Fans waiting for updates on "True Detective" Season 3 can finally find a glimmer of hope as it is being said that the work has begun on the project. Sources inform that creator Nic Pizzolatto has already written two fresh episodes for the coming season and popular writer-producer David Milch of "Deadwood" and "NYPD Blue" fame is also rumored to be joining Pizzolatto.

HBO's popular crime anthology drama "True Detective" is likely to be revived for a third season. According to Entertainment Weekly, Nic Pizzolatto is working behind the scenes and if sources are to be believed he has already penned two new episodes for "True Detective" Season 3.  Not only this, he might also be assisted by David Milch, the Emmy-winning writer and producer as Milch is said to have expressed a desire to work with him.

However, the degree of their collaboration is not yet formalized and everything is in initial stages. Still, it would make for a great team if the two prolific creative minds come together. Notably, "True Detective" was launched in 2014 and it drew huge acclaim from critics as well as fans. Though the next season did not find favor with critics, both the seasons earned high ratings. So, fans were hoping that "True Detective" Season 3 would also arrive.

What made the buzz around "True Detective" Season 3 more intense was Casey Bloys statement. The HBO Head of Programming had said in July 2016 that both Nic and HBO were open to "True Detective" Season 3. He had also stated that he did not think Nic had a take as he was working on some other projects. However, he admitted that he was open to somebody else writing it and Nic supervising it.

So, is it that "True Detective" Season 3 would see some other creator? Well, only time will tell if Nic Pizzolatto or David Milch or both would be helming the much-awaited season.
