'True Detective' Season 3 Updates: Director Cary Fukunaga Shows No Interest To Make Another Season; HBO Remains Open For Series Renewal
HBO recently expressed its hopes to renew "True Detective" for season 3. Unfortunately, director Cary Fukunaga shows no interest to make season 3. The show's creator recently confirmed that he will no longer handle the project if it indeed happens that HBO will push through with its plans of making "True Detective" season 3.
Fukunaga was one of the many reasons why "True Detective" became a global hit series. His directorial stint has made the first installment a mega hit which even earned the show several Emmy nominations. In fact, Fukunaga won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for the said season. However, "True Detective" season 2 showed the opposite as it suffered from poor ratings. The installment was also criticized to be poorly written. This is being speculated as one of the reasons why Fukunaga opted out on season 3.
With the speculations swirling, the director previously shed some light on the rumors and explained: "I had only signed on to do the first season because I wanted to do a long format, wanted to experiment with that genre. But I don't see myself going back to 'True Detective' anytime soon." He then added, "I feel like I have done the noir. There is no noir currently in my slate so if I ever get that itch again, may be. But not for now." The director then made it clear with his statements that the chance are frail that he will return to direct "True Detective" season 3.
Meanwhile, HBO's programming head, Casey Bloys, previously hinted the return of "True Detective" though the plans for it are still raw. He also teased Nic Pizzolatto's return to continue writing the story of "True Detective."
No official announcements have yet been made by HBO regarding "True Detective" season 3. However, fans can still be hopeful as cancelation is still far from the network's plan for the series.
