When Rustin Cohle, played by Matthew McConaughey, said that “time is a flat circle,” he wasn’t lying. Deadline reported in 2017 that HBO was in talks with new writers to produce True Detective season 4. This was the third attempt by the premium content provider to recapture the lightning they managed to bottle in 2014.
Now, not only do we have concrete evidence that True Detective: Night Country is currently in production, with Academy Award winners Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and Issa Lopez (Tigers Are Not Afraid) attached, but we also know that Jodie Foster (Taxi Driver, The Accused, The Silence of the Lambs), who won an Academy Award for her performance in The Silence of the Lambs, and actress and former boxing champion Kali Reis will serve as the film’s leads (Catch The Fair One).
True Detective Season 4 Status Information
Season 4 of True Detective has been formally announced as of late June 2022. Even so, there is still no assurance that it will air because these new episodes may not be good enough for HBO, which could happen at any time in the future (a la failed Game of Thrones prequel).
Casey Bloys said, “Quality is what’s going to guide us,” probably making a covert reference to True Detective season 2. (more on this later).
Therefore, “we’re not going to do something just to do it” if we end up with scripts that we don’t think are representative or are of a high enough quality.
True Detective Season 4 Release Date
An official release date hasn’t been set as of yet because True Detective season 4 is still in the planning stages. In fact, aside from the fact that pre-production is starting right now, we have no idea how long HBO’s production will take.
The second season of the critically panned anthology series True Detective, starring Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, was famously blamed for its shortcomings on a hurried schedule, which was obviously detrimental to the anthology series’ main plot and other aspects.
True Detective Season 4 Storyline
Variety claims that True Detective: Night Country’s story will take place in the Arctic, where the night can last for more than 24 hours.
The six men who run the Tsalal Arctic Research Station disappear without a trace when the long winter night descends on Ennis, Alaska. Detectives Liz Danvers (played by Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (TBA) will have to face the darkness they harbour inside of them and delve into the haunted truths that are buried beneath the eternal ice in order to solve the case.

True Detective Season 4 Trailer
True Detective season 4 (obviously) lacks an official trailer, just like the release date, but we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as HBO posts one online.
