True Detective Season 3 Is Being Revived with Deadwood's David Milch

True Detective refuses to die despite the fact many viewers would probably prefer it.

According to Entertainment Weekly, creator Nic Pizzolatto has written a couple of scripts for a potential third season -- despite the fact HBO hasn't officially ordered more episodes of the anthology series, which received critical acclaim in its first season but universal ridicule in its second.

However, there might be some good news on the horizon for the beleaguered show. EW also reports that Pizzolatto has roped Deadwood and NYPD Blue creator David Milch into his attempt at a third round in the ring. Having someone as experienced and talented as Milch by his side will definitely help Pizzolatto and improve the show's writing, but the extent of Milch's involvement is unclear because the collaboration is still in the early stages.

HBO president takes the blame for True Detective Season 2

Unfortunately, this new development likely also halts any forward momentum Milch's other high-profile project, the long-gestating Deadwood film, had. The film was rumored for years following the expensive show's untimely demise in 2006, but HBO confirmed in January 2016 that a script had been greenlit. Star Ian McShane, who next appears in the upcoming Starz drama American Gods, recently confirmed the existence of said script, but couldn't say much more.

"They're hoping it will [happen]," McShane told Newsweek. "Whether it's just pie-in-the-sky bullsh-t, I don't know. There is a script. It's being rewritten, but they could say it's being rewritten for another 10 years."

Milch has also gone through some personal difficulties in recent years. Last year, it was reported that he had gambled away more than $100 million on horse racing and was in significant debt to the tune of $17 million.

Hulu Picks Up Sarah Silverman Series I Love You, America

Hulu is teaming up with Funny or Die to bring you a new 10-episode series from comedienne Sarah Silverman, the streaming service announced Monday.

The show's working title is I Love You, America and will allow Silverman to explore the political and emotional rifts between people in America, while also having a good time. The official logline for the show, which was ordered straight to series, says that Silverman is "looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously," and do it all in a hilarious way, of course.

Silverman is teaming up with Funny or Die founders Adam McKay and Will Ferrell to produce the series. Amy Zvi will also act as executive producer.

What's new on Hulu in April?

The comedienne and actress was a very vocal Democrat during the 2016 presidential election. At first she was a huge supporter of Bernie Sanders, and then quickly changed to Hillary Clinton once Clinton won the Democratic nomination. Silverman made headlines during the Democratic National Convention when she "went off book" during her speech and called out the "Bernie or Bust" protestors in the audience.

Considering Silverman's public liberal views, I Love You, America will work to bridge the gap between people on the left and the more conservative voters who supported Donald Trump during the election.

Hulu has not yet set a premiere date for the series.
