The True Detective finale was so popular last night it broke HBO Go. HBO's on-demand streaming portal succumbed to the stress of viewers attempting to watch the finale that also aired on HBO's main network.
"Due to overwhelmingly popular demand for #TrueDetective, we've been made aware of an issue affecting some users. Please try again soon," the official HBO Go Twitter account shared at close to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
As of 10 a.m. EST on Monday, the problems were resolved. "The issues affecting HBO GO last night have been resolved. Thank you for being patient," HBO Go tweeted. Yet some users were still encountering problems with the streaming service the morning after the Sunday, March 9, season finale.
The first season of True Detective starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and debuted to solid reviews. The buzz built throughout the eight-episode season and reached new heights after McConaughey took home an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.
Season two hasn't officially been announced, but creator Nic Pizzolatto told HitFix it will be about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system." One thing that has been confirmed is that McConaughey is out. "I won't be back for season two. Season one was finite," the actor said backstage at the Oscars.
