Matthew McConaughey Not Returning for 'True Detective' Season 2
The Sunday, March 9 finale of "True Detective" would be the last episode that Matthew McConaughey stars in. The actor, who won an Oscar that day for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club", is not returning for the HBO series' second season.
McConaughey was the one sharing the sad news in the press room of the Academy Awards backstage. "I won't be back for season two. Season one was finite," he said. Meanwhile, HBO has not said anything about season two being picked up.
The 44-year-old actor was still able to joke about giving out spoilers for the finale. "It's probably airing right now," he told the press. "Has anyone seen it? I made the thing...and I'm not sure what happens." He added, "Aww, maybe I do and I'm not telling."
"True Detective", created by Nic Pizzolatto, debuted in January in the U.S. for eight episodes. Starring Woody Harrelson as well, the drama was an instant hit with 2.3 million viewers in the premiere ratings. Of taking a TV role after a number of hit movies, McConaughey said, "All I knew is I read the first two episodes, and I was in. And I was just, at the time, looking for quality."
