HBO is becoming a Streep family business. Weeks after the network confirmed Meryl Streep will make an Emmy-gobbling return for Big Little Lies Season 2, True Detective has now added her daughter Mamie Gummer to the Season 3 ranks for a likely 2019 premiere.
HBO seems to have bounced back from its string of disappointments with Westworld, but don’t expect True Detective to be granted another shot just yet. If it is, at least Season 1 star Matthew McConaughey is all-in to return for another round with creator Nic Pizzolatto.
True Detective anticipation evaporated practically overnight with the release of Season 2, and nearly one year removed from its finale, HBO is increasingly less keen on re-lighting that e-cigarette. Following a network changing of the guard, creator Nic Pizzolatto is even less likely to develop any True Detective Season 3, instead focusing on other projects.
HBO’s True Detective smashed time into a flat circle by its blockbuster first season, but did you know that creator Nic Pizzolatto originally intended the story as his next novel? Or that Matthew McConaughey’s Rustin Cohle only drinks eight beers over the course of the series? These are just some of the case files pulled from the twelfth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which investigates the occult drama of of HBO’s True Detective!
"There's a videotape." Yes. Yes, there is. And when it rolls, turn out the lights, the party's over!
I've never seen "Magic Mike", but I'm thinking that it will take a mash up of epic proportions to dethrone this little
masterpiece - are you up to the challenge...
