“I’m very proud of the first two seasons. But it’s a very expensive show and, in Netflix’s eyes, we didn’t attract enough audiences to justify such an investment,” explained Fincher.

“I don’t blame them, they took risks to get the show off the ground, they gave me the means to do it. Mank the way I wanted and allowed me to venture down new paths with The Killer. It’s a blessing to be able to work with people who are capable of daring. On the day that our desires are not the same, we have to be honest about the separation.”
