HBO’s “True Detective” flirted with being a horror-themed show all season, and one can argue that that’s exactly what it was. One thing is certain… last night’s season finale would have even the most jaded of Texas Chain Saw Massacre fans drooling. Now, for Season 2, things may be getting a whole lot darker.
We know two things for sure about the show… each season will be a self-contained story, and Season 1 lead actors Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey won’t return.
So what’s next? During an interview with series creator Nic Pizzolatto, HitFix inquired about the direction next season will take.
“I realize I need to keep being strange. Don’t play the next one straight,” Pizzolatto said. “This is really early, but I’ll tell you [it’s about] hard women, bad men, and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”
Pizzolatto also went on to say that his prose is typically “populated with rich female characters,” so maybe we’ll be getting female detectives who will act as “mirrors to reflect some aspect of Rust (McConaughey) or Marty (Harrelson).”
Stay tuned, kids!
