Matthew McConaughey would come back for more True Detective

The future doesn't look bright for more seasons of TRUE DETECTIVE on HBO. After two very different seasons (the second of which was not as well-received as the first), it appears HBO is ready to move onto other things under Casey Bloys' reign as the cable network's new president of programming. But would things change if Matthew McConaughey said that he'd like to come back to the series and revisit the character of Rust Cohle? Because that's what he's expressing he might like to do. Hmmm... Talk about giving HBO something to think about...

In a recent interview on The Rich Eisen Show, McConaughey had nothing but fondness for the fictional guy he so desperately misses. 

Yeah, I would. I miss Rust Cohle, man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights. I miss watching True Detective on Sunday nights!

Y'know, I was a happy man when we made that (show) for six months, because I was on my own island. Luckily my wife put up with me...

But, yeah, I would. I've talked to Nic (Pizzolatto) about it, but it would have to be the right context, in the right way.

There is no question that, as good as Woody Harrelson was in that first season, it was McConaughey's performance that really made TRUE DETECTIVE a must-watch during its run. I have no idea where that character could possibly go next, but, based on McConaughey's performance on the series, I'd easily be willing to go along for the ride to find out if that was given the green light.

I loved the first season and Cary's infamous, seemingly one take tracking shot was pure cinematic genius. One of the best scenes and or sequences I have ever seen on TV and Film for that matter. Anyway... I know it's supposed to be an "anthology" series but I'd love for Matt and Woody to come back for a 3rd season and I'd love if they somehow tied season 2's events to a larger conspiracy involving then events from Season one.

I think what works in the first season was the subject matter, something that's so vile and wicked that the average people couldn't even begin to comprehend let alone confront so fiercely as our two detectives bravely did. I find that lacking in the second season, and with the cast increased in numbers so did its intimacy with the audience lessen. So if there ever will be a third season, even without McConaughey I would very much like the show to return to the more personal story of season 1

So if there ever will be a third season, even without McConaughey I would very much like the show to return to the more personal story of season 1 than the intricately woven web of intrigue that the second season was. Not that it was bad, it just doesn't have the same emotional impact as the first season.

I would love to see them find a way to make the first 2 seasons collide...especially with Mc Adams character essentially going on the run. I could see Rust and Marty working a tip down in Mexico, then that's when it all unfolds...

Well I'd watch the hell out of it. Here's hoping it happens.

I could go either way

In one way, the first season was amazing and the idea of seeing Rust and Marty return is exciting. On the other hand,where the characters ended was perfect. Catching up with them a few years later doesn't seem that interesting but if Cary returned I'd be down.

Season 1 is one of the best experiences I've ever had binge-watching a show. That one-shot during the raid on the house and the true side of the gun battle at the home of the killer are scenes I've watched again and again. As much as I'd love to see these characters again, their story seems so complete and ended on such a great note that maybe we shouldn't revisit them.
