HBO has finally revealed the first look at True Detective Season 3, its long-awaited continuation of the anthology series. The new season sees Academy Award winner, Mahershala Ali fronting the new series, which is set in Arkansas and takes place across three separate time periods.
Ali headlines the new season and is supported by Stephen Dorff, Carmen Ejogo as well as Scoot McNairy. The series will feature episodes directed by a trio of directors, namely Jeremy Saulnier, Nic Pizzolato and Daniel Sackheim.
Questions did loom if HBO was looking to continue True Detective following a drop in ratings for the follow-up season starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Rachel McAdams. However with the services of an Academy Award winner like Ali, it would seem that True Detective Season 3 may buck the trend.
The series arrives on HBO in January 2019. Check out the trailer after the jump.
