True Detective season 3 cancelled
Season 2 of True Detective heavily disappointed its fans resulting in lower viewership record HBO

True Detective season 3 cancellation rumours are swirling high over the internet. Season one of True Detective ruled the viewership chart for HBO but the same magic couldn't be weaved during the second season as both the viewers and the critics panned it. And almost a year later, it seems HBO is not eager to move forward with season three as the series's creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is working on a new project.

In one of its article, Hollywood Reporter claimed doom for HBO as other than Game Of Thrones nothing seems to be working for the network.

Here is what the website says in its report:

"While juggernaut Game of Thrones and the final season of Damon Lindelof's Peabody-winning drama The Leftovers shouldn't require too much of Bloys' time, other decisions, including the fate of True Detective, now fall to him. (HBO sources suggest a new project from creator Nic Pizzolatto is more likely.)"

The anthology crime drama received rave reviews for its first season, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, but the second season with the principal cast of Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly and Vince Vaughn, failed to impress.

Casey Bloys recently took charge of HBO's programming head from Michael Lombardo and the fate of the once popular thriller show is at his mercy. But the network signed a new contract with Pizzolatto in November 2015, under which the writer may be asked to write few more projects, including True Detective season 3.

But if he is writing another series, chances are remote that another season of the crime drama will make its way to the television. However, these are all speculations and HBO is yet to respond to the cancellation rumours. Fans on the other hand seem divided over the series' cancellation rumours.
