True Detective has lost a leader. Variety reports director Jeremy Saulnier has left the HBO TV show’s third season after two episodes.
As reported earlier, the new season of the anthology drama will center on “a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.” The cast includes Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Jon Tenney, Ray Fisher, Michael Greyeyes, Sarah Gadon, Emily Nelson, and Rhys Wakefield.
Saulnier, who has completed the first two episodes of True Detective‘s third season, has departed the HBO series due to scheduling conflicts. In his stead, Daniel Sackheim will alternate directing the remaining six episodes with creator Nic Pizzolatto.
No premiere date has been announced yet.
