It looks like HBO is finally moving forward with True Detective Season 3. I'm a big fan of this dark and gritty drama anthology series, and it'll be interesting to see what creator Nic Pizzolatto does next with it. According to Variety, Deadwood creator David Milch is working with Pizzolatto on the series and they are currently in the early process of writing the script.
When previously talking about the possibility of a third season, HBO's former president of programming, Michael Lombardo, said:
"I'd love to do another season. I haven't asked every one of the 12 million viewers who is watching, but I think what he's doing is so much bolder, braver and satisfying that what I'm seeing in film. I'd happily be in business with him for a long time."
It's been almost two years since the second season was released, which starred Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Rachel McAdams. It wasn't met with the best reviews, but I still enjoyed watching it. It definitely wasn't the same caliber as Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson's Season 1, though.
I'm happy that HBO is giving the series a third shot to tell another compelling story. I think with Milch and Pizzolatto working on the next season together, we'll get something completely unexpected that's going to turn out great.
