'True Detective' Season 2 will be about 'hard women,' U.S. transportation system

For those of you who were patient enough to wrestle with HBO Go long enough to catch the final episode of the first season of the smash drama True Detective, congratulations. You managed to make it through the entire, maddening, mysterious, magnificent eight-episode run and-even if you're leaving with a "meh"-you're all the better for it.

For those of you who were patient enough to wrestle with HBO Go long enough to catch the final episode of the first season of the smash drama True Detective, congratulations. You managed to make it through the entire, maddening, mysterious, magnificent eight-episode run and—even if you're leaving with a "meh"—you're all the better for it.

Showrunner Nic Pizzolatto certainly left plenty of questions unanswered, but that shouldn't take away from the brilliance with which he tortured rabid fans along the way. And, since time is a flat circle and everything that happens will happen again and again, echoing through the vast vacancy of existence, he's gearing up to do it all again.

Speaking with Alan Sepinwall over at Hitfix, Pizzolatto talked about the end of the first season of his critically-acclaimed show and what viewers have to look forward to next time around.

I don't know where you are in working on season 2, but has any of the reaction to this season informed what you're doing with the next? 

Nic Pizzolatto: It's informed exactly one thing. It's that I realize I need to keep being strange. Don't play the next one straight.

Can you tell me anything at all about season 2? 

Nic Pizzolatto: Okay. This is really early, but I'll tell you (it's about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system.

Meet back in Carcosa for the start of Season 2? Deal. Seeya there. [Hitfix]
