We first reported last year that HBO was pitching new writers for the fourth season of “True Detective.” Creator Nic Pizzolatto remains involved as an executive producer, along with season 1 alumni Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Cary Joji Fukunaga. In addition to writing and directing, however, Issa López (“Tigers Are Not A Fear”) will direct the ship as the new showrunner, with Alan Page Arriaga also writing the screenplay – and executive producer with Oscar winner Barry Jenkins (“Moonlight”).
The cast of “True Detective: Night Country” is shaping up to be really intriguing, and with Pizzolatto and HBO having agreed to part ways after returning to season 3 form, López, Foster and company have maybe just the breath of fresh Alaskan night air the series needed. Variety’s report also indicates that HBO has invited Daazhraii Johnson and Tagnak Rexford to “lead an Iñupiaq advisory board to consult on the Alaskan indigenous culture featured in the show.”
Here is the official synopsis for “True Detective: Night Country:”
As the winter night drags on in Ennis, Alaska, the six men running the Tsalal Arctic Research Station disappear without a trace. To solve the case, detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry within them, while digging into the haunting truths that are buried under the ice. the eternal.
“True Detective: Night Country” is currently in pre-production and doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’ll let you know.
