‘True Detective’ Creator Doesn’t See the Show Lasting Longer than 3 Seasons

Project Casting

The creator of HBO’s hit crime drama, “True Detective” says fans should not too attached to the series.

“Each season I’m essentially creating a brand-new TV show and it can’t have any growing pains like a regular first season. It has to work right out of the box and that’s incredibly exhausting,” Nic Pizzolatto said in an interview Wednesday at the Banff World Media Festival.

“I’m writing every episode so I can’t imagine I would do this more than three years. I’d like to have a regular TV show with fixed sets and regular actors,” he said.

The first season featured Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, both executive producers in the HBO crime drama, and centered on two Louisiana Police detectives investigating a serial killer over 17 years.

Nic Pizzolatto said he’s written two scripts for season 2.

But, he also revealed that all the casting rumors are false. “Not a single rumour about casting that has been printed anywhere has any truth to it whatsoever. I’ve seen entertainment reporters say ‘my sources say’ and there are no sources. There’s me and two other guys and they don’t even know what I’m doing,” he said.

“We haven’t approached anybody yet. When I get back we’re going to be meeting with directors and get the casting process into full gear,” said Pizzolatto.

“We have four primary POV (point of view) roles we will really need to focus on and once those are in place we’ll know the shooting schedule for sure. Right now we’re planning to start in the fall.”

“I’m not going to allow that sort of speculation to influence the way I work, and at the same time in order to work the way I work I cannot be engaging total strangers on the Internet to explain my work to them. I even kind of think it denigrates the work a little bit.”

Matthew McConaughey recently commented that he is open to being a part of “True Detective” again.

I liked True Detective, the whole series and the experience of making it, so much that I’d be open to doing another one now. At the time, I was looking at six months and not beyond that. I don’t know of a feature film I’d sign for where I’m going to say, “If this works, you’ve got me whenever you want me for the next three years.” (Via)
