A third season for True Detective is looking strong.
HBO president of programming Casey Bloys updated the situation on the HBO crime drama at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
“I have read five scripts for a third season and I think they are terrific,” Bloys said. “We have a deal with Mahershala Ali to play the lead. Right now, we are talking to directors. When we find a director that we want to hire we’ll be a go for that.”
That makes a change from his last statement where he was unsure if HBO had the right take for a third season.
Compared to more of The Night Of, he added, “We’re much closer on True Detective.”
Deadwood‘s David Milch and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto are working together on the third season.
