HBO's True Detective posted its best numbers for its first-season finale on Sunday with 3.5 million viewers at 9 p.m.
The 3.5 million for the anthology series was up 50% from the show's premiere in January; across three plays on March 9, True Detective drew 4.9 million viewers, also a series best. The finale also served to overwhelm HBO Go's presentation.
The show's first eight-episode season averaged a gross audience of 11 million viewers, HBO's most-watched freshman series since Six Feet Under in 2001.
Thought it hasn't been officially renewed for a second season, True Detective is expected to return with an entirely new cast and storyline, much like FX's American Horror Story franchise.
