We have already suggested that Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski should take the places of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson; the Internet is likewise weighing in.

True Detective was conceived as an anthology series, meaning that season two would pick up with a completely new story, not unlike American Horror Story. The Internet has decided to think up some pairs that could replace McConaughey and Harrelson for the next go-round, many of which can be found at the hashtag #TrueDetectiveSeason2. Suggestions have included the following:

Picard and Kirk

Lelaina and Vickie from Reality Bites

Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart 

Han and Lando

Pat Morita and Jay Leno

The Grady Twins

Natalie Portman and Winona Ryder from Black Swan

Elisabeth Moss and Holly Hunter
