Season 3

After the release of second season on 16 August 2019, to all those who was waiting for the news about  the next season got the announcement in beginning of 2020. In January 2020 the team announced that the series is on a indefinite hold.  This means that we do not know if the show is cancelled or not. But we know that the show was planned as an 5 season series, so that gives us some hope. Even if a new season is going to happen when would they start a production and when will it release.

One of the major reason of putting the series on hold is because of the tight and busy schedule of David Fincher. He is right now equipped with “MANK” and an aanimated series “LOVE,DEATH and ROBOTS”. Well the first would be releasing on 2021 so we could expect the production of series. to continue after its release.


The show has a wonderful team in the cast. Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany are the lead roles of Holden Ford and Bill Tench respectively.  Anna  Trov, Hannah Gross, Cotter Smith, Stacey Roca, are some of the other cast memberss of the season.

The show has been a success worldwide, not just because of its amazing cast and crew but also based on its plot and story line. It is one of the best true-crime show on Television at present.  So , there is a very  high chance for the Treat of Fiincher’s fan to appear again. Fingers crossed
