During an interview Sunday on the Wisconsin Public Radio program "To The Best Of Our Knowledge," Pizzolatto said that season 2 will be set somewhere in the Golden State -- marking a sharp contrast from the Deep South setting seen in the first season, which wrapped in March.
Pizzolatto added that the new season will not take place in Los Angeles, but will instead be set in "some of the much-lesser known venues of California."So it looks like a lesser known location in Cali and three leads (one of which I expect to be female)."Right now, we're working with three leads," he explained. "The characters are all new, but I'm deeply in love with each of them."
