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

Sigourney Weaver

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.

Summer Heats Up With the Boys of USA

USA Boys of Summer

A cop, a con man and a fake lawyer walk into a bar...and, no joke, every head turns. Still, it's nothing new to see the trio in question — Michael Ealy, Matt Bomer and Patrick J. Adams — with other, equally good-looking buddies. On the cops-in-therapy freshman series Common Law, Ealy's been sparking with costar Warren Kole as mismatched LAPD partners Travis Marks and Wes Mitchell. Bomer's White Collar schemer Neal Caffrey has spent the past three seasons bantering and buddying up to Tim DeKay's straitlaced Fed Peter Burke. And the SAG-nominated Adams is about to kick off his second season as legal-eagle poser Mike Ross opposite Gabriel Macht's slickster attorney Harvey Specter on Suits. Together, this holy trinity of cheekbones and charm exemplify the easy-to-look-at and easier-to-love attitude of USA's sunniest, funniest dramedies. Over drinks at a Manhattan hot spot the day before their high-seas cover shoot, the fellas shot the breeze with us about the network's "blue skies" aesthetic, their on-screen sidekicks and the pitch-perfect cross-over episode... read more
