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.

USA Cancels Political Animals

Political Animals will not return for a second season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

The six-episode series, starring Sigourney Weaver and Carla Gugino, was originally conceived as a miniseries, but producer Greg Berlanti and some of the show's stars hinted that it might be picked up for a second season if the initial run drew enough viewers. The show premiered to 3.8 million total viewers and averaged a modest 3.2 million viewers for the six weeks it was on the air.
