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.

Jessica Chastain, True Detective
If there’s something the Internet loves it’s wishful thinking. And there’s a ton of wishful thinking going around the second season of “True Detective.” There’s been dumb, totally false and wrong rumors that Brad Pitt was going to co-star (ha, as if), and lately, there’s been word that Jessica Chastain got an offer to star in the second season of writer Nic Pizzolatto’s show (by now you've hopefully come to terms that Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey are not coming back either). And maybe Chastain did get an offer, but to prove the point why you should always temper that excitement, every major star always gets an offer for everything.

“Hard women, bad men, and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system” was the tease for season two that “True Detective” writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto gave the world after the much-lauded first season wrapped up and not too long before that, Pizzolatto took to twitter to hint at the idea of a female-led second season. However, the biggest question about the show’s future is who can HBO snag to replace the dream team of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Well, a new rumor has cropped up and at the very least it could point to how high the cable network is aiming.

True Detective, season finale
Okay, so we know all about The Yellow King and Carcosa, but it seems there's still more reason to keep talking about "True Detective." With the show an undeniable critical smash and audience hit, the next stop for program is on the awards trail, where it seems like a no-brainer for a slew of Emmy nominations. But in a challenge that would make Rust Cohle proud, HBO has made a decision that will add an extra obstacle to gathering up a sea of statues.

True Detective Hardy Boys
Yes, it's been a couple weeks now since we said goodbye to "True Detective," but the show is still inspiring all kinds of parodies and tributes. From the Batman-themed opening credits to the Seth Rogen and Patton Oswalt spoof to Martin Hart witnessing the Red Wedding, the Internet has had plenty of fun with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. And now another creative take on the show has landed.

True Detective Batman
No, we still haven't finished talking about the (sadly) finished “True Detective.” We plan to finish talking about it, oh, about a day before the second season starts airing, maybe? Maybe even later. And the rest of the internet is still with us on this one: they're still putting out various brilliant spoof videos, and here comes another one, featuring the truest detective of all: Batman.

The barbaric slaughterhouse we call life means "True Detective" is no more – at least not in the iteration that had Woody Harrelson, Mathew McConaughey and director Cary Fukunaga. That team will move on, but series creator/showrunner and main writer Nic Pizzolatto will be back. Read More »

True Detective
Let’s face it: you’re in “True Detective” withdrawal. You’ve watched the show once, watched it twice and you’re all out of internet theories and clues to look for. You don’t know what to do. Your head is not screwed on straight. You’re thinking human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. You’re worried that you’re absorbing dread with this self-fulfilling narrative of denial. You’re hoping and wishing for some sort of catharsis, but you realize “True Detective” is a virus that has rewritten the pathways to your brain and has dulled critical thinking.
