Story details on season 2 of True Detective

05.27.2014

I've heard nothing but praise for True Detective (I'm getting around to it soon, believe you me), and despite the lack of an official HBO announcement (a formality, at this point) Season 2 is wasting no time gearing up for production. Since the series focuses on a new story and set of characters each season (similar to American Horror Story, minus the same casting), we've heard that the next season may feature female leads. Writer/Producer Nic Pizzolatto dropped a few more tidbits of information though, as far as what we can expect.

Here's a few location and plot details:

Right now, we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California and we’re going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambience of the place, much like we did with season one.

In regards to the characters and the casting:

The characters are all new, but I am deeply in love with all of them. We have the entire season broken out, and I have a couple of scripts, and we’ll probably start casting within the coming month.

It was disappointing to hear that Jessica Chastain would NOT be taking a role in the upcoming season, but given the critical acclaim of the show thus far, I'm sure they'll have no problem finding three great leads to captivate audiences. With casting happening within the next month, we should have more names to throw around in no time!

There are so many excellent shows on right now that it's hard to pick a favorite – House of Cards, Hannibal, Mad Men, Louie, Penny Dreadful, they're all great... but the one that towers above them all and has me hanging on every word is Game of Thrones.

So long as they get Alexandra Daddario back, even if she's not playing the same character.

Part of why season one was so great was due to the sense of focus that was brought in having one director and one writer for the entire show. Cary Fukunaga wont be back for season two, so I'm eager to hear who the next director will be. I hope they take the same approach and have only one director for the show like the first season.

2. season has a lot to live up to - but I'm sure I'll be satisfied when the new season comes around.
My favorite shows right now are Justified at first place followed by GoT, Fargo, Mad Men and re-watching Malcolm in the Middle. I fucking loved that show when I was young and it still holds up today - although I have a new perspective on some of the antics...

Game of Thrones, Person of Interest and Arrow. Sons of Anarchy used to be on this list but the last season was trash and I don't plan on watching the final season.

I'm sure whoever they choose to play the new detective leads in this new season will all be great and entertaining just like McConaughey and Harrelson were in the first season.

As for the tidbit, it's a four way tie between Mad Men, Justified, Sons of Anarchy, and Arrow.

Love GoT. I saw the first 5 or 6 episodes of Orphan Black and I found it to be a bit all over the place. Think I should stick it out to the end of the first season, given that?

shameless sean.
wow, you may be the first person i've run across who has watched as many as 6 episodes of orphan black and not been hook. so honestly i'd say no. don't bother watching. if you weren't sold after 6 you never will be. for me it's my favorite show on TV. GoT is a very close 2nd. i also have enjoyed in the flesh, divinci's demons, continuum, and the 100, as far as shows airing right now. 24 is a fun show too. but we are entering a TV dead zone now.

I actually like Orphan Black a lot. True that the plot can be all over the place sometimes but the lead actress, Ms. Tatiana (something), is very good at playing 4 different characters. That is quite something.

Sean Wist, I recommend watching the entire season and then skipping the finale. Just use your imagination. The finale was a huge let down.

Oh c'mon, there's no way I'd be able to skip the finale! I plan on tackling this show later this week, though.

That would be my personal favorite. 4 seasons in, and consistent as it ever was. Love it.

I would've loved Chastain in this. Too bad. My favorite show currently airing, Mad Men, hands down one of the best dramas of all time. Game of Thrones, too.

I've seen the first . . . 4 seasons, I believe? I really dig that show. I just haven't had a chance to catch up. I may just wait until the series is finished and start from scratch. I love watching shows in their entirety.
