Colin Farrell Confirms “TRUE DETECTIVE” Season Two Role!


When HBO’s TRUE DETECTIVE launched earlier this year, few (including FANGORIA) could have predicted just how far into genre territory the series would venture. In fact, many horror fans have praised the season finale of TRUE DETECTIVE as one of the best hours of horror television this year, standing among horror procedurals such as SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and SE7EN. And with the series adopting the “seasonal anthology” format, speculation has run wild with where the series can go from here and if we should expect that genre element to return.

While the rumor mill continues to turn, an exclusive report from Irish newspaper Sunday World confirms one integral piece of TRUE DETECTIVE’s second season as FRIGHT NIGHT actor Colin Farrell will lead the series. Having been circling the show for quite some time, Farrell states, “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great.”

While HBO has not confirmed the casting news (or, for that matter, a second season of TRUE DETECTIVE altogether), many believe that HBO will wait for casting to be completed before making the big announcement. As for the horror element, TRUE DETECTIVE creator/writer Nic Pizzolatto has previously stated the second season will include “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.”
