    'True Detective' on HBO: Season 2

    As someone mentioned, we know from a very recent interview with Pizzolatto that Season 2 will be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system...". We pretty much know for sure that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will not be back. But this interview dates back to February 4th. I've been holding back for a while. Here it is.

    Is it hard writing the second season after putting everything and the kitchen sink into the first?
    Now I feel like I’m in a really sweet spot where I can really go nuts. Like, I bought myself some credibility. One of my goals for Season Two is more authentic, faster—and stranger. It’s going to get stranger.
    I’ll be honest, though: if I get to do this two more times, I could see calling it a day. Because I basically have to reinvent the wheel every new season. Every first episode is a pilot. I’ve got to win people over again.
    Has it been challenging to create a new character who can stand toe to toe with Cohle?
    I got him.
    You do?
    That’s when I start to know when I’m off to the races—when I’m in love again. And it’s not in love with an idea. I’m in love with a character. A character just did something on a page that made me sit up and go, “Now you’re becoming a dimensional human being to me, and I’m interested.”
    When did that happen with Cohle?
    With Cohle it happened almost instantly, when I was writing his voice. He was describing that crime scene and what they found, and I’m going along with him. And then his partner decides, for whatever reason, that this is a good time to invite him to dinner. And then the voice tells me that he says “OK.” But he’s thinking about his own daughter, and Hart’s wife and kids, and he knows maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but there’s nothing he can do: “I’m gonna have a drink.” And I remember writing that freehand and going, “OK. Interested in YOU.” I’ll let this guy keep talking and see what else he tells me.
    Tell me about the character you’re excited about for Season Two.
    I’ve got three characters I like, actually.
    And they’re nothing like Rust Cohle?
    Nothing. I’ve been told not to reveal anything else about Season Two because none of this is approved. I might hand it in to my paymasters and they’ll be like, “What the hell is this?”
    I have lived for two years with this show. Now that it’s out, I’m able to look back on and think, “God that was crazy. What was I thinking?” If I had know the sheer amount of work that would have been entailed, I would have been like, “Fuck yeah, I need a couple of other writers, a good supervising producer, I need this, I need that…”
    And yet you’re doing it the same way again.
    Yeah, because I have to live up to Season One. Because people liked it. It would be a different story if nobody had noticed True Detective, or if it just had a small cult following. But in order to make the second season as full and dense and rich as the first … I don’t know any other way to do it. So I think I’m going to have to do it again.

    That's pretty great stuff. I hope he's right, and I'm intrigued by the idea of "hard women." The fact that powerful women are becoming a part of every day culture is awesome to me.

    Looks like we'll be getting two female cops for the next one.

    The hunt for a new pair of True Detectives is on after Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson confirmed they would not be back for season 2, with Brad Pitt being one of the names in the frame.

    The role is one of the most coveted in Hollywood thanks to the success and scope of the HBO drama, which will start afresh with a new case and new police investigators for its second outing.

    According to Hollywood Life: "Brad’s name has come up many times, it’s just a matter of what his other commitments are.

    "Brad has tight relations with HBO — he teamed up with Ryan Murphy last year to produce the HBO movie The Normal Heart. I know everyone would be thrilled to have him onboard."
    We may now actually find out WHAT'S IN THE BOX

    This might be out of left field, but I think Keanu Reeves would be perfect for a True Detective role. He fits that MM type perfectly.

    ...

    Recent rumors have stated series creator Nic Pizzolatto was seeking a female-driven cast for Season 2 of the hit HBO series, and now today, Nerdist has learned exclusively one of the names that may be on the bill in 2015: Jessica Chastain.

    I just don't think female leads can come anywhere close to what MM and WH did last season. If it wasn't as good, I would be excited.

    I doubt you could find many male leads that could better or even replicate what you had last season. My take is you have to go into this expecting something brand new, or you're going to be disappointed before it even starts.

    Yea I feel you, I have a lot of faith in the writing. The same story angle would actually be really interesting from a female perspective
