HBO's True Detective Heads to California for Season Two

True Detective is leaving the swamplands of Louisiana behind -- and heading to California for season two!

In an interview on the radio show "To the Best of Our Knowledge," series creator/writer Nic Pizzolatto confirms the detectives won't be heading to L.A. And while we know this doesn't necessarily mean San Francisco will be featured, he -- at least -- didn't count us out!

In an excerpt from the interview he confirms that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson won't be returning, and added "Right now, we're working with three leads. 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 psychosphere ambiance of the place, much like we did with season one."

He also mentions how landscape -- from the topography to socioeconomic factors -- are a large factor, so if its anything like season one, we think the rolling hills of the City and shimmering bay waters won't be bleak enough. But there was also a mention, in an article on Screen Crush, that that Pizzolatto has previously said he may focus on "the secret occult history of the Untied States transportation system." Maybe this means the magic Muni bus? Time will tell.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
