A 3rd season is currently looking highly unlikely. http://www.vulture.com/2016/05/true-detective-season-three-nic-pizzolatto.html

This just proves a lauded 1st season isn't enough to save shows anymore. They can't dip in quality until they've gone at least a few seasons, we're in cancel country.

No! No! No! Why can't shows be allowed to have an 'off' season, why is is all about ratings and money? This could have become great again. I agree with everything everyone above me in the list has said. I really hope this show continues.

I enjoyed the first season, but I wasn't as obsessed with it as everyone else was. I felt that the first half of season 2 was the best, but then plummeted down hill from there. It would be nice if they come back for one more season with a good cast and storyline, but I won't be devastated if it got canceled.

Oh, come on. Season one was one of the best things I've ever seen. I didn't watch it until after the entire season had aired, so I watched all of it in two or three days after I got hooked, and i couldn't stop watching. I watched the first episode of season 2 and didn't get into it as much as the first season, but I still plan on watching it through at some point. What I don't understand is why they're canceling an anthology series. One season not that great? Change it up and make the next one as awesome as the first!

I actually liked season two better.
Season one was great I enjoyed it. At the end though I felt a little, like season one left a sour taste in my mouth, but season two had a more traditional film noir feel through and through. Season one, I think perhaps it freaked me out a bit too much. Season one was exceptionally disturbing. I could never say either were terrible, they were both quite brilliant. Seasons one and two were different, and interesting. I don't regret watching either season.
Did people take issue more with season two's cast, because the story seemed on point to me.
It is a different story and cast every time so who cares, make more. Maybe no one can come up with a good enough story?

Season 2 was so bad, they can cancel this sh!T show for all I care. They canceled Limitless, Damien, and Agent Carter!!! :(

no waaay. I was so hopefull about the upcoming season since the 1st season was great and the serie is good in general.
I think they should have release the second season as first season and then the first season as second. That would be amazing. But, whats done is done, right?

They tried too hard in season 2. If they can return to their roots this is the most powerful show on television.

I'm not surprised. Not because they had an "off-season", but because True Detective contained almost poetic dialogues. This proves that people who use words with more than two syllables and complex sentences are not welcomed so much among the general public. People don't desire to work their minds while watching a TV show (or listening to a politician). They want simple sentences and catch phrases.

This is a bad move.
season two was absolutely great!
Of course season one was a freakishly hard act to follow and i doubt we will ever see anything as good on any show.
In comparison,ya season two wasn't as good as season one but what is?, To say it was a series ending flop is jumping the gun a little.

WHY???? Since when has HBO listened to critics or reviews?? Although I don't know why people were soooooo riled up by their inability to effing follow season 2, if it was THAT hard for them to follow the damn storyline maybe it is because their level of comprehension is more along the lines of CSI s**tville and anything requiring beyond that asks waaaay tooo much.

Besides, YOU OWE US for the last 3 seasons of SAC, the SAC movies, and lets not even start on Entourage. Oh, and for canceling Newsroom !!!!

HBO needs to get together with the creative forces behind season 1 talk discuss make up if needed do season 3 with a new set of actors and characters and I am one audience member of many who will stick with the show. I did not mind season 2 and found some of it interesting . if American Horror story can do it so well why can't true detective do the same . I am sure the creator has more stories to tell just find the right actor combination and go for broke.

Well, the Execs did to this show what (D)Isney did to the Star Wars franchise; interfered at exactly the WRONG time and with an uncalled-for over-abundance of 'ratings narcissism.' "Oh my god!! '...not as good as the first season!? Off with it's head!!'" Jeez, I've seen 14 year old girls react to last minute zits with less histrionics.

Somehow I doubt either show will be cancelled considering they have been "in danger" forever lol

The first True detective series made sense. The second series left me totally cold. If the third series makes sense I would be pleased to see it.

This was a great show -- esp. season one! But season two was good too. Not every year can be a blockbuster. Just keep the good writers HBO! Don't give up on a show when it's still showing promise.

Shouldn't be. It's just that S1 was waay better than S2, but S2 wasn't particularly bad. Really hope it gets renewed.
