In the first season of “True Detective,” created by writer Nick Pizzolatto, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson played two Louisiana police detectives who are involved in a multi-year investigation of a disturbing serial killer. The first season was praised, especially for its performances and gripping plot, and the series was renewed for a second season starring Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch. While the second season received mixed reviews, the series was eventually renewed for a third season after a short hiatus, starring Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali.
This is the first season to receive a subtitle, and the first to be titled by another author. Pizzolatto, who wrote the first three seasons, was originally going to do a new series on FX called The Redeemer, in which he was to reunite with McConaughey. The series was canceled before it went into production, and it was reported last year that Pizzolatto wanted to break the deal with the network. Pizzolatto will be the executive producer of “True Detective: Night Country” together with Foster, McConaughey, Harrelson, director Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Mark Seryak, Alan Page Arriaga, Marie Jo Winkler and director of the first season of “True Detective” Carey Joji Fukunaga.
The release date of True Detective: Night Country is still unknown.
