True Detective season 3 trailer haunts Mahershala Ali for decades

True Detective Mahershala Ali

After crafting a second season of his HBO crime anthology series True Detective that wasn't very well received, Nic Pizzolatto is taking the series back to its roots with the upcoming third season. Like the highly praised first season, season 3 centers on detectives in the southern U.S. who work a case that troubles them for decades.

This time around the setting is Arkansas and Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff star as the detectives who have to deal with 

a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Ali and Dorff's co-stars include Carmen Ejogo, Scoot McNairy, Mamie Gummer, Ray Fisher, Rhys Wakefield, Michael Greyeyes, Jon Tenney, Sarah Gadon, Brandon Flynn, Michael Graziadei, Emily Nelson, and Jodi Balfour.

Ali's character and the impact this case has on him are the focus on the newly released, moody trailer for True Detective season 3, which will premiere on HBO in January 2019.

The first two episodes of this season were directed by Jeremy Saulnier (MURDER PARTY / BLUE RUIN / GREEN ROOM). The rest were directed by David Sackheim and Pizzolatto. Pizzolatto also wrote every episode himself, with Deadwood's David Milch earning a co-writing credit on the fourth episode.

As a fan of the first season who still hasn't gotten around to watching the second, I am very much looking forward to True Detective season 3.
