1 Comment

With confirmation from creator Nic Pizzolatto on Tuesday, we now know that season two of HBO’s hit True Detective will center around three all new characters. It’s not yet confirmed, but rumors hint that the lead characters will be two males and a female. Season two will be set in California, “Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California. And we’re going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.” Even more rumors say it’s present day Northern California. With all of this info, let the guessing games begin! What do you think will happen in season two? Who is your dream cast?

The female lead (Rachel McAdams) grew up with a father who was a cop killed in the line of duty. His best friend (Jeff Bridges) is her chief and a younger male cop (Gael Garcia Bernal) is her partner. With the case of her father’s death unsolved the partners begin to tie new cases to old cases that led to her father’s death, and all connect back to the chief (aka he’s the killer).

A strong female veteran detective (Zoe Saldana) is constantly at odds with her chief (Tim Robbins), not only because of her superior skills but also because the chief is constantly afraid of losing his position of power to a female detective and former partner. The pair are complemented by a new, young, determined male detective (Shia Labeouf) who is ready to learn the ropes of the force. His naivety threatens both his safety and the safety of his new partner when they discover a mass murderer is on the loose and the new partners figure out how to trust each other and solve the case.

There’s a dark, twisted, damaged male detective (Rob Lowe). A veteran and skilled cop with a hefty drinking problem and a lot of secrets. He overthinks everything and often talks out loud as he tries to understand the twists and turns of the case. He’s gorgeous, an obvious and easy ladies man. His partner is a younger male cop who is naive, optimistic, but driven (Michael B. Jordan). The younger cop dislikes his partner because he often gets lost in his head and leaves the young cop out on his own. The young cop has quite a temper and is often quick on the trigger, because of that he has a dangerously dark past. After a grotesque murder, a task force is formed. New to the force, is a young, doe eyed female (Elizabeth Olsen) with a natural talent and naivety. She quickly finds herself pinned between these partners and their secrets (both on the job and romantically).
