Los Angeles: Oscar winning actor Matthew McConaughey says that he will not return for the second season of crime drama series `True Detective`.

"No, I won`t be back for season two. Season one was finite," a website quoted the 44-year-old as saying.

McConaughey won the best actor award for playing an AIDS patient in `Dallas Buyers Club` at the 86th Academy Awards held here Sunday.

The actor even joked about the Sunday episode of the TV show and said: "It`s probably airing right now. Has anyone seen it? I made the thing...and I`m not sure what happens."

`True Detective` revolves around the lives of two detectives - Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (played by Woody Harrelson) and how their lives got entangled during a 17-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.
