True Detective Season 2 News and Rumors

First off, according to this Mother Jones article earlier in the year, T Bone Burnett will return for Season 2 as Music Director if Nic Pizzolatto wants him back.   I can’t figure out why the writer and showrunner would not welcome his return because the music was certainly one of the highlights of the show.  So I consider this a done deal…

Rumors have certainly been rampant for the 2nd season, with Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain and Christian Bale supposedly taking roles and then that gossip was quickly shot down.

So what is happening?  Here is the latest and I am sure subject to change.

According to this article in the Wrap, the plot will be this:

“will follow the death of a corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who’s found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state. Three law enforcement officers from different cities and branches of the government are tasked with finding out who did it. They soon discover their investigation has much broader and darker implications than they initially thought.”

As far as the who the stars of the show will be, the main characters will increase from 2 to 4.   Among the those being considered are:

Vince Vaughn as a thug turned businessman

Colin Farrell as a rogue cop on his payroll

Taylor Kitsch as a California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer

Elisabeth Moss as a tough, no-nonsense Monterey sheriff whose troubled upbringing has driven her to gambling and alcohol

We shall see…..
