Sorry, everyone. It looks like Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain will not be coming to HBO for the highly anticipated season 2 of "True Detective."

After the internet went into a tizzy due to an exclusive post by Nerdist reporting she was offered the lead role, E! news went ahead and debunked the casting rumblings. HBO denied the rumors and Chastain's reps have said she is not going to be a part of the series. Boo hoos all around.

It's too bad, considering Chastain would have been a fantastic choice to fill the shoes of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson's excellent first season pairing.

So what do we know about season two? Creator Nic Pizzolatto teased a little in an interview with HitFix, revealing, "Okay. 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."
