So I just read a headline. Mindhunter has been put in an indefinite hold and all the actors have been released from their contracts. WHAT???
This is heartbreaking news to me as I am a huge fan of the show. The show follows two FBI agents who interview some of the worst serial killers like Edmund Kemper and Charles Manson, to find out what makes them tick and kill. It was such an interesting and intriguing show.
I especially enjoyed the episodes that featured the Coed Killer Edmund Kemper. As I used to live in Santa Cruz, CA, just down the road from the home Edmund lived in with his mother. Now this was years after he had already been captured and sentenced to 7 consecutive life sentences. He is serving his time at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville. I remember driving by that house and wondering if the people now living in it know what happened there. If they know Edmund murdered his mom there, cutting her head off and placing it on the mantle, to throw darts at. As well as other disgusting things I won’t discuss here. He also brought a lot of his deceased victims there to do things with their body. He then buried them in the garden. Crazy scary stuff.
So I’m incredibly sad this show is possibly ending. It has been by far one of the most interesting shows on Netflix. So hopefully they will be able to resume filming it in the future.
