The premiere of True Detective: Night Country starring Jodie Foster and Kali Reis has been pushed back to 2024.
True Detective fans will have to wait a little longer before the premiere of True Detective: Night Country. Although the long-awaited follow-up to the anthology crime series didn’t have a concrete release date, trailers claimed it would be released this year.
The premiere of True Detective: Night Country has been pushed back to 2024 with HBO confirming to Deadline that it will launch in January. A reason for the shift wasn’t given, but we’ve seen a number of movies and TV shows pushed back due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Set during Alaska’s long night, True Detective: Night Country stars Jodie Foster as Liz Danvers, a detective who teams up with Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) to solve the disappearance of six men. In addition to Foster and Reis, Night Country stars Fiona Shaw, Finn Bennett, Isabella Star Lablanc, Aka Niviâna, Anna Lambe, and Joel D. Montgrand with Christopher Eccleston, and John Hawkes. Issa López serves as showrunner of True Detective: Night Country and also wrote and directed all the episodes. True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto isn’t involved this time around as he parted ways with HBO, but he is credited as an executive producer.
The first season of True Detective starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson and remains one of my favourite seasons of television. The second season brought Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Vince Vaughn onboard, but received mixed reviews compared to the first. The third season fared better with a story revolving around Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy, and Ray Fisher. It’s been a little over four years since the release of the last season, so I’m more than ready for another True Detective mystery. Hopefully the wait will have been worth it.
“When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the eight men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace,” reads the official description. “To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.” True Detective: Night Country will debut in January 2024.
