Matthew McConaughey and Nic Pizzolatto are getting the gang back together, friends! Specifically, the two motherfuckers are reuniting for a series on FX. Sign me the fuck up.
We get the world we deserve! Man. Reminds me so much of Jonathan Hickman’s general comic philoso-aesthetic that I have to fight the urge to crack open East of West.
I can’t be the only one looking at the poster for True Detective season two and thinking it sounds a lot of something that could come out of Jonathan Hickman’s mouth, can I? Like, some straight-up East of West shit. And you know. Given how much the Mind behind True Detective likes *cough* borrowing things and all.
Hit the jump to check it out.
None of these rumors are confirmed. I don’t find any of them particularly enormous. But none the less they shall be stuffed underneath under the break. Flock with me friends. Read the rumors. Time is a flat circle, but True Detective Season 2 anticipation can be a circle jerk. That ain’t clever, but hey I’m working with a limited capacity.
Colin Farrell can act. Can act damn well. When he chooses to. So if he ends up on True Detective‘s second season, I expect great fucking things from him. Bring the glorious bastard on.
This site has already documented the news that getting True Detective season two off the ground is an arduous as fuck process. So it really isn’t surprising that the show’s creator Nick Pizzajaredletto has come out and said he can’t imagine the jam going more than three seasons. That is, until the HBO Monster unleashes what we around the asylum call the Equalizer. You know: a fucking fuck load of cash.
Matthew McConaughey has said that he’d be up for doing more True Detective. A factoid uttered from his gorgeous mouth that contradicts pretty much everything he said in the press while the show was airing. My two worthless cents? No thanks. Cohle is one of my favorite characters in TV history, and he established his vice-like grip on my heart in a taut eight episodes. As much as I’d like to see his glorious shitstache and gaunt cheek bones one more time, his return would run contrary to so much of what made the show so fucking wonderful in the first place. Let the wonderful coda the season ended on remain its coda.
Well, I’m glad that True Detective‘s second season doesn’t seem any less bonkers than its first. In addition to letting us know the show will have three leads, creator Nic Pizzolatto has revealed the show is exploring the Psychosphere of California. I have no idea what the fuck this means, but killer. Gnarly.
