Jessica Chastain Will Not Be Appearing In 'True Detective' Season 2

Despite numerous reports that have surfaced as of late, Jessica Chastain will not be appearing in the second season of HBO's hit crime series 'True Detective.'

The Nerdist previously reported that the Academy-Award nominated actress was targeted by the television network, who offered her a leading role in the series, but she has not yet made a decision.

However, this claim was instantly quashed by E!News, who report that HBO never made an offer and Chastain's rep also told the website that she "is not doing the series."

This may be because the 37 year-old actress is keeping very busy, she recently attended the Canes Film Festival for the premiere of 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,' and is set to co-star in Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' alongside Matthew McConaughey.

However the question still remains...who will be cast in the second series of 'True Detective?'

Fans are hotly anticipating the follow-up season as the first received rave reviews since debuting this past January, and concluding in March.

McConaughey and Woody Harrelson starred as two detectives over a timeline of 17 years as they try to track down a serial killer in Louisiana. The unsolved case has to rely on the law enforcers testimonies when re-opened, but as the story progresses the murder becomes more bizarre.

The creator, Nic Pizzolatto, has implied that female characters will feature heavily in the second season in several tweets and in an interview with HitFix earlier this year.

When asked about what to expect in season 2, Pizzolatto simply said, "This is really early, but I'll tell you (it's about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system."
