There is no release date for “True Detective: Night Country” yet. We don’t expect the new episodes to come until early 2023 at the earliest .
“True Detective: Night Country”: plot
As an anthology series, “True Detective” has always dealt with a different case with new characters in the previous 3 seasons. In Season 4, Danvers and Navarro must confront the darkness within them and the cursed truths that lie buried beneath the eternal ice. The new episodes are set in Alaska.
In the previous seasons, the investigators often ended up in a dark past of victims and potential perpetrators. New clues shed light on the unsolved, grim murder cases that the investigators couldn’t let go of.
“True Detective: Night Country”: cast
The new detective duo for season 4 has already been found. Hollywood star Jodie Foster will play Detective Liz Danvers . Boxer and indie actress Kali Reis (“Catch the Fair One”) will play Detective Evangeline Navarro.
The first season, starring Matthew McConaughey (“Interstellar”) and Woody Harrelson, was a hit with critics and viewers alike, earning a total of five Emmy Awards. Season 2, starring Colin Farrell (“The North Water”), Vince Vaughn (” F Is for Family “) and Rachel McAdams, was a disappointment.
“True Detective” last aired in 2019 with Season 3 which starred Mahershala Ali (” Marvel’s Luke Cage “) and Stephen Dorff.
“True Detective: Night Country”: production
The online magazine Deadline reports that Season 4 of the dark crime series will bring some changes. After series creator Nic Pizzolatto had some ideas for a sequel after the end of season 3, he left the project to work again with McConaughey on “Redeemer,” which network FX has stopped producing.
So Pizzolatto is not involved in the production of Season 4. Instead, the broadcaster for “Night Country” relies on the Mexican director Issa López, who had already directed “True Detective”. López will also serve as a writer and executive producer. In addition, Oscar winner Barry Jenkins (” The Underground Railroad “, “Moonlight”) is another executive producer on board.
