While early reports had the central story of “True Detective” Season 2 surrounding three or four different leads, a new source claims there will be just one main character in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s HBO drama.
According to The Wrap, the first script for the second season has been delivered, and while there are both male and female characters, there is just one male lead.

Pizzolatto told reporters in early June that although there was a strong female character, he wouldn’t call the show “female-led,” and that none of the reports about the upcoming season were actually true.
“Literally, not a single rumor about casting that has been printed anywhere has any truth to it whatsoever,” Pizzolatto said.
