True Detective Season 2 Pairings: Twitter Speaks, Everyone Wins

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A pair of Perfect Strangers? Reunited twins? Former ice skating foes turned friends?

With True Detective Season 1 earning rave reviews and accolades for stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, buzz is already building toward True Detective Season 2.

Granted, HBO is yet to officially order new episodes of this unique drama... but it's a safer bet than Bryan Cranston winning Best Actor at the 2014 Emmys.

And with the unusual set up of this anthology series, two new stars will be cast to lead the upcoming season.

What will be the premise? Where will it be set? Heck, will it even feature two detectives again? No one knows.

Thanks to #TrueDetectiveSeason2 trending on Twitter, however, fans have some totally awesome ideas for who should be take on the main roles. Are you listening, HBO?

Zack Morris, AC Slater and Screech
With Mr. Belding as caption? And The Max as the precinct? Who is not tuning in for this?!?

Who is your favorite tandem from this group? And who would you cast on True Detective Season 2?

NOTE: We've updated this photo gallery to reflect the fact that showrunner Nic Pizzolatto says Season 2 will feature THREE leads.

YES! Gary Cole and Christine Baranski!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Love True Detective! If hope they find a good story with female protagonists for Season 2. I'd like to see Sandra Oh star along with Naomi Watts, Christina Hendricks, or one of the actresses on Breaking Bad, the ones who portrayed Lydia and Jane.


Timothy Olyphant & the actor who plays Boyd on "FX" greatest show ever, "Justified". I think they would rock "True Detective", on the same level as Woody & Matthew, who were awesome.😊


How about the pair from "Terriers". They were killed off way too soon.


stupid, not funny

True Detective Quotes

Martin: You wonder ever if you're a bad man?
Rust: No I don't wonder Marty. The world needs bad men. We keep the other bad men from the door.

The hubris it must take to yank a soul out of non existence, into this, meat. And to force a life into this, thresher. Yeah so my daughter, she uh, she spared me the sin of being a father.
