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.
But writer-producer Nic Pizzolatto told public radio program To the Best of Our Knowledge on Tuesday that: “Right now, we’re working with three leads. 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,” he said.
Three leads. Three! That leaves so much more room for postulating.
A #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag is currently trending on Twitter that is full of incredible casting suggestions. Here are our favorites:
