The inaugural run of HBO’s much obsessed-over not-so-buddy cop drama, True Detective, came to an end yesterday.

And though we’ve got mixed emotions regarding that final hour—don’t worry, no spoilers here—we’re sad to see it go, especially since the news broke last week that McConaughey won’t be returning for season two.

Though that begs the question: if the dysfunctional duo is breaking up, will a new pair of misfits be taking up the True D reins next time around? Because if so, we’ve got a few suggestions for who might fit the bill.
