Colin Farrell is reportedly in talks to take one of the lead roles in the show’s second season. And Taylor Kitsch is also said to be “among the leading candidates” for the second male lead.  Read More »

true detective four leads

Who will be at the center of the second season of True Detective, and what sort of characters will they be? Creator Nic Pizzolatto has had a few different things to say since the show ended, notably that three characters would be at the center of this season. The sum total of various rumors so far, however, is… we don’t know much. Or we didn’t know.

Thanks to some new comments by the writer/producer, we now have a bit more info. While we don’t know if the gender balance of the show will shift at all, Pizzolatto now says plans for the next story arc have evolved somewhat, and that a quartet of characters will be at the center.

Oh, and you know that early report, that the show would be about “the secret occult history of the transportation system”? Yeah, that may not be the case any longer, either. Read More »

True Detective

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto is currently writing season 2, and is beginning to let the powers that be in on his vision for the next season. As we know, that vision won’t fit in with the season one story which starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Also unlike the first season, it probably won’t be directed by Cary Fukunaga, though we don’t know that for sure.

So while most of the discussion currently centers on which actors could appear in the new season, there’s an interesting development about who might be behind the camera. In a new interview, director William Friedkin confirmed he has met with Pizzolatto to discuss the series and is considering working on it. Does that mean he’ll be directing True Detective season 2? Read the quotes below and figure it out for yourself. Read More »

true-detective-5

Late last week, a big step was taken forward for True Detective season 2. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto reportedly turned in the script for the first episode of the new season, and the lead for this new storyline is not what we’d heard it might be. In the months since the first season finished, we’d heard rumors suggesting various new directions, from redoing the two-detective structure of the first season, to relying upon a more female-centric cast. Now, it turns out, at least the first episode just centers on one male lead. Read More »

Heroes Day meeting

Years have passed since Lost ended, and Damon Lindelof finally has a new TV show. That show is called The Leftovers, based on the book by series co-producer Tom Perrotta, and it premiered on HBO Sunday night.

In an instant, two percent of the world’s populate goes missing. The people who vanish have nothing in common. There’s no rhyme or reason, they’re just gone. Three years later, in a small New York town, we meet several characters still dealing with the emotional, spiritual and logistic effects of this unfathomable the event. And in classic Lindelof fashion, the first episode is scene after scene of intriguing mystery. Dozens of questions are posed, starting intriguing scenarios, introducing characters, and more. It was a polarizing, but in my mind fantastic start to what’s sure to be an interesting show.

Don’t have HBO? You can now watch the The Leftovers pilot for free online. Check it out below. Read More »

mcconaughey return True Detective

Not to get your hopes up too much, but the very positive reception for True Detective has changed the mind of one of its stars with respect to the idea of coming back. Matthew McConaughey once said he was attracted to True Detective because it was a “one and done” series. And we know that the second season will feature a trio of new leads, with the show built around new characters. But now McConaughey says he would be “open” to doing more.  Read More »
