Creator Nic Pizzolatto To Revive 'True Detective' For Third Season


After two highly successful seasons, HBO's anthology crime drama series "True Detective" may be gearing for the third edition. Nic Pizzolatto, the creator and writer of the first two seasons, may have written the first two episodes of the potential third season and is in talks to revive it.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Emmy award winner David Milch, who wrote acclaimed dramas like "NYPD Blue" and "Deadwood" may be coming aboard to work with Pizzolatto, although nothing has been confirmed yet.

The Hollywood Reporter stated since the end of the not-so-critically-acclaimed second season starring Collin Farrell and Rachel McAdams, the news of the potential third season has been speculating with no sign of proof. And it is also unclear whether Nic will produce the series. Last year, Casey Bloys, HBO head of programming, stated that both Nic and HBO are open for another season, but she doesn't think Nic can take it right now as he is working on some other projects.

"We are open to anyone else writing it and Nic supervising it. It's a valuable franchise, which is certainly not dead. We just don't have a take for another season yet," said Bloys. Recently, actor Matthew McConaughey, who portrayed the role of a homicide detective Rust Cohle in the first season, announced that he would love to reprise his role, reports NY Daily News.

As for Milch, this collaboration will continue his long lasting relationship with HBO, after working with them on "NYPD Blue", "Hill Street Blues" and "Luck". "True Detective" was first released in 2014 starring McConaughey and Woody Harrison, which garnered immense critical acclaim and enjoyed a huge fan following. However, it was followed by a disappointing sophomore season in 2015. It would be very interesting to witness a third season of the famous detective saga, provided that it doesn't go the same way as the last season.
