True Detective is finally making its way back to HBO for its fourth season after being absent from the network for a number of years. The anthology criminal drama series made its debut in 2014. It has been marked by highs and lows during its run, with seasons alternating from being important (Season 1) to humiliating (Season 2). The most recent season debuted on television in 2019, and Mahershala Ali starred in it.
True Detective’s creator Nic Pizzolatto’s agreement with HBO came to an end after that season, which casts doubt on the show’s continued existence. However, in March of 2022, HBO announced that executive producer Barry Jenkins and writer-director Isaa López were working on a new version of True Detective for the network.
Production has begun on the upcoming season of True Detective, which its official title, Night Country, will know. It is not a lie that True D will be making a comeback. The following is everything that we currently know about True Detective: Night Country.
HBO made the announcement on November 8 that filming for the upcoming episode of True Detective, titled “Night Country,” would begin in Iceland, which will serve as a stand-in for Alaska, the setting of the season. Even if the photo’s background is unclear, it is obvious that the subject is a hockey rink in the HBO image of a clapper. The clapper announces that Issa López is, in fact, the director, as was previously speculated, and discloses that Florian Hoffmeister (Tár, The Terror) is the director of photography on the set.
HBO provided a sneak peek at the opening page of the screenplay via their Twitter account.

True Detective Season 4 Plotline
After spending the previous three seasons in warm locations such as Louisiana and Southern California, the upcoming fourth season will take place in chilly environments. The story takes place in Ennis, Alaska, a community located so far north that it has polar night. As the darkness of that long winter night begins to fall, the eight men who are responsible for operating the Tsalal Arctic Research Station disappear without a trace.
According to the official logline for the show on HBO, the two detectives working on the case are Liz Danvers (played by Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (played by Kali Reis). They “must confront their pasts and the dark realities hiding underneath the Arctic ice,” as the logline states. It sounds like an interesting take on the framework that Nic Pizzolatto built in Season 1, which was darkly macho and ambiguously supernatural.
Who Is Producing The Fourth Season Of True Detective?
Issa López, a Mexican filmmaker best known for the film Tigers Are Not Afraid, serves in multiple capacities throughout the series, including as the showrunner, executive producer, writer, and director of all episodes. Jodie Foster is not only appearing in the film, but she is also serving as an executive producer. Alongside Adele Romanski and Mark Ceryak, Moonlight filmmaker Barry Jenkins serves in an executive producing capacity for the film PASTEL, which is produced by Jenkins’ production business.
Chris Mundy, the showrunner for Ozark, and Alan Page Arriaga, a writer whose prior work includes an episode of Fear the Walking Dead dubbed in Spanish, are among the other executive producers for the project. Although they have administrative producer titles, Nic Pizzolatto, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Cary Joji Fukunaga are not engaged in the production of Season 4.
According to Deadline, producers Princess Daazhraii Johnson and Cathy Tagnak Rexford oversee an Iupiaq advisory council consulting on Alaska Native culture for the show. The council provides feedback and advice on many aspects of Alaska Native culture.
True Detective Season 4 Release Date
We do not currently have a release date, but if production is beginning now, we anticipate that the game will be available by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024. It would be exciting if it were released in January 2024, which would be five years after the conclusion of the third season.
Trailer True Detective Season 4
The show’s production has only just started, which means it will be entirely some time before a trailer is released; nonetheless, we will post it here when it is done.
True Detective Season 4 Cast
It should come as no surprise that True Detective: Night Country features an impressive ensemble cast. Jodie Foster, the winner of two Academy Awards, takes the lead role in the model, which also includes recognizable performers from HBO’s repertory players as well as Indigenous actors making their debuts on HBO. The second-billed star, Kali Reis, is a former professional boxer who made her cinematic debut in the thriller Catch the Fair One in 2021.
For her performance in that film, she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in the Best Female Lead category. According to HBO, she is also a motivational speaker, a supporter of the struggle for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, and someone who educates Indigenous women on how to protect themselves physically and vocally. She teaches these skills to the women in her community.
Here’s the cast, with character descriptions via Deadline.
Jodie Foster – Det. Liz Danvers
Kali Reis – Det. Evangeline Navarro
John Hawkes – Hank Prior, a police officer with old grudges hiding under a quiet surface.
