“It is going to be set here in Austin next season. We have a sneak peek of True Detective season two,” Kimmel introduced the spoof.
"Next season will follow two completely different detectives on a completely different case. There's been much speculation about which actors will be tapped to play those roles, and I'm excited to announce here at Southwest the identity of those actors, and also to announce that it is going to be set here in Austin next season,” he also said, E!
