Yesterday, Deadline reported HBO has given True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto an overall deal through 2018. Per Deadline that deal could involve a season three renewal for the in-limbo series, but True Detective could also end up cancelled after only two seasons. The second season cast of True Detective anthology series includes: Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Vince Vaughn.
Variety provides additional details about a possible third season for True Detective:
Sources say HBO has been looking to make a change in the way the show is run, given the critical response to the second season, and has presented Pizzolatto with a number of options. Those options include: him working with a staff of writers, having a new showrunner come in, as well as him going it alone again. In all scenarios, he would remain an exec producer.
Sources say HBO has been pressing Pizzolatto for an answer so they can move forward with production on the show.
