HBO Boss Discusses a Third Season for 'True Detective'
Plenty has been said in the year since True Detective's follow-up season met abysmal reaction from critics and fans following its ground-breaking debut. Very little has been heard from creator Nic Pizzolatto, either, and rumours have swirled recently that the series will probably end at two seasons.
Head of programming at HBO Casey Bloys however says that "it's not dead."
“We are hoping for third season. It’s a very valuable franchise for us.” PIzzolatto has an overall deal with HBO, and has been working on other projects, Bloys said. A third season would likely have someone else penning.
“I’m not sure we have the right take for a third season yet," he adds, to temper expectations.
