While it’s been pretty much universally known for the past few months now, HBO has finally moved to confirm that, yes, True Detective is indeed returning for a third season.
Furthermore, again matching previous reports and rumours, Moonlight and Marvel’s Luke Cage’s Mahershala Ali is set to headline this new season, with Nic Pizzolatto working on the story and script.
One piece of nice new information, though, is that Jeremy Saulnier has been brought in to direct. As well as helming Blue Ruin, Saulnier will be best known to genre fans for the fantastic neo Nazi-driven, Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin-starring Green Room.
Courtesy of Variety, the early word is that “the next installment tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.”
Ali has landed the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Arkansas.
Expect more on True Detective’s return as we get it.
