Matthew McConaughey not returning for a second season of 'True Detective'


Matthew Mcconaughey will not be returning for a second season of "True Detective."

The Oscar-winning "Dallas Buyers Club" actor stars in the TV miniseries as a troubled police detective who suffers a falling out with his partner, played by Woody Harrelson, as they investigate a string of local murders.

The show, created by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, was initially pitched to network executives at HBO as an anthology series, with a different cast of characters tackling a new storyline each season, and now McConaughey has confirmed he will not be returning if the series gets picked up for a second round.

He says, "I won't be back for season two. Season one was finite."

"True Detective's" season one finale will air on Sunday.
