'True Detective' Season 3 Cast Rumors: Matthew McConaughey And Robert Downey Jr. In Talks To Save Show's Ratings?
"True Detective" season 3 is still being haunted by the supposed underperformance of its previous season. With the disappointment of fans about the arguably low quality of plotline that the sophomore season delivered which led to its low ratings, rumors about signing ex-cast Matthew McConaughey and A-lister Robert Downey, Jr. have surfaced.
HBO head Casey Bloys has recently hinted on the network's plan to renew "True Detective" for season 3. Although the series creator already opted out, HBO has re-signed writer Nic Pizzolatto until 2018. This can be taken as a good sign for the series. However, Pizzolatto is reportedly busy with another HBO series where Downey is also rumored to star.
While the show has not yet received its green light, fans are now waiting for updates as they firmly believe that the crime drama is still coming back for its third installment which is expected to premiere in 2018. Yet to avoid the low ratings that the second season suffered from, the team is now rumored to be in talks with the "Iron Man" star, Downey Jr., and ex-lead star of the series, McConaughey.
The Struggle Of "True Detective" Season 2
"True Detective" in its first season quickly became a fan-favorite HBO show. It has been declared as the most viewed TV series in HBO history for a first season release. It has impressed millions of viewers and even nabbed individual several awards including the Outstanding Drama series award during the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards and the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for McConaughey. These are said to be the things that the sophomore season failed to achieve despite the powerhouse cast of Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Colin Farrell.
McConaughey And Downey Jr. Collab For "True Detective" Season 3
Following the scenario, fans suggest that the award-winning actor McConaughey be re-signed to star in the upcoming third season. According to reports, this can be possible since the actor previously shared how he was missing working for the series. McConaughey in his interview with "Rich Eisen Show" said, "I miss Rust Cohle, man...I miss watching him on Sunday nights." He went on with his statement saying, "I was a happy man when I made that for six months, because I was on my own island."
McConaughey's enthusiasm might have given a new hope for the show but nothing is being announced about his possible comeback until now. Downey Jr., who was previously reported working on a new series with Pizzolatto, is also rumored to join "True Detective" season 3. The link between the actor and the writer is sparking theories that Pizzolatto might take Downey to again work with him for "True Detective." Yet like McConaughey's casting, the participation of the "Sherlock Holmes" lead star also remains a theory, at least for now.
