HBO ends rumours by confirming fourth run of True Detective with Jodie Foster

True Detective’s critically acclaimed first season

US cablenet HBO has ordered a fourth instalment of its anthology crime drama True Detective.

The new iteration, True Detective: Night Country, comes from showrunner, writer and director Issa López and will be filmed in Iceland.

Set in Alaska, the project stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as detectives trying to solve the case of six men who vanish while working at the Tsalal Arctic Research Station.

The first and second instalments of the series premiered in 2014 and 2015, respectively, before the third season debuted in early 2019.

Rumours had been swirling for several months that HBO was poised to order a new season, but today’s announcement is the first time HBO has confirmed the straight-to-series order.

“We are tremendously excited to return to the True Detective franchise and to be working with the multi-talented Issa López, whose singular vision for her Night Country instalment will be beautifully realised with Jodie Foster and Kali Reis in the starring roles,” said Francesca Orsi, executive VP for HBO programming.

In addition to López, executive producers on the project include Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Mark Ceryak through the production banner Pastel. Anonymous Content, Mari Jo Winkler, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Cary Joji Fukunaga and Nic Pizzolatto are also executive producers, in addition to Foster and writer Alan Page Arriaga.

McConaughey and Woody Harrelson starred in the show’s first season, while the sophomore season was led by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly and Vince Vaughn. Season three starred Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff.
