3 Theories About True Detective Season 2

Mar 13 2014 - 11:08am

HBO's smash hit True Detective [1] is following in the footsteps of anthology series like American Horror Story and completely switching up the show for its second season. This means a new setting, new characters, and a new crime. Since we love speculating (we're pretty good at it [2]), we're taking the hints that writer Nic Pizzolatto has given about the next season and applying them.

So far, Pizzolatto told Entertainment Weekly [3], "I am still fleshing it out. The basic idea: hard women, bad men, and the secret occult history of the US transportation system. I was well on my way in the writing, but there's been a lot noise and work around the end of the first season that got in the way." In an interview with BuzzFeed [4], he also debunks the idea that the next season will be about a murder: "Oh, all kinds of conspiracies suggest themselves. Especially if, like me, you've been reading about the last 40 years of Southern California government."

Given those clues, here are my proposed theories about season two!

Do any of these sound right to you? If not, what theory do you propose about season two?
