“Creatively, ratings-wise, it did everything that we wanted it to do,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys tells Deadline. “It’s up to 8 million viewers an episode, we were thrilled with the review, I think fans have really liked it. Obviously acting is superb. I was very, very, very happy with all aspects of it.” What about a fourth season? “I think we are going to handle it the same way as the last one — if Nic (Pizzolatto) has an idea that he is excited about, we will talk about it but not rushing into anything,” Bloys said. “I think Nic is enjoying the current success of the show and maybe has something percolating but nothing has come to us yet.” ALSO: Stephen Dorff is quietly the best thing about Season 3.
