A third season of ‘True Detective’ is being dreamed up right now by Nic Pizzolatto and ‘Deadwood’ creator David Milch…
Time really is a flat circle after all.
Nearly two years after ‘True Detective’ season 2 wrapped up with no indication on whether or not there would be a third season, new life has been injected into the anthology series.
‘True Detective’ creator Nic Pizzolatto has teamed up with ‘Deadwood’ creator David Milch to begin work on a potential third season of the show. HBO still hasn’t given the green light for ‘True Detective’ season 3 but it certainly appears likely the show will return one day soon.
Pizzolatto and Milch have reportedly already written a start to the third season of ‘True Detective’ with more work to come in the near future as they look to receive a full episode order from HBO.
When ‘True Detective’ first debuted, the show was hailed as a critical and commercial success with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson both receiving numerous award nominations for work on the show. Unfortunately, ‘True Detective’ season 2 didn’t find nearly as much success with a maligned sophomore effort starring Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams.
The series then fell into limbo with no official word from HBO whether or not the series would return again.
Now it appears ‘True Detective’ is getting back on track with Milch on board as a writer for the series.
Milch is a highly regarded writer who has worked on ‘Hillstreet Blues’ as well as serving as creator on ‘Deadwood’ as well as co-creator on ‘NYPD Blue’.
While there’s no details on the story for ‘True Detective’ season 3, McConaughey has said he would be interested in returning to the series to reprise his role of Detective Rust Cohle but there’s no word on whether or not the new story being cooked up by Pizzolatto and Milch would include him.
