HBO’s one of the top fan favourite crime drama series ‘True Detective’ has already made 3 long season runs. This interesting series has gained many loyal fans over the years and top TRP rating. So the producers of the show are already working on its 4th instalment. The series first aired on HBO on January 12, 2014. The story revolves around different detectives who are working together to solve a series of unconnected murder mysteries.
Created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, the series so far has had great success, and audiences are asking for more. Especially after the 3rd season, fans are more eager to see the stories of gritty detectives. But is season 4 really happening? Who all are going to be in this upcoming season? When will it come out? Here are all the juicy details about True Detective Season 4.
True Detective Season 4 Release Date
Season 3 aired on January 13, 2019. The 8 long episode series ended on February 24, 2019. And since then, it’s been 3 years that we haven’t gotten any more seasons. Back in 2019, Pizzolatto did, in fact, tell the press that he’s been working on the next season, but he never confirmed it. Later in January 2021, Pizzolatto started working for HBO and exited his FX deal. There is some speculation regarding the release date of True Detective and that the next season is expected to hit next year. Although, there is not any confirmation from the creators of the series. If the creators are working on the story, it will take about a year to complete the series.
True Detective Season 4 Cast
The season 3 cast was full of A-listed actors and actresses. The show included people like Academy Award-winner Mahershala Ali (Detective Wayne Hays) along with, Carmen Ejogo (Amelia Reardon), Stephen Dorff (Roland West), Scoot McNairy (Tom Purcell), and Ray Fisher (Henry Hays). However, ‘True Detective’ is an anthology series, which means that in the next season, we will see a completely new set of a-listed actors and actresses. But as of now, the cast of the series has not been confirmed yet.
True Detective Season 4 Plot
Season 3 closed its curtains on a melancholy and heartbreaking note. Detective Hays solved Julie Purcell’s death case but couldn’t track down the woman whose case haunted him the most. Season 4 will likely have a similar story background with a troubled cop, just like the previous seasons. Although the plot of the upcoming season has not been revealed yet, fans can still speculate that season 4 will also play with minds and with different timelines. According to sources, HBO has hired new writers for this upcoming season which can only mean that the story may have a completely new arc altogether.
