True Detective Season 2 cast to be announced next week?

By Cian Gaffney on Jul 10, 2014 to True Detective


As if the amazing plethora of 20 HBO Emmy nominations (including True Detective‘s own McConaughey and Harrelson) wasn’t enough good news, we have more.

Earlier today at the Television Critics Association press tour, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said of True Detective Season 2;

“The two scripts we have… I hate to jinx it… they are more exciting than the first season. [Creator Nic Pizzolatto] is an incredibly talented writer. And he’s blown us away with the first two episodes.”

On top of that, he confirmed that casting announcements could come as soon as next week.

Teasing that we might be seeing some well-known faces next season, Lombardo said:

“The people we will cast will be well-known names, but [casting stars] wasn’t our ambition. Great writing attracts great actors… Maybe people initially came for [Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson], but I think they stayed because the show was so compelling.”

We’ll bring you more news on True Detective Season 2, and all things HBO, as soon as we have it.

    What kind of timing are we talking about for the second season? By the looks of it, we won’t be getting a season two until January 2016?

      You can be sure HBO wants it as soon as they can get it. Will it be ready by January of 2015? I am thinking they could run it tandem with GAME OF THRONES in the Spring, but I don’t think they should shoot their wad all at one time.

    I have an upcoming piece on TRUE DETECTIVE coming up soon myself.
