True Detective season 4 officially in the works at HBO
Sources claim that it'll be set in the Arctic and star two female leads.
A fourth season of True Detective is officially in development at HBO, Variety has learned.
Subtitled True Detective: Night Country, major plot details are being kept tightly under wraps for now. Several sources have said it’s set to undergo major changes to its setting.
Reportedly it’s set to jump from the USA to the Arctic where it can sometimes be dark for an entire 24 hours and will also feature two female leads.
This will be the first outing of the critically-acclaimed crime drama without original creator Nic Pizzolatto at the helm who will instead be replaced by indie director Issa Lopez.
Lopez will write this entire fourth season, which is again expected to consist of eight episodes, and additionally direct the pilot.
Barry Jenkins, acclaimed director of the Academy-Award winning Moonlight and Amazon’s Underground Railroad series, will also join the series as an executive producer alongside Adele Romanski, and Mark Ceryak.
True Detective premiered in 2014 with a widely acclaimed first season that starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as two detectives investigating the cult-like murder of a sex worker in the mid-1990s.
It returned a year later for a second season set in present day L.A which received much more mixed reviews and a third in 2019 which was seen as a return to form by many.
