The critically acclaimed HBO drama, True Detective should begin filming the second season this September in California. The first season was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who was nominated for a directing Emmy this year for True Detective. However HBO programming president, Michael Lombardo, says the second season’s needs will be met by multiple administrators. Lombardo said at the Guardian International Television Festival in Edinburgh that the second season won’t be as dark as the first. “It’s still dark,” said Lombardo. “It’s not as dark, but it’s not a light ride. Nic likes looking into the crevices of the soul.”
Season two will showcase a new cast and story, driven by three cops- one woman and two men, said Lombardo, according to HuffPost UK and Variety. HBO hasn’t confirmed the cast for the new season, but it is rumored Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Elizabeth Moss and Taylor Kitsch are amongst potential actors to fill these roles.
True Detective won two Prime Time Emmys: Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series and Outstanding Main Title Design. It was nominated for six other Emmys. Both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson were nominated for Lead Actor in a Drama.
