Step aside Hannibal Lecter because Jodie Foster is ready to pursue a new serial killer.
True Detective’s new season is set in Ennis, Alaska follows detectives Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) while investigating the disappearance of eight men operating out of the Tsalal Arctic Research Station. In addition to Foster and Reis, season four stars Fiona Shaw, Finn Bennett, Isabella Star Lablanc, Aka Niviâna, Anna Lambe, Joel D. Montgrand, Christopher Eccleston, and John Hawkes.
You can see the first trailer of True Detective: Night Country divided from Warner Bros. Discovery below:
“Some people come to Alaska to flee, to get away from something. Sometimes they come here to look for something,” says Foster in the trailer. “Sometimes they find it.”
The trailer shows the tension between Foster’s Liz Danvers and Reis’ Evangeline Navarro as they work together to solve the case. In the final scene, Foster wanders through the snow at night with the frozen ice cracking beneath his feet.
Showrunner Issa López is the writer, executive producer and director of all episodes of the series. True Detective: Night Country is the first installment in the series without its creator, Nic Pizzolatto.
Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson played the main detectives in Season 1 of True Detective which premiered in 2014, while Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn starred in Season 2 the following year. Mahershala Ali took over for the third season with his performance as Wayne Hays.
True Detective was a huge hit when it was first released in 2014., but reviews for the second season were less kind. We felt that Season 3, which premiered in 2019, helped put the series back on track.
True Detective: Night Country will arrive on Max (HBO Max’s new name after its change) sometime in 2023.
