“True Detective” could return to our screens with a season 4 which would be in preparation at HBO. The third season of the series aired in 2019.
The ups and downs of True Detective
From its first season offered by HBO in 2014, True Detective has become a reference in the world of the series. then carried by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, with Nic Pizzolatto writing and Cary Fukunaga directing, the show left its mark. It must be said that McConaughey’s hallucinatory performance had a lot to do with this police intrigue which takes place in Louisiana at two distinct periods: in 1995 and 2012.
Faced with this big success, HBO logically ordered a second season – thus making the series an anthology (each season tells a different story with new characters). Unfortunately, this one, despite a very good cast (notably Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn) did not have the same effect. Very different from the atmosphere of its predecessor, this season 2 was rejected by the public and a majority of critics. However, the proposal was, in our opinion, of good quality.
We thought then that it was (already) over True Detective. Corn the revival took place in 2019 with this third season led by Mahershala Ali, Stephen Dorff, and Carmen Ejogo. Again True Detective received high praise. Only HBO did not want to rush to propose a season 4 which should still arrive soon.
A season 4 three years later?
According to the sources of variety, new episodes of True Detective would be well under development. For now, this fourth season would be titled True Detective: Night Country. The story should then unfold in the arctic during the polar night, a time of year when it is dark almost all day. Christopher Nolan had already used such a setting for insomnia (2002), but at the opposite period, during the polar day.
On the casting side, nothing has been revealed yet except that this season could be led by two female characters. Finally, Issa López would be in charge of writing the season and directing the pilot, while the name of Barry Jenkins is mentioned for a producer role. No broadcast date is not yet announced for season 4 of True Detective.
