Production of yet another season of “True Detectives” is currently underway. HBO president of programming, Casey Bloys, at the recently held Television Critics Association press tour made an update on the return of the crime-drama analogy. Another hit show “The Night Of” is also slated to release along with “True Detectives” season 3.

With the show in limbo for almost two years after the failure of the second season, HBO bosses have apparently decided to give “True Detectives” another chance. Bloys reportedly said he is “hopeful” seeing “True Detectives” creator Nic Pizzolatto “closing in on ideas” he is “excited about,” almost akin to “The Night Of” makers, Richard Price and Steven Zallian.

Despite Mathew McConaughey, who played Rustin Cohle in the previous “True Detective” seasons, saying last December that the “ball’s not advanced at all” per Entertainment Weekly, “True Detective” season 3 is happening after all. The update from Pizzolatto cancels all inhibitions, and sounds more promising than the actor’s.  

Earlier, McConaughey had said that “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto is “taking a little break from it.” “If that thing was written well and it came up again, I wouldn't hesitate for a second,” he went on to say.

From the looks of it, the show’s future looks bright in spite of the fact that “True Detectives” season 3 will not return for at least a while. Production has just begun and the network is cautiously optimistic about it, as reported by Deadline.

Finally, it would be safe to assume that “True Detective” is yet to see its end given the recent developments on the show’s third season. “True Detective” season 1, which featured Woody Harrelson and McConaughey in the lead, received applauses from both viewers and critics. While the second one couldn’t live up to its reputation, it’s earnestly being hoped that the show surpasses expectation this time.

Watch “True Detectives” in Australia exclusively on Foxtel. US viewers can stream the show live on HBO Go.
