"True Detective " season 1 was indeed the best drama series to come from HBO's arsenal. It became the hot favorite drama within a few days of going on air. Not only it got a nod from the audience but went on to become one of the most critically acclaimed dramas of all time. But being a anthology series, the makers of the show have to start from a fresh page for season 2. Fans can't help wonder about the cast and plot of the new season.
Rumours have it that the maker of the show Nic Pizzolatto is looking for a female lead for the show as season 2 is female centric. According to reports by Nerdist.com, one of the names who is leading in the race of female leads is Jessica Chastain.

Representatives of the actress have denied to comment on the rumours and there still no official confirmation regarding the cast of the series. Meanwhile, Brad Pitt's name is already making rounds for the lead. Does that mean Chastain could partner Pitt in solving the crime mystery?
