"True Detective" is coming back to life after a long debate about its future as HBO has reportedly signed a second writer to help pen the show's new episodes. In fact, it was mentioned that the first two episodes of the installment were already written and the composition of the rest of the chapters might already be underway.

After the long debate on the future of "True Detective," a new worthy update has finally surfaced claiming that HBO finally prioritized its mega-hit crime flick by giving it a new writer. The award-winning writer-producer and creator of "Deadwood," David Milch has reportedly joined the team of "True Detective" to back up Nic Pizzolatto in the creation of season 3's story.

However, sources revealed that Milch has tapped as a screenwriter only and not a showrunner which is a position that Nic Pizzolatto occupied in the first two seasons of "True Detective." The work of the duo is reportedly in the early stages but at least two episodes are already finished according to reports. HBO has not yet confirmed these updates and has not yet given a greenlight for "True Detective" season 3 but fans of the show are already expecting for the good news anytime soon.

Looking back at "True Detective's" history, the first installment served as the series' biggest break with multiple awards gained by the show. It also previously held HBO's record of most viewed freshman season of a series before "Westworld" grabbed the title. With an average of 12 million viewers tuned in every episode, it is not doubtful how the Matthew McConaughey-starred season became a big hit.

However, the second season of "True Detective" struggled in a way where some viewers then claimed that the installment was poorly written compared to the first one. After the relative drop in viewers' population, the chance of making the third installment has been blurry.

Furthermore, Nic Pizzolatto then was not sure of doing another installment as he is reportedly busy with an upcoming HBO series to be starred by Robert Downey Jr., "Perry Mason." Despite the hindrances, though, HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys, said last year that "True Detective" is not yet dead but the network does not have any take yet on doing another season.

With the latest updates, though, fans already have predictions on what may go down on the new season of "True Detective." Matthew McConaughey as well second season's lead actor, Colin Farrell, previously expressed their interest in doing another installment with the show. Robert Downey Jr. was even rumored to hop in the team to help boost the show's ratings. However, all of these still remain as speculations with HBO still keeping mum about their plans for "True Detective" season 3.
