True Detective season 2 details

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.

Very intrigued. I thought it was a given that season 2 was gonna be set in SF but a lesser known city or town sounds just as good to me. I hope the transportation board plot is still gonna be in it. I thought that sounded very original. Shame Jessica Chastain wasn't actually cast though. But anyway I don't think casting is the biggest issue here. Nick Pizzolatto could cast Seth Rogen, Vince Vaugh and Ben Stiller and it'd still be amazing.

Ha ha, sounds good. I'd also like to see the version with Stallone, Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

I loved first season, it would be nice if they can get hollywood A list actors for each season

Great show - I hope they retain the weird fiction tone.

Would be great if they got brad Pitt and Morgan freeman together and kinda remade 7

Given how the female characters were largely portrayed (victim/sex worker/mistress/bitter ex-wife) in the first series, I hope the show goes to some lengths to redress the balance and show us capable, authoritative and generally more realistic female characters.

what's in the box?!

Indeed, did you ever watch on youtube how it should have ended, brilliant

the Thom Yorke ending?

just watched the original ending. sent chills down my spine. guess it's been some 10 years since i've watched it. it's time for another go
