Jeremy Saulnier Exits True Detective Season 3

HBO’s True Detective suffers yet another setback.

This week, The Hollywood Reporter reported that director and executive producer Jeremy Saulnier has exited the show after completing only two episodes. Saulnier was supposed to split directing duties with Nic Pizzolatto, the shows creator.

HBO confirmed the news with a statement.

“Director and executive producer Jeremy Saulnier has completed the first two episodes of True Detective season 3 and will be departing the production due to scheduling issues. Daniel Sackheim has come on board as a director and executive producer for the series alongside series creator and director Nic Pizzolatto.”

Daniel Sackheim is best known for his work in FX’s The Americans.

The third season of True Detective stars Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy, Mamie Gummer and Ray Fisher. It is set to debut in 2019 on HBO.
