How Emmy's Controversial Category Choices Paid Off, and This Year's Other Trivia

According to the Emmy Awards ballot, True Detective isn't a miniseries, but Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven are. Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie and Shameless are comedies, even though there are frequently more tears than laughs on those shows.

The debate over how to classify shows that defy classification ruffled plenty of feathers during this year's Emmy campaign season. Yet... read more

Here Are the First Details About True Detective Season 2

While there have been more than a few casting rumors regarding True Detective's anticipated second season, creator Nic Pizzolatto revealed a major game-changer for everyone's favorite speculative hashtag: Season 2 will feature three leads.

"Right now, we're working with three leads," Pizzolatto told the To the Best Of Our Knowledge podcast, before revealing even more changes. "It takes place in California. Not Los Angeles, but some of the lesser known venues of California and we're going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did with Season 1. The characters are all new, but I am deeply in love with all of them. We have the entire season broken out, and I have a couple of scripts, and we'll probably start casting within the coming month."

Emmy Watch: As TV Splinters, Key Categories Get Squeezed

You wouldn't compare a McDonald's Extra Value Meal to an expensive dinner at a five-star restaurant. But that's the predicament Emmy Awards voters increasingly face in such key categories as comedy and drama. (Nominations will be announced July 10; NBC airs the ceremony, hosted by Seth Meyers, on August 25.)

As primetime splinters into subgenres, shows with little in common must compete in the same races, and there's no room at all for plenty of popular shows, particularly from the broadcast networks... read more

True Detective Finale: A Happy Ending?

Although HBO's True Detective spent the last eight weeks setting the Internet on fire with crazed fan theories about "The Yellow King," the anthology drama series ended much like it began: with two men arguing about the ways of the world while trying to catch a killer. read more

Question: True Detective is by far my new favorite show! The acting, storyline, intensity (especially last week's episode on Feb. 9) is incredible! 
I've heard that this is just a miniseries. However, with the good ratings and reviews as it is getting, any word on a possible renewal of a second season? - Mike

Matt Roush: Though it hasn't been officially renewed yet, that seems to be just a formality at this point, especially since HBO has signed the show's creator Nic Pizzolatto to a two-year deal. Which means more True Detective, although whatever happens, it will be a very different True Detective in seasons to come. Because this is one of those franchises that occupies the territory somewhere between miniseries and anthology, not unlike American Horror Story but potentially with less of a repertory ensemble feel. If/when True Detective returns, it will be with new stars, new characters, a new locale and new focus, so don't get too attached to Rust Cohle and Marty Hart, although I understand why you would be.
