MOONLIGHT Star Mahershala Ali May Lead Season 3 of TRUE DETECTIVE

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Moonlight Oscar winner Mahershala Ali is in talks to lead the third season of the HBO anthology series 'True Detective.' The show has yet to confirm a third season, but the interest is there.

The show's creator Nic Pizzolatto is under contract to HBO until 2018. HBO programming president Casey Bloys spoke about a third season in July of 2016 saying, "We're open to someone else writing it with Nic supervising it; it's a really valuable franchise for us. It's not dead; I'm just not sure we have the right take for a third season - yet."

Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch star in Season 2 of "True Detective," which weaves a web of conspiracy and betrayal around a bizarre murder in the scorched landscapes of Southern California. The disappearance of a city manager ignites an investigation involving Ray Velcoro, a police detective torn between his job and those he serves in the Mafia; Frank Semyon, a criminal/entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire; Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff's detective whose resolute ethics are unpopular; and Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and highway patrol motorcycle cop with a troublesome past.
