True Detective show-runner and writer Nic Pizzolatto has shared a new nugget of info concerning the HBO show’s upcoming second season: this time around, expect three leads.
The calibre of the stars recruited for S1 – Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson – has encouraged fevered debate over who could (and who should) appear in the second season.
The knowledge that there are now three major parts to fill will no doubt add fuel to the fire.
Speaking on radio program To the Best of Our Knowledge, Pizzolatto also revealed more details about the setting of S2.
“It takes place in California — not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser known venues of California — and we’re going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.
“The characters are all new, but I’m deeply in love with each of them. We’ve got the entire series broken out with a couple of scripts, and we’ll probably start casting in earnest in the coming months.”
Jessica Chastain was rumoured to have secured one of those parts, but her representatives quickly shot down the speculation as groundless.
