“True Detective” might be one of the best shows to come out of 2014 and fans were excited at the idea that the show would continue on for a while. However, show creator Nic Pizzolatto seems to have different ideas.
He has already written several episodes for the second season and has said that he knows what he wants to do for the third but recently he told reporters that fans shouldn’t expect much more after that.
According to a report from the Calgary Herald, Pizzolatto spoke about the difficulties in making a new show every season,
“It can’t have any growing pains like a regular first season. If it works it has to work right out of the box. That’s incredibly exhausting. I mean, the job is exhausting to begin with, but it’s doubly exhausting and I’m writing every episode.”
What does this means for the show’s long-term future? He added,
I can’t imagine I would do this more than three years. I mean, I’d like to have a regular TV show. We’ll have some fixed sets, regular actors and I could bring in people to help and I don’ t have to be there every second. It’d be great.”
Regarding season two, we know will feature a completely different cast and setting from season one, we just don’t know who or what or where. Rumors have been swirling about the cast for weeks but all Pizzolatto has said is,
“I’ve talked to one person about it, possibly, and that has been it. We haven’t cast anybody. I have a secret list and that’s it.”
