True Detective wrapped season two on HBO earlier this year, and now fans are wondering about the future of the series. Will the series return for a third season on the cable network?
HBO has not yet made a decision about True Detective, but Cary Fukunaga told Digital Spy that he would not return for season three. He was the man in charge of season one, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
In fact, Fukunaga said that he has not even watched season two yet. He said:
“I had never planned on doing season two. I don’t even think I realized how much work season one would be. But I try not to do the same thing twice. And I definitely would never have done two seasons of the same show. That’s far too big of a commitment. After season one was done, I was very happy to move on, back to feature film and a completely different world to immerse myself in. And whatever I do next, hopefully, will feel just as different as anything I’ve ever done before.”
As for season two, he did say that it was “set up for far too high expectations.” The second season did not perform as well as the first.

Season One: Definitely one of the best series I have ever seen.Season Two very disappointing. I still would like to see a season 3 and give Pizzolatto another chance. I’d like to see Brad Pitt as a detective, and maybe pair him with Tory Kittles and continue the story of Season One as new evidence comes up to continue the search. As Cohle said “We didn’t get them all”. Perhaps McConaughey in one or two shows as an older man appropriate to the time lapse who gives what evidence or wisdom he can. Woody Harrelson too. Sort of cameo roles..… Read more »
Yes. Bring it back. Both were different but done excellently and kept my interest!
I’m curious to see what a 3rd season would look like. I loved season 1 Rustin was auch an awesome character loved the existentialism undertones. Wasn’t so impressed with season 2 I felt there was too much going on but I did like the way all the characters were somehow interconnected in the end and “chosen” to take the fall based on their interconnected’ness. Please bring nack season 3 !
