True Detective is back on the case with a new chapter in the anthology crime drama. While True Detective season 4 is officially named True Detective: Night Country, almost everything about the program is new, from the characters to the showrunner. One thing is certain: At the heart of it all is a frightening enigma for the characters (and viewers) to ponder.
True Detective’s first season, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, premiered in 2014 and quickly became a smash sensation. True Detective season 2 premiered in 2015 and starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch, and Kelly Reilly.
True Detective Season 3 premiered in 2019 after the show was taken over by new writers and starred Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy, Ray Fisher, and Mamie Gummer. So here’s all we know so far, from its release date to whether there will be a trailer update, cast, and plot.
True Detective Season 4 Release Date
True Detective season 4 was officially ordered to series by HBO on June 28, but no release date has been announced. True Detective: Night Country was included in HBO’s 2023 preview video, so it was assumed that the next season would premiere in 2023, but many outlets have stated (and a source verified to What to Watch) that the show will now be delayed until sometime in 2024.
True Detective Season 4 Cast
True Detective has always had huge celebrities leading each season, and Jodie Foster is one of the leads in True Detective season 4. Foster is a Hollywood classic, having appeared in films such as Taxi Driver, The Accused, The Silence of the Lambs, Contact, Inside Man, and, most recently, The Mauritanian since she was a child.
Foster began her career in television, but True Detective will be her first major part since the 1970s. Foster portrays Liz Danvers, one of the major detectives on the case, in True Detective season 4.
Evangeline Navarro, the other detective, will be played by Kali Reis. Reis is a professional boxer and campaigner for Indigenous rights who made her acting debut in the 2021 indie film Catch the Fair One.
Her performance in the film earned her a special Jury Mention at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival as well as a nomination for Best Female Lead at the 2022 Film Independent Spirit Awards. It also definitely piqued the interest of the True Detective team.
Season 4 cast members include John Hawkes (Winter’s Bone), Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who), Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve), Finn Bennett (The Nevers), Anna Lambe (Three Pines), Joel D. Montgrand (Altered Carbon), and newcomers Aka Niviâna and Isabella Star Lablanc.
Hawkes plays Hank Prior, a police officer with past grudges hidden beneath a calm exterior. Eccleston plays Ted Corsaro, the regional chief of police and a political beast with a lengthy past with Liz Danvers. Rose Aguineau, a survivor with a dark past, is played by Shaw.
Bennett plays Liz Danvers’ protege and apprentice, Peter Prior. Lambe is cast as Kayla Malee, a young nurse who has little patience for anyone who bothers her family.
True Detective Season 4 Plot
The following is the official synopsis for HBO’s True Detective: Night Country: When Ennis, Alaska’s long winter night falls, the eight men who run the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace.
Detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro must confront their pasts and the dark secrets hidden beneath the Arctic ice in order to solve the case.

Other True Detective Season 4 Crew
Foster and Reis will be the major characters on screen, but there is an incredible array of talent behind the camera as well.
The new season’s showrunner/writer/executive producer and director is Issa López. In her home in Mexico, López has established a reputation as a writer/director with films such as Tigers Are Not Afraid and Casi Divas.
Barry Jenkins serves as an executive producer alongside López behind the scenes. Jodie Foster and the original True Detective team of Nic Pizzolatto, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Cary Joji Fukunaga are also executive producers.
