This Week in True Detective: Fandom Edition


This Week in True Detective is a feature that aims to bring you the best True Detective happenings of the week. This could include breaking news, popular articles, or anything else that people found interesting or may have missed.

It should be said that this past week was possibly our first truly slow week since the end of True Detective season two. There have been no major True Detective season three rumors to speak of, and most have moved on from season two. Lucky for us, then, that True Detective has a seriously creative fanbase. It’s for that reason that we have christened this edition of This Week in True Detective as the “Fan Art Edition.”

Let’s kick things off with an interview. The Director of Photography for True Detective season two, Nigel Bluck, gave a telling interview in which he discussed the troubles with shooting with a rotating roster of directors. He also had a thing to say on the secrecy that surrounds True Detective and how it seeps into every aspect of production. 

Speaking of directors, first season Director Cary Fukunaga was honored at the Princess Grace Awards. Nic Pizzolatto also won an award for Writer of the Year for 2015 from British GQ. We’ll let you go ahead and guess which season was the focus of that particular award.

We looked into the small town feel that True Detective season two desperately clings two, for better or worse. We also imagined True Detective season three in five different settings, some of which would be considered quite unorthodox by True Detective standards.

Now, on to the aforementioned fan creations. This week gave us one of the best True Detective pieces of fan art that we’ve ever seen, and that’s saying something. We also got to see what True Detective season two would look like as a sitcom in the form of “Everybody Loves Raymond Velcoro.” Get it?

And that’s your True Detective week. Speaking of fan art, if you’ve created something True Detective related that you’ve been itching to show off, you can show it to us on Facebook or Twitter. We’d love to see it!

Next: Everybody Loves Raymond Velcoro has Finally Come.
