Season 3 of HBO's TV series "True Detective" has not yet been confirmed but nor has it been announced to be canceled. Reports have been in flip-flop mode regarding the fate of this TV show and fans are just left to wonder if they can get another season of the hit crime drama.
According to a report, HBO programming boss, Casey Bloy has already given a statement regarding the fate of the TV series during a Television Critics Association press tour. Though it is definitely not a sure thing, there is definitely a chance that "True Detective" could make another run with a third season. Here is what he had to say:
"It is not dead. I talked to Nic about it and both Nic and HBO are open to another season. I don't think Nic has a take and he's working on some other projects. We're open to somebody else writing it and Nic supervising it. It's a valuable franchise, it's not dead, we just don't have a take for a third season yet."
That should be enough to give die-hard fans even a glimmer of hope regarding the matter.
But the truth is, with a critically panned second season, it would be an uphill battle for the TV series to get a third season in the works. Add the fact that the HBO network has been quiet about the show's status this late in the year makes the odds of the show's return quite low.
Another thing that could hinder the show is Nic Pizzolatto, who is currently making a new TV series about popular TV lawyer Perry Mason. The show will star Hollywood A-Lister, Robert Downey Jr., and it is a no-brainer to suggest that the show creator will focus all his attention on "Iron Man."
Looks like fans of "True Detective" should hold their breath and hope that season 3 is still a possibility.
