the flat-topped, chain-smoking Agent Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) has just revealed that he and exec producer David Fincher are keen for five heckin’ seasons.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, McCallany recalled how the exacting Fincher had a specific timeline for him.
“He said ‘Listen, are you ready to do this for five seasons? Because even if I fuck it up, it’s gonna go five seasons, and I don’t intend to fuck it up.’
“So, I’d like to think that we will continue, for as long as David is intrigued by telling this particular story.”
His hope that, going forward, they’ll continue to meet some absolute notorious and well-known crims – we’re talking along the lines of John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy and Jeffery Dahmer.
“I’m not certain what David has in mind, but the heart and soul of the show seems to be these two guys going to prisons and conducting these interviews together and trying to understand, why the hell would a person do this?”
Mindhunter is yet to be renewed for a third season, but McCallany hopes and expects to be playing Tench for many years.
