Renewed: True Detective
It's official. HBO drama is coming back -and it's off to the Ozarks.
Season 3 of True Detective is proceeding, according to reports today.
HBO confirmed late Thursday that the next instalment will tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks (where a current Netflix series with Jason Bateman and Laura Linney is already entrenched). A mystery will deepen over decades and play out in three separate time periods.
Previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) will star as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.
Creator Nic Pizzolatto will be the sole writer of the series, for all but episode 4 which he co-wrote with David Milch (Deadwood).
“I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala” and executive producer Jeremy Saulnier, said Pizzolatto in a statement. “I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story.”
Fingers crossed it can regain the glory of Season 1 with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, after Season 2 failed to excite.
