When â€œTrue Detectiveâ€� 1st aired in January 2014, it took the miniseries world by storm. Audiences were captivated by the gritty, dark, intellectual crime drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and couldnâ€™t wait for more.Â
Well, more came in the form of Season schedule 2 â€• and it didnâ€™t deliver. Although actors Colin FarrellÂ and Rachel McAdamsÂ gave solid performances with the source material they had, the eight-episode arc just fell flat (as a circle).Â
Now, Season schedule 3 has officially been greenlit by HBO and details are being released. The- new episodes willÂ star recent Oscar winner Mahershala Ali in the direct role of Wayne Hays, a state cops detective from Northwest Arkansas. According to The- Hollywood Reporter, the tale will take place in the heart of the Ozarks and focus on â€œa mystery in that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.â€�Â
Original showrunner Nic Pizzolatto penned the season, with assist from â€œDeadwoodâ€� scribe David Milch, who co-wrote the fourth episode. Pizzolatto will moreover direct alongside relative newcomer Jeremy Saulnier and serve as executive producer with Saulnier, Scott Stephens, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey and Season schedule 1 director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown will moreover be credited as executive producers.
â€œIâ€™m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy,â€� Pizzolatto asserted in a acknowledgment Thursday. â€œI hope the material can do justice to their talents, and weâ€™re all very excited to tell this story.â€�Â
Letâ€™s pray in that Mahershala + Ozarks + mysteryÂ = compelling, favorable TV. (We have a acceptable feeling it might?)
