Creator Nic Pizzolatto has revealed a setting and more for the second season of his superlative True Detective...

True Detective is moving north west from the Louisiana swamps for its second season, which will take place in California according to creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto. Don't expect the sterile glamour of LA though, says Pizzolatto, the crime mystery won't be set in "Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California". 

Speaking with the To The Best Of Our Knowledge podcast, he added, "We're going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambience of the place, much like we did with season one". What will said psychosphere smell like, we wonder.

Pizzolatto also revealed that the new season will have not two, but three leads. It was previously rumoured that the second run would feature two women detectives (leading to another, now debunked, rumour that Jessica Chastain had been approached for a role), but no more information was forthcoming on that front. To compete with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey though, those three leads are going to have to be something special.
