True Detective season 3 premiere date 2018

posted in TV series | 11 Comments


When will season 2 of True Detective start in 2018? Will there be the new episodes of the show? We want to know the premiere date on HBO.

The television series True Detective was recognized as one of the best newcomers 2014 on the American TV. Critics’ reviews were only positive, and the number of fans in the USA comprised more that 3.5 million people at the final episode of the first season.

Of course, after such a successful start HBO management simply didn’t have a right to cancel the project and soon the second season was announced to be developed. This news hasn’t become a surprise for anybody, as back to the beginning of 2014 it appeared that the director Nic Pizzolatto had signed contract with HBO for two years, which meant the renewal of the show for Season 2.

Since the show is an anthology, the new story got new actors, including Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams. The presence of such stars should have made the project even more successful, but this time the critics’ reviews were ambiguous. We cannot say that the season is disappointing, but we also can’t talk about the total success of the show. The number of fans reduced to 2.4 million people, and a score on Rotten Tomatoes fell to 6.4/10 (the first season got 8.5/10).

However, the famous experts from The Washington Post and New York Daily News again praised the work of Nic Pizzolatto, that’s why the chances for Season 3 are quite real. At the moment it is too early to talk about the release date of the third season of True Detective, as HBO is going to discuss the future of the show with the director and only then to announce its verdict.

    Season 2 seemed forced, S1 is hard to beat, because it was fresh, I would however love to see a season 3, just don’t try to be season one, try a different storyline, diff character arcs

  8. Elaine Donegan

    Great show. Keep it going. Also ordered the cd for season 2. Love the singer Vera Lynn.

    True Detective is my favorite series! But season three needs to have a more definitive conclusion. Season two’s conclusion was too far fetched to believe and didn’t make sense!

    I thought season 2 of true detective was one of the best police dramas in a long time. The is more like real life instead of trying to be cute and funny like so many of the current police shows. I could hardly wait from one week to the next. Very gritty and gut wrenching. I was sorry that they killed off Colin Farrel, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughs characters. I think they could have come up with one or two more seasons of stories for their characters. Rachael McAdams was marvellous. Street smart and sassy yet flawed and vulnerable.

    I liked season 1 of True Detective, with Harrelson and Mc Caughney, but season 2 was even better, gritty, earthy, looked forward to the next episode every week. Keep waiting to hear when season 3 will air and am disappointed that the show is kind of in limbo and may be cancelled. Please bring it back, loved the characters. Hoping to see another True Detective in the not to distant future, PLEASE!!
