Just because the final pass has been thrown and the last hot wing has been nibbled, Super Bowl 2019 festivities don't have to end.
After a disappointing Season 2, the HBO series returns with Oscar-winner Ali as the haunted detective and Carmen Ejogo as his love.

The “Twin Peaks” reboot got us thinking about how the original ’90s series spawned the dead-girl TV trope that has haunted us since then.
After two years off the air and plenty of speculation about its future, HBO’s True Detective is making some progress behind the scenes toward a new season. EW has exclusively learned that creator Nic Pizzolatto has penned at least the first two episodes for a potential third edition of the acclaimed anthology crime drama. Obviously, Milch’s experience as a writer will be a key component, but for the record he’s not expected to serve as the True Detective showrunner (at this stage, there is no specified season 3 showrunner).
Jonah Hill and Emma Stone have set a date… to start filming their new Netflix sitcom! Maniac, based on a Norwegian series of the same title, is a darkly comic fantasy that leaps back and forth between a man committed to a mental institution and his dreamworld where he becomes everything from a millionaire playboy surrounded by bikini-clad groundskeepers to a daring, Hitler-killing war hero. Rubicon TV produced the series for the Norwegian small screen back in 2014, and also had a hand in Netflix’s first original series, Lilyhammer. Cary Fukunaga, another Netflix alum who directed their Golden Globe-nominated movie, Beasts of No Nation in 2015, will helm the entire 10-episode series.
On the Rich Eisen Show, Matthew McConaughey gave True Detective viewers hope that he might be returning to the series.

Twitter feeds don’t write themselves, people. With a core cast this large — and they don’t even all fit in this photo — it’s inevitable that at least one storyline will move a little too slowly for your liking, that you’ll find it difficult to warm to a character you were set up to hate (as well as to Scarlett’s hair extensions), and that you’ll agree with fellow fan and Yahoo TV Critic-at-Large Ken Tucker’s 7 Lessons ‘Nashville’ Could Learn From ‘Empire.’ But just like Ken, you’ll never not watch Nashville. As compulsively watchable as early seasons of The West Wing and as spectacularly off-key as the infamous Gilbert & Sullivan spoof on Studio 60, Aaron Sorkin’s three-season HBO series was wrong-headed in almost every respect, which was precisely why it proved so addictive.
Today’s category in the Yahooies!, Yahoo TV’s awards celebrating the best of the 2014-15 TV season including summer shows, celebrates those scenes that weren’t meant to make us laugh (at least not as much as we did).
Warning: This recap contains storyline and character spoilers for this week’s season finale of True Detective. With a season filled with red herrings and bewildering plot twists, it’s a good thing the True Detective finale was 90 minutes; the show needed at least that long to explain everything to us. And we did get plenty of answers (and plenty of action) in Season 2’s swan song. But if you were looking for a happy ending… well, you came to the wrong place.
Forget Crazy Aunt Sue and Creepy Uncle Bob! In a fictional, television world, you wouldn’t have to invite them to Thanksgiving dinner. You know, like Hannibal Lecter. Because we’re Yahoo TV and really do like to live in such a fictional world, we put our collective heads together to come up with the perfect cast of characters we’d like to have at our table… and why.
