The First 'True Detective' Season 2 Script Is Done, and Our Dreams of a Female Lead Are Crushed

By Cindy Davis | Trade News | June 30, 2014 | Comments ()


The long wait for news of True Detective’s second season has left us with nothing but false rumors and quickly crushed dreams, and it looks like our hopes for one or more female leads is no exception. The first “official” bit of news about the cast Nic Pizzolatto has in store for us is in the form of a short, bittersweet tweet:


Since Pizzolatto previously stated “Right now, we’re working with three leads,” we could glean from this tweet that a) everything has changed, or b) this is what he meant by three leads — one overall lead, and two sort of sub-leads. But if things keep going the way they have been, whatever our presumptions, they’ll probably be wrong. Maybe everything is a lie.

In summary, we know nothing, Nic Pizzolatto…but we’d really like to.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) is hoping for some great cast surprises.

    I had a feeling there wouldnt be a female lead. Judging by the way Pizzolatto wrote women in the first season and the other stuff he's done I didn't peg him as a writer of steely, badass female detectives.

    As long as they stick to their system of

    So that'd be Rory McCann as the male lead, and Maisie Williams as the female co-lead? (The male co-lead gets immediately Needle-d by Maisie).

  • Is put my vote in for Lorraine Toussaint. Right?

  • cox

    fuck yeah. lets put her as the lead on everything. she can even host dancing with the stars, as far as i'm concerned. (she will give it a fresh, violent interpretation)

  • sailboat

    Jessica Chastain should be in this

  • JustOP

    The dreamteam - Bryan Cranston as lead, Idris Elba as male co-star, Frances McDormand as female.

    The 'in my dreams dream team'. Harrison Ford, Hilary Swank, Andrew Lincoln. I dunno why but when I see this group in my head it just looks really fucking good.

    If Daiman Lewis is the "Male lead" my hopes and dreams for TD S2 are no where near "crushed".
