After viewers of beloved HBO show True Detective spent months turning the program into its own meme, Irish actor Colin Farrell has put the jokes out to pasture by announcing that he is in fact part of #TrueDetectiveSeason2.

The actor spoke with Irish paper the Sunday World, confirming his excitement over becoming a part of the second season's cast. Farrell has no further news on other cast members, but does know that they are shooting "in the environs of Los Angeles."

"I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot," he said. "I know very little about it, but we're shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids."

Rolling Stone notes that "Elisabeth Moss, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch are all rumored to be interested or involved in some way." Creator Nic Pizzolatto has said there will be three leads this season instead of two, so let the speculation continue.
