HBO has confirmed that Variety has learned through sources that a fourth “True Detective” season is in development.
At the moment, the next season is dubbed “True Detective: Night Country.” The narrative is being kept under wraps for the most part, although sources indicate that movie would take set in the Arctic, where the night may last up to 24 hours.
Additionally, it is speculated that the season will have two female leads. At the moment, no casting has been confirmed.
Issa López has been hired as the upcoming season’s writer and executive producer in addition to directing the pilot.
Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, and Pastel’s Mark Ceryak will executive produce. Pastel is now negotiating with HBO and HBO Max for a first-look contract.
Anonymous Content, which produced the show’s previous seasons, and numerous additional executive producers from previous seasons are also anticipated to join the project.
HBO declined to make a statement. It is not the first time the critically regarded program has had a multi-year hiatus between seasons.
The show’s third season, which starred Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff, premiered in 2019. Season 2 premiered in 2015 and starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey starred in the first season in 2014.
“True Detective” has been nominated for 23 Emmy Awards and won five, all of which were for the first season.
Previously, López wrote, produced, and directed films such as “Todo Mal,” “Tigers Are Not Afraid,” and “Three Sundays.” In February, it was rumored that she would write, produce, and direct the HBO Max feature “The Girl With a Thousand Names.“
Rand Holston Management, M88, and Hirsch, Wallerstein represent her.
