In case you’ve been away from your Twitter, you’ll be surprised to learn that there is a whole new round of speculation regarding casting choices for season two of HBO’s True Detective.

Fans earlier created a #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag for casting suggestions, assuming that the crime drama would again revolve around two leads, as it did last season with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
