With a new cast, new setting and new plot, “True Detective” is the source of much speculation heading into its second season.

Writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto told public radio show “To the Best of Our Knowledge” that there’s plenty to be excited about regarding the future of the hit HBO program.

Nic began, “Right now, we’re working with three leads. It takes place in California — not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser known venues of California — and we’re going to try to capture a certain psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.”

“The characters are all new, but I’m deeply in love with each of them. We’ve got the entire series broken out with a couple of scripts, and we’ll probably start casting in earnest in the coming months,” he teased.
