True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has announced today that the highly anticipated second season of the HBO hit will feature three leads. The first season starred two leads, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as crime-solving detectives, but neither will be returning and the show will be casting these new roles in the upcoming weeks.
A few months ago, this became a huge Twitter hashtag trend — #TrueDetectiveSeason2 — with everyone guessing who would take McConaughey and Harrelson’s spots. Guesses ranged from serious to utterly hilarious, but with today’s news, the hashtag has revived itself on the social media and we want to throw in some new bets.
Here’s who we want to see in the new season of True Detective:
Blake, Adam and Anders from Workaholics
These guys may look like slackers, but we bet they would be kickass detectives.
Bart, Lisa and Maggie Simpson
Have you seen the number of adventures these three kids have gone through? Plus, Maggie’s pretty good with a gun.
Three Nick Krolls
Nick Kroll plays so many characters on his show that any three of them put together would make for a dynamic trio of detectives. Especially Bobby Bottleservice.
Community’s Annie, Shirley and Jeff
Two female leads plus Jeff Winger? We’re in.
Community’s Troy, Abed and Jeff
Of course you can’t beat Community’s power duo, though. Again, plus Jeff Winger. The guy just has that detective look, y’know?
Broad City’s Abby, Ilana and Amy Poehler
BAD ASS BITCHES TO THE RESCUE.
