True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has confirmed that he wants cast members from season one to return for its second run.

The first season of the anthology series is currently airing on HBO and has debuted to widespread acclaim, particularly for the performances of its lead stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

They play two morally compromised detectives trying to solve a string of murders in Louisiana. 

Pizzolato told Entertainment Weekly that the network is keen to order a second season, which would feature a new setting and characters. However, he would like to use some of the same actors.

The writer explained: "I just have to give them scripts and see if they like them!

"It would be great if we could use some of the same actors, like a repertory company."

Director Cary Fukunaga, who helmed all of season one, will not return for True Detective's second run.

The show airs on Saturdays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
