The future of HBO’s hit and miss True Detective is up in the air, as network decides whether or not to green light a third season following a critical failure of a season two.
Some say the departure of director Cary Joji Fukunaga left writer / creator Nic Pizzolatto without the ability to recreate the magic of their beloved first season, but others might say that it was the show’s characters that brought True Detective to life in the first season: namely that of Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle and Woody Harrelson’s Martin “Marty” Hart.
But, now we know that some good could come from a future season. In an interview with The Rich Eisen Show, Matthew McConaughey was asked about his character and reprising his role, to which he quickly responded to as “yes”.
“I miss Rust Cohle, man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights. I miss watching True Detective on Sunday nights. I was a happy man when we made that for six months… But yeah, I would. I’ve talked to Nic about it. It would have to be the right context, the right way.”
