There's still a chance that HBO will bring True Detective back for a third season at some point despite a highly disappointing second season, and now, some ideas have surfaced which seem to indicate what the show needs in order to go back to its former glory.

In a new article in GQ, several ways the show could improve upon the panned second season are mentioned, and not only is allowing a new staff of writers to work on things mentioned, but so are other tips for how to reclaim the glory and fervor the show's first season, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, instilled in both critics and fans.

It's been reported already that HBO would consider bringing the show back if Nic Pizzolatto also agreed to hire new writers for the show, keeping him from wearing too many hats, which is similar to how the first season was run, where Cary Fukunaga directed and Pizzolatto wrote. However, it isn't the only thing the show needs to consider.

According to the article, the show also needs to consider following a formula similar to FX's Fargo, which improved upon its second season, and make it more comedic since HBO now has another serious drama in The Night Before.

However, one of the bigger improvements the articles suggests the show make is in its casting. While Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn were all considered good picks when they were cast, they weren't surprising choices for the gritty drama series.

"In retrospect, it's obvious that the best part of True Detective season two was #truedetectiveseasontwo-the viral hashtag that suggests an essentially limitless number of pairings of actor who could star in the second season. But who, in the end, did we get? Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn-fine actors, but so obviously cut out for True Detective that it was hard not to yawn at the announcement," the article reads. "It gets even worse as you scroll down the list of other actors who were reportedly considered for roles: Michael Fassbender, Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Brad any grim, grizzled white dudes does one cop show need?"

Of course, if all else fails, the article has one last suggestion for those behind the show. And if they can't think of anything else, HBO just needs to re air the show's first season, an refer to it as season three.
