‘True Detective’: Where Things Stand with Season 2

Now that the mystery of the Yellow King is solved, “True Detective” fans are turning their attention to figuring out the path for the show’s journey to season two.

At present, creator Nic Pizzolatto is said to be hunkered down writing scripts for the second season at his home in a picturesque area of Ventura County.

HBO execs have said they intend to order a second season of the anthology series, which will return with new characters and a new mystery to unravel. Speculation about the possible casting for the next batch of episodes is running rampant online, but those in the know say the plan is to wait until a script or two is completed before going out to actors.

As for the focus of the second season, Pizzolatto has been mostly mum but he dropped a good-sized hint in an interview following Sunday’s finale with Hitfix’s Alan Sepinwall. 

“This is really early, but I’ll tell you (it’s about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system,” he told Hitfix.

Pizzolatto and execs at HBO and Anonymous Content, which co-produced the series with HBO, are expected to powwow this week to hammer out more details.
