As we all know, True Detective – series one, of course – was one of the best crime dramas on the box for a long time when it aired in 2014. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey made for an excellent team. Sadly, while it had its moments, series two didn’t match up with the hype. A while back we brought you news that showrunner Nic Pizzolatto had written some episodes for a third series, but David Milch had been brought in to share writing duties. Now there’s more exciting speculation.
Entertainment Weekly reports that this year’s Oscar-winning actor, Mahershala Ali, had been approached to star in the third series
The recent Oscar winner is in talks to star in a possible third season of the anthology series, EW has confirmed, though a deal has not been reached.
There isn’t much more to go on at the moment, but this feels right for True Detective who, in its past, has attracted Hollywood-level talent to HBO, the show’s US home.
