"True Detective" producer and writer Nic Pizzolatto revealed Season 2 of the popular HBO drama will take place in California, as opposed to Louisiana where the first season was set. It will also feature three lead characters, with casting said to begin in June.

"Right now, we're working with three leads. It takes place in California — not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser known venues of California," Pizzolatto said. "We're going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one."

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson starred in Season 1, and, despite numerous rumours, actresses Ellen Page, Kate Mara, and Jessica Chastain will not star in Season 2.  

"We've got the entire series broken out with a couple of scripts," Pizzolatto explained. "We'll probably start casting in earnest in the coming months," he concluded. 

We certainly can't wait.
