True Detective Season 3 News: The hopes around American anthology crime drama television series True Detective season 3 may well and truly be alive after all after HBO announced that the crime drama series will most probably return for a third instalment, even though an exact date of airing hasn’t been disclosed remotely as showrunner Nic Pizzolatto is reportedly busy with other projects? Also, Academy Award winner Mathew McConaughey was caught in talks with the Pizzolatto a few days back and we might very well come to the conclusion that the ‘Dallas Buyer’s Club’ star might make a comeback to the popular crime series and help it regain back some of it’s lost glory from the second season.
Whether that is gonna happen or not is what is left to be found out.
The first season of True Detective starring McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Michelle Monaghan, Michael Potts, and Tory Kittles was a phenomenal success earning a huge amount of critical acclaim from a widespread audience. It was nominated for and won numerous awards and other accolades, chiefly for its acting, cinematography, writing, and direction.
Viewership dropped, however, in the second season of the crime series, which had an equally impressive cast line-up including Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Vince Vaughn.
In July 2016, HBO head of programming Casey Bloys confirmed plans for a potential third season.
“It is not dead. I talked to Nic about it and both Nic and HBO are open to another season. I don’t think Nic has a take and he’s working on some other projects. We’re open to somebody else writing it and Nic supervising it. It’s a valuable franchise, it’s not dead, we just don’t have a take for a third season yet.”
-Casey Bloys, HBO head of Programming
Talks came out that the delay of the show’s production is due to Nic Pizzolatto’s reported new project, which is a reboot of the legal drama series “Perry Mason.” According to reports, this new show will star Robert Downey Jr., who expressed his desire to go back on small screen to play the titular character created by Erle Stanley Gardner.
As of now, there is very scarce information regarding the return of True Detective Season 3 in spite of talks of a renewal by HBO. McConaughey’s return was ruled out substantially before but a recent press conference saw him tell a reporter that he is reportedly interested in doing TV shows and that might just be enough for True Detective fans to jump up to the possibility of his return. However, all of this is still a speculation as even if the show returns for a third season, it won’t be anytime before 2018.
Let’s hope things change by that time and we get to see Detective Rustin “Rust” Cohle solve crimes in his gutsy way again in the upcoming True Detective Season 3.
UPDATE: True Detective Season 3 is all set for renewal as the official news comes from HBOs Television Critic Association press meet where they conveyed the message as the following series was definitely under the procedure for renewal with 100% possibility. Creator and Showrunner Nic Pizzolatto is trying level best to fulfil other basic requirements for his lucrative project. The upcoming series will continue with some old stubborn perseverance along with opposite taking an opposite take of quiet, non-related deaths.
