Starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, “True Detective” season 3 is coming back as HBO’s limited series. Creator and showrunner Nic Pizzolatto will also direct with Jeremy Saulnier who focused people’s eyeballs in his work horror-noir Green Room last year.
Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of programming, praised Pizzolatto “Nic has written truly remarkable scripts,” he continued, “With his ambitious vision and Mahershala Ali and Jeremy Saulnier aboard, we are excited to embark on the next installment of True Detective.”
Pizzolatto is the main writer for the three seasons and partnered with David Milch in episode 4. “I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy,” Pizzolatto said, “I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story.”
In this season, it follows a consistent style, telling an intruding but terrifying story in the center of the Ozarks, also unveiling an age-long mystery in three-time periods separately. Performed by Ali, the leading role Wayne Hays is a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas, he will step by step solve all troublesome issues and demonstrate his enviable talents. Earlier this year, Ali won Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor in Moonlight with his excellent performance.
