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 »

The instant the credits rolled on the first season of True Detective, fans became rabid to learn about season two. We knew Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s characters wouldn’t be returning, so speculation began with who should star in the show. Then we learned the season would be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.” Now, a few more pieces of the puzzle have been revealed.
In a new interview, series writer and creator Nic Pizzolatto revealed True Detective season 2 would have three leads and be set in California. Read more of his quote below. Read More »

With most shows, fans can depend on the lead actors to come back season after season. But with an anthology series like True Detective, all bets are off. And so for the past several months, viewers have been speculating and fantasizing about who might fill Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson‘s shoes for True Detective Season 2.
Officially, HBO hasn’t said a single peep on that front. But unofficially, a new rumor has emerged saying Jessica Chastain has been offered a lead role. Too bad it has been quickly denied by camps on both sides of the process. Get the dirt after the jump.

True Detective is over, and no matter what you thought of the finale there’s a good chance you want more. The show’s grim atmosphere and stark philosophical musings are addictive, and the rhythms of Nic Pizzolatto‘s dialogue stick in the back of the brain. Trouble is, we don’t know when the second season will premiere, and no matter the air date, the next episodes won’t continue the story of Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rustin Cohle (Matthew McConaughey). So how about a True Detective deleted scene from the first season to help ease off that addiction?
This scene is interesting, too, because it is not some side note from the murder investigation that provided the spine for the first season. Rather this is a new character note, which is really where the show excelled. Below, you’ll see a sour note in the relationship between Cohle and his girlfriend Laurie (Elizabeth Reaser). You knew this was coming as soon as we first saw them together. Bide the time in the wait for blu and season 2 with the clip, below. Read More »
Nic Pizzolato has revealed a kernel of the central plot of True Detective season 2. The show’s writer and creator is doing interviews about Sunday’s HBO Go-crashing, season one finale. In one he mentioned the second season is still in the early planning stages, but it’ll be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.” Very interesting.
Below, read some more about that as well as Pizzolato’s thoughts on the season one finale – fan expectations, conspiracies and a comic book reference. Read More »
The True Detective finale airs this weekend and fans everywhere are on pins and needles waiting to see where creator Nic Pizzolatto and director Cary Joji Fukunaga will take us in the last hour.
