Matthew McConaughey will not return for Season 2 of 'True Detective'
Co-starring Woody Harrelson
Matthew McConaughey who won at Sunday's Academy Awards for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, has announced that he will not be returing to his previous role as Rustin Cohle in HBO's eight-part television miniseries — True Detective.
"No, I won’t be back for season two." McConaughey said backstage at the 86th Academy Awards earlier this week. "Season one was finite. Eight episodes, that's the end [of the conversation]."
It also remains unknown whether McConaughey's True Detective co-star Woody Harrelson — who plays the role of Martin Hart — will be returning in Nic Pizzolatto's created series.
The American crime drama is based on two Louisiana homicide detectives — McConaughey and Harrelson — as they hunt for a notorious serial killer in Louisiana across a seventeen year timeline. The critically acclaimed mini-series premiered on January 12 2014, and consists of just eight episodes.
