Time is a flat circle

True Detective season 2 won't air until summer 2015

Bad news, True Detective fans: at the Edinburgh TV Festival, HBO programming director Michael Lombardo revealed that the acclaimed drama won't air its highly anticipated second season anytime soon.

"We're going to start shooting it in September for it to air next summer," said Lombardo. He also confirmed several rumored details about season 2, including a California setting and three main characters — one of whom is female.

Widespread rumors claim those main characters will be played by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Elisabeth Moss, with Vince Vaughn rumored for a supporting role. Lombardo didn't confirm any of those names, but added, "we'll probably be announcing casting soon."
