HBO has released the second full trailer for the third season of True Detective with Mahershala Ali at the forefront of the story.
Set in the heart of the Ozarks, a disturbing crime occurs and a mystery that deepens over decades plays out in the three separate time periods.
Ali will portray Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas with Stephen Dorff as his partner. Carmen Ejogo plays Ali’s wife and Scoot McNairy will play Tom, a father who suffers a terrible loss that ties his fate to that of two state police detectives over 10 years.
Jeremy Saulnier (“Green Room,” “Blue Ruin”) will co-direct alongside series creator Nic Pizzolatto with Pizzolatto penning all the episodes except for the fourth episode which he’s co-writing with “Deadwood” creator David Milch. Pizzolatto, who also serves as showrunner, executive produces with Saulnier and returning executive producers Scott Stephens.
The show will premiere in the US on January 13th
