With less than a month left for HBO to premiere "True Detective" season 2, speculations are gaining steady pace on the possible plot line and cast details of the crime drama and the latest one suggests that it will focus on the mystery of a missing girl.
Earlier, creator Nic Pizzolatto had stated that the new sequel will focus on bad men, hard women and the secret occult history of the US transportation system. But he denied it during a question and answer session with Medium.
"It's not, I'm afraid. There's definitely bad men and hard women, but no secret occult history of the US transportation system. That was a comment from very early in the process, and something I ended up discarding in favour of closer character work and a more grounded crime story," said the show-runner.
Explaining further about the upcoming season of "True Detective", Nic said, "While there's nothing occult in this season, I think there's a disconcerting psychology to this world, and its characters have other kinds of uncanny reality with which to contend."
Recently, actress Abigail Spencer, who portrays Alicia in the HBO series, teased that there could be powerful female characters in the upcoming season. "There's going to be some amazing performances from the women on the show for sure," she told Deadline.
In the meantime, the series has hired some porn stars, including Amia Miley and Peta Jensen, for the show and it is speculated that it will focus on satanic sex. So "True Detective" season 2 is likely to revolve around the mystery of a missing girl, who could have got herself trapped in it.
The cast members of the series includes Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Taylor Kitsch as highway patrol officer Paul Woodrugh and Rachel McAdams as sheriff Ani Bezzerides.
Meanwhile, "Jurassic World" actor Irrfan Khan may join the cast list of HBO crime drama as he had earlier stated that he would love to be a part of it. "I've just watched True Detective, and it stayed in my mind for many months. I would love to be a part of more great TV shows," he told The Hollywood Reporter.
