A new case is on the way for True Dective. HBO, as Variety confirms, is developing a fourth season of the Emmy-winning detective anthology. Oscar-winning Barry Jenkins (The Underground Railroad) will executive produce the fourth season, which is tentatively titled True Detective: Night Country. According to rumors, the season will have two female protagonists and will be set in the Arctic, where the night can last more than 24 hours.
Issá Lopez will write the new season and direct the premiere. It will also serve as an EP alongside Jenkins. Lopez is a Mexican director who has directed several acclaimed films, including 2017’s Tigers Are Not Afraid. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto, who wrote or co-wrote every episode of the previous three seasons, is currently not connected to season 4.
True Detective last aired in 2019, with Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff leading the season three cast. Her debut season, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, was a critical and audience success, winning a total of five Emmys. Season 2, however, was seen as a disappointment, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Rachel McAdams starring.
Will Nic Pizzolatto not be there?
Recall that just Nic Pizzolatto he stated some time ago that he had an idea for a fourth season which, however, has not been followed up. She then went on to collaborate with McConaughey on Redeemer, an FX project with a general deal with FX Productions and 20th Television. The series was not resumed and Pizzolatto found himself in the middle of negotiating an exit from that deal. Finally, we remind you that the first season of True Detective was aired in absolute first vision on Sky Atlantic from 3 to 24 October 2014. The second season from 29 June to 15 August 2015, the third season from 14 January 2019.
