There's been rumors of a male and female lead, all-female leads, and even three leads for the upcoming second season of HBO's "True Detective".
Now, The Wrap reports that the script for the first episode is complete has been handed in. Agency sources tell them it sports just one male lead, and a mix of male and female co-stars.
This is contrary to quotes by creator Nic Pizzolatto who said: "Right now, we're working with three leads. It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California and we're going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambience of the place, much like we did with season one."
At present, a second season has not been green lit by HBO. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson served as the leads in the first season.
