It’s Official: True Detective Season 3 Gets The Green Light


According to Hollywood Reporter, Season three will tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

As previously announced, Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) will topline season three as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.

“I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy. I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story,” Pizzolatto, who has an overall deal with HBO, said Thursday in a statement.

True Detective Season 1 was maybe the best season of television known to mankind. Season 2 was kind of like that drunken hookup you had that one night in college with a close friend. It happened. It sucked. Nobody really likes to talk about it. That being said, I’m absolutely pumped for Season 3.
