It appears a wildly inconsistent and completely maligned second season may have officially done things in for True Detective, but in a more surprising twist, fans of the once popular anthology series don't even seem to care that the show has come to an end.  

A recent report in The Hollywood Reporter has suggested that the series would not get a third season at HBO, with previous news that creator Nic Pizzolatto's contract extension deal with the cable channel potentially actually about his creating other projects instead, meaning the show's second season last summer was it's last.  

In an article about HBO's new programming director Casey Bloys, a simple sentence seemed to indicate that the series was officially dead and no longer moving on.  

"While juggernaut Game of Thrones and the final season of Damon Lindelof's Peabody-winning drama The Leftovers shouldn't require too much of Bloys' time, other decisions, including the fate of True Detective, now fall to him," the article reads. "(HBO sources suggest a new project from creator Nic Pizzolatto is more likely). " 

While it doesn't overtly state that the show was canceled, it doesn't appear to be a good sign for it's fate either, with the only silver lining being that HBO could just potentially be shelving the show for now, giving time for Pizzolatto's new projects, and that they will revisit the series at a later date.  

However, more surprising about the news is that despite the show having something like a cult following during it's first two seasons, there has been little word on social media from fans decrying the decision, or even those applauding it. The decision to cancel popular shows tends to bring huge reactions on Twitter, and even inspires major trends, with Network shows that were canceled recently like ABC's Nashville, as well as other cable channel shows like MTV's Faking It, both creating major trends which took over social media. However, True Detective fans and critics alike have all kept silent.  

The show's first season, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, became a phenomenon, and was highly praised by critics, which led to HBO requesting a second season the following year. With an all-star cast consisting of Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch, it too seemed poised to be a hit. However, it was widely panned by critics before its premiere, and fans were disappointed overall as the season progressed.
