Colin Ferrell Confirms That He Will Be In Season 2 Of True Detective
After a monumental debut season of True Detective, rumors have swirled regarding who would be part of the second installment of HBO’s miniseries. And after the marvelous job that Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey did in the first season, it’s no secret that there are some mighty big shoes to fill. But with the first actor announcing his commitment to the series, rest assured that season 2 will be in good hands.
The Dub spoke to Colin Ferrell, who confirmed his participation in season 2.
“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited,” he said according to the outlet. “I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”
Of course, HBO is keeping anything regarding the script under wraps, but with Ferrell’s announcement, we can only hope to expect something as remotely good as the first season. Ferrell admits that there’s a level of anxiety with the shoes he has to fill. Not to mention that this will be his first foray into a television series.
“There’s a level of anxiety and a level of tension that always makes itself apparent, whatever you’re doing. Ideally, you cut into that in short order as soon as you start telling the story and as soon as you turn it from a conceptual experience into something that’s practical and being given breath.”
Season 2 of True Detective should hit the network mid-2015.
