This news comes to us from Variety and I think this is very good news for the series.
True Detective has been on a downward trajectory ever since the first season.
None of the other seasons of the show were really able to recapture the magic of that first season of True Detective.
That said, the third season did come close.
It starred Mahershala Ali and I really did enjoy it and his performance, but there was just something truly special about that first season.
True Detective Season 4 on HBO is happening
It’s been revealed that the fourth season of True Detective is going to be called True Detective: Night Country.
There’s no word yet on what’s going to happen in this fourth season.
However, it has been revealed that the majority of Season 4 will take place in the Artic, which where it can be nighttime for a very long time!
It’s also believed that the show will feature two female leads.
There’s been no official casting information.
