Colin Farrell has confirmed his involvement in the second season of Nic Pizzolato's True Detective. After months of rumours and internet speculation linking multiple names to the show Farrell, speaking to Irish newspaper Sunday World, confirmed his involvement and shed some further information on the series.
"I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited, 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."
Show creator Pizzolato has kept quiet on the casting choices for the forthcoming season, but many of Hollywoods brightest actors have been linked; Elisabeth Moss, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch.
Pizzolato did reveal the location of the forthcoming season; a fictional Californian town, with the same eerie feeling and aesthetic of the world that the first season created. One of the major developments for season 2 will see the cast have female leads, with this season dealing with "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system."
