True Detective Season 2 to Include Trio of Leads, California Setting

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Nic Pizzolatto has shed some unexpected light on True Detective Season 2.

Speaking to the public radio program "To The Best of Our Knowledge," the writer/showrunner said the series will feature “three leads” for its second run and it will also take place in California.

"Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser known venues of California, Pizzolatto said. "And we're going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in [True Detective Season 1]."

Rust and Marty (True Detective)
Rust and Marty don't always get along. But they stave off their personal demons by focusing on the professional ones at work.

Talk of Jessica Chastain joining the drama were quickly shot down, but Pizzolatto did say casting will begin in earnest in a couple months.

"The characters are all new, but I'm deeply in love with each of them," he says. "We've got the entire series broken out with a couple of scripts."

But more than a couple of top stars.

Guess we'll need to amend the following gallery of suggestions, huh?

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

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.

Rust: As sentient meat, however illusory our identities are, we craft those identities by making value judgements. Everybody judges all the time. Now, you got a problem with that, you're living wrong.
Marty: What's scented meat?
