Director Jeremy Saulnier Departs from Season 3 of ‘True Detective’

A shocking revelation for True Detective fans, as director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) has unexpectedly pulled out of split directing duties with Nic Pizzolatto, due to reported scheduling issues.

Fans of the show will be saddened to learn that Saulnier, one of the most popular directors on the scene right now, only managed to direct two episodes, before parting ways with the show very recently.

All is not lost though, as he will be replaced by Daniel Sackheim (Game of Thrones) as co-director and executive producer of Season 3.
