They were rumblings that a season 3 of 'True Detective' would eventually be made and now it seems that its not only moving forward, but they already have a lead star lined up.
The man for the lead role is no other than Mahershala Ali, who has rose now recently to prominence with his performance in 'Moonlight', but many others will have already known him from shows such as 'House of Cards' and Luke 'Cage'. Undeniably a great pick for a show known for its top talent casting. Another positive note is that original creator Nic Pizzolatto is back to writing a few of the episodes and has brought on board with him the award winning writer David Milch (NYPD Blue, Deadwood and Luck).
And even though most weren't ecstatic with what was the second season, no one would go as far in calling it terrible TV, it just didn't live up to the greatness of the first season. Something the new season may or may not do, but still will be nonetheless must see TV.
