Here's what we know so far about the developing second season of "True Detective": it's about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system"; it'll probably have more than one director; and sorry, it won't feature Jessica Chastain. But writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto has shared a few more details about what's coming from the hottest show in television.

True Detective

Here's what we know so far about the developing second season of "True Detective": it's about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system"; it'll probably have more than one director; and sorry, it won't feature Jessica Chastain. But writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto has shared a few more details about what's coming from the hottest show in television.

Dropping by To The Best Of Our Knowledge podcast, he revealed the setting of the show and a new tidbit about the characters driving the next mystery. “Right now, we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California and we’re going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambience of the place, much like we did with season one," Pizzolatto said.

"The characters are all new, but I am deeply in love with all of them," he continued. "We have the entire season broken out, and I have a couple of scripts, and we’ll probably start casting within the coming month."

So yes, color us very, very excited about this. But don't be too bummed about no more Rust and Marty. Pizzolatto has previously stated we could see more adventures from the duo in book form sometime down the line, an intriguing prospect indeed, even we have to imagine the voices of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson sniping at each other.

If time is indeed a flat circle, this is a show we're certainly glad to see come back around in whatever shape it takes. [via Warming Glow]
