HBO boss Michael Lombardo has reaffirmed his desire for True Detective Season 3, despite the backlash to Season 2, which he points out is hitting an average 12 million viewers.
Lombardo says Season 2 will have a very satisfying ending, but has already opened discussions about Season 3 with creator Nic Pizzolatto, per THR:
“Nic Pizzolatto is one of the best writers working in television and motion pictures today. I think he takes a big swing. I think the show ends with as satisfying an end as any show I’ve seen.”
“I’d love to do another season. I haven’t asked every one of the 12 million viewers who is watching, but I think what he’s doing is so much bolder, braver and satisfying that what I’m seeing in film. I’d happily be in business with him for a long time.”
