'True Detective' Season 3 Update: HBO Says Series Is Not Yet Dead; Nic Pizzolatto Still Willing To Write Third Season
Fans of HBO's crime drama "True Detective" are still waiting for the show's return on TV. Previous reports saying that season 2 received less-than-stellar ratings became the basis of rumors that the show is not coming back for a third season.
However, followers of the show may now rest their worries as HBO and series creator Nic Pizzolatto are reportedly talking about the show's renewal. Both camps, however, have not given any specific details yet about "True Detective" season 3.
HBO's Hit Crime Drama Series
"True Detective" is arguably one of the notable shows of HBO. The anthology crime drama series' first season even earned outstanding ratings and reviews, winning several Emmy nominations for the superb performances of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as well as for the show's creator, Pizzolatto. Hence, people's reception of "True Detective" season 2 came as a shock as it received only fair ratings, with critics saying it was not as good as it claimed to be.
The show's performance for the second season then ignited talks that it will no longer be renewed by HBO for a third season. But while cancellation rumors are rife, fans should now feel relieved as the new programming chief of HBO, Casey Bloys, told the press panel that the show "is not dead." He also said that the network and Pizzolatto already talked, and both are willing to work on another season.
Reasons For "True Detective" Season 3 Delay
Talks came out that the delay of the show's production is due to Pizzolatto's reported new project, which is a reboot of the legal drama series "Perry Mason." According to reports, this new show will star Robert Downey Jr., who expressed his desire to go back on small screen to play the titular character created by Erle Stanley Gardner.
With "True Detective" and "Perry Mason" having similar setups (referring to crime themes), fans are now speculating that the latter is actually a reboot of the former.
Since the plans for "True Detective" season 3 are still raw, fans might have to wait a little bit longer as rumors have it that the show might be aired in 2018.
