In 2014, the first season of the anthology series True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson brilliantly relaunched the way of making noir thrillers in series. True Detective season 2 had left more than one fan on the floor despite its qualities, and season 3 was content to do the job. Since 2019, the dream of seeing a season 4 come to fruition has been fading day by day.
Head to the Arctic
And when no one really expected it, HBO issued a press release announcing that a season 4 of Nic Pizzolatto's cult series is currently in development. For now, its working title is Night Country and it will be set in the Arctic where the nights can last more than 24 hours. New, the main characters of the series will be two women.
Without Nic Pizzolatto
If the cast of this new season is not yet known, we know that Issa López, the director of the film They are back, should be in charge of writing all the episodes and directing at least one. Barry Jenkins, Oscar-winning director of Moonlight, will serve as showrunner. Note that Nic Pizzolatto, original creator and screenwriter of the previous three seasons, has obviously been completely excluded from the creative process for this season 4.
