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."

In addition to these details, Pizzolatto has previously said that Season 2 will be about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system."

What do you think of True Detective with three leads? Who would you cast? Will you miss the Southern accents?
