Is it just us or is trying to find Season 2 scoop on “True Detective” more difficult than figuring out who the Yellow King was? Ever since the hit HBO anthology aired its season finale, fans of the show have taken to their basement -- à la Rust Cohle -- hoping to connect the dots of what could possibly go down in the sophomore series of Nic Pizzolatto’s drama.
But all viewers have concocted is a sticky web of rumors. And we have to say, Marty Hart would be pretty disappointed, guys. Names like Jessica Chastain and Brad Pitt have been thrown into the murky “True Detective” pool of celebrities who might star in the upcoming anthology and while that sounds exciting, it’s nearly impossible considering Pizzolatto hasn’t even started casting yet!
“We'll probably start casting within the coming month,” the show runner said during an interview with the podcast “To the Best of Our Knowledge.”
And that wasn’t the only detail he gave fans regarding Season 2. Pizzolatto did us one better when he revealed the changes he was making to the new season of “True Detective.” Want a hint? Say sayonara, Louisiana!
“It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California and we're going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did with Season 1,” he explained.
The upcoming anthology will also vary from Season 1 as it features three leads instead of 2.
"Right now, we're working with three leads," Pizzolatto officially confirmed.
Prior to this announcement, the director made is known that he wanted Season 2 to focus around the storyline of “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.” Interesting!
