Jeremy Saulnier Leaving True Detective

True Detective fans have been anticipating a redeeming third season for the crime thriller series after a rushed, disappointing second season couldn’t live up to the greatness of the first season, made great by the writing of Nic Pizzolatto and the direction of Cary Fukunaga. The hiring of Green Room and Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier gave us hope that True Detective would return to form, but it appears there may have been some trouble on set, resulting in the director leaving before finishing all his episodes.

True Detective season 3 cast

The third season of HBO’s True Detective has added another solid character actor to its ranks. A new report says that Scoot McNairy, a modern “that guy” who you’ve likely seen in a dozen things over the past few years, has joined Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali, Selma star Carmen Ejogo, and e-cigarette salesman Stephen Dorff for the newest season of the divisive crime drama.

True Detective Season 3 2019

I can’t think of a television show that’s experienced a drop in quality as drastic as the one that came between seasons one and two of HBO’s True Detective. But from what I can gather, the primary reason behind that plunge was because season two was rushed into production, and that certainly won’t be the case for True Detective season 3. HBO chief Casey Bloys just confirmed that the crime series will finally return to the network in 2019 – and while he was at it, he gave a new update about the long-awaited Deadwood movie, too.

True Detective season 3 is shaping up to be quite an impressive entry into the HBO crime anthology series. First the casting of Mahershala Ali brought back much of the goodwill that the prestige series lost during the sluggish second season, and now Ali has finally received his partner: Stephen Dorff.

Mahershala Ali in Talks to Star in True Detective Season 3

Update: HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys has confirmed that Mahershala Ali will star in True Detective season 3. No directors have been hired yet, but he has read the scripts for the first five episodes: “They are terrific. I was very impressed and excited. We are talking to directors, and when we have a director we want to hire, it will be a go.”

Our original story follows below.

The first season of True Detective was one of the most stunning pieces of prestige television in recent memory, featuring magnetic chemistry between leads Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and solidifying McConaugney’s rise as a serious actor (we can probably also thank the show for popularizing the “McConaissance”). That’s why the show’s fall from grace was all the more tragic during a confusing second season that squandered a talented cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn.

It seemed unlikely that True Detective could bring back the goodwill it had achieved in its first season, but the recent news that Mahershala Ali — fresh off an Oscar win for his profound turn in Moonlight — is in talks to star in the third season, might just do the trick.

true detective season 3

Like a decades-old murder case where the deranged killer was never caught, HBO’s True Detective won’t stay buried. While the show has been on indefinite hiatus since the end of its deeply unpopular second season, it sounds like the once-beloved anthology mystery show may be lurching back into life with the help of a television veteran responsible for some of the greatest shows of all time. Are you ready for True Detective season 3?

true detective season 3

While streaming services like Netflix and Amazon tend to grab all the headlines and dominate much of the modern discourse on the future of television, it’s sometimes remarkable how pop culture connoisseurs tend to stop in their tracks and pay attention whenever HBO, a member of the old TV guard if there ever was one, debuts a new show. Sometimes, that show is bad. Sometimes, that show is life-changing. Sometimes, as is the case with The Young Pope, that show is so peculiar that the internet simply doesn’t know what to make of it.

In short, I like to pay attention to what HBO is doing, so that means that I’m paying attention when their president of original programming talks about more True Detective, The Night Of, and Deadwood.
