True Detective Season 4: Storyline

“True Detective” was treated as an anthology series in the previous 3 seasons, always a different case with new characters. In season 4, Danvers and Navarro must face the darkness they carry and confront the haunted truths that lie buried beneath the eternal ice. The new episodes are set in Alaska.

In previous seasons, investigators often drifted into a dark past of victims and potential perpetrators. New clues brought light to the unsolved, dark murder cases, which did not let go of the investigators.

True Detective Season 4: Cast

The new investigator duo for Season 4 has already been found. Hollywood star Jodie Foster will embody the role of 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 and won a total of five Emmys. Season 2, starring Colin Farrell (“The North Water”), Vince Vaughn (“F Is for Family”) and Rachel McAdams, on the other hand, was seen as a disappointment.

True Detective” last aired in 2019 with Season 3, which starred Mahershala Ali (“Marvel’s Luke Cage”) and Stephen Dorff.

True Detective Season 4: Production

Online magazine Deadline reports that season 4 of the gritty crime series will see some changes. After series creator Nic Pizzolatto did have some ideas for a sequel after the end of Season 3, he left the project to work again with McConaughey on “Redeemer,” whose production, however, the network FX has stopped.

So Pizzolatto is not involved in the production of the 4th season. Instead, the network is relying on Mexican director Issa López, who previously directed “True Detective,” for “Night Country.” 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.

Is there a trailer for “True Detective: Night Country”?
