True Detective could return for third season

Cult HBO series True Detective could be set to return for a third season, according to reports.

The show was a huge hit when its first season aired in 2014 with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the lead roles. However, its second season was panned by the critics, with a cast of new characters and actors including Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn.

Entertainment Weekly now reports that the show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto has “penned at least the first two episodes” for a potential third season, with Deadwood producer David Milch reportedly “coming on board”.

However, the report adds: “The extent of Pizzolatto and Milch’s collaboration is still early days and not yet formalized,” continuing: “A third season has also not yet been greenlit, so new episodes are far from certain.”

McConaughey said last year that he wouldn’t “hesitate for a second” to sign up for season three of True Detective. The actor previously said that he “misses” his character.

HBO’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, has also renewed hopes of a third season, saying that the show is “not dead”.
