While HBO hasn't officially renewed its hit new series True Detective, series creator Nic Pizzolatto revealed in March that he is already writing the scripts for Season 2. Today, The Mirror reports that Brad Pitt is currently "thrashing out an agreement" to star in the second season.

We already know that Season 1 stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson won't be back for Season 2, which will feature a whole new cast and story line. The actor already has ties with HBO, producing their upcoming TV movie The Normal Heart, airing Sunday, May 25. If the actor does reach a deal with the cable network, it will be his first television appearance since a 2001 episode of Friends, alongside his wife at the time, Jennifer Aniston.

Season 1 of True Detective, which ended its eight-episode run in March, followed two Louisiana detectives whose 17-year-old unsolved murder case is re-opened.
