AceShowbiz - "True Detective" is close to getting a third season. The future of the anthology series was in limbo for months following mixed reviews for the second season, but now the potential season 3 has begun shaping up.

At the 2017 summer TCA press tour, HBO programming president Casey Bloys confirmed that %cMahershala Ali% is already signed on to star in a new season of the crime drama series, should it happen. The Oscar-winning "Moonlight" actor was first rumored in talks to play a lead role in the third season last month.

Bloys added that he had read five finished scripts. "They are terrific. ... I was very impressed and excited," he gushed. "We are talking to directors, and when we have a director we want to hire, it will be a go."

Giving an update on "The Night Of" season 2, Bloys hinted that it would also take some time before we get a new installment of the Steven Zaillian-co-created miniseries. "The good news about Steven Zaillian is that he will come to you when he’s ready, and when he comes to us, we'll know he's locked," Bloys said.
