Hope has not faded for “True Detective” as it has been given a lease on life of some sort by HBO. Read On!
Nic Pizzolatto, the showrunner of the crime drama, has recently cut a deal with the premiere cable network albeit a third installment of “True Detective” is still to be a settled agreement, TV Line reports. Pizzolatto’s fresh stipulation demands the 40-year-old screenwriter to brew other ventures from his storyboard until 2018. With the creator in full swing for original ideas, it looks like the third season of his hit-and-now-miss series will have to take a step aside.
However, HBO still wants to give “True Detective” another crack as it has included some house rules prior to the series being green-lit for another season. The network now takes into consideration the misfortune brought-up by the season 2, and wants to take critical alterations on how the show will be handled. “The Magnificent Seven” writer will now be limited to his past role as an executive producer as HBO will take-in a bunch of writers and another outsider who will now act as a showrunner.
Michael Lombardo revealed his enthusiasm in their reunion, “I am thrilled to continue our relationship with Nic, as he is one of the most exceptionally talented writers and producers working today.”
“I look forward to seeing where his unique creative vision will take us next.”
The inaugural season of “True Detective” which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson had its viewers in a state of high anticipation as it became a critical success story for Pizzolatto. The second outing, as explained in The Christian Science Monitor, failed to spark the same feat. Blame it to a certain extent that it now presented new story arc and new cast members due to its anthology presentation.
Season 1 garnered a projected 11.9 million viewers, while Season 2 dropped to 11. 3 million viewers.
