HBO pulls the trigger on a release date for True Detective Season 3

Are you ready to get your sleuth on? HBO certainly hopes so, because the premiere cable network has announced that TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 will officially arrive on January 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT for the start of a highly-anticipated eight-episode run. For the upcoming season, HIDDEN FIGURES and GREEN BOOK stars Mahershala Ali stars as Detectvie Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas who finds himself trapped in grim mystery alongside his co-stars, Carmen Ejogo and Stephen Dorff. When the new season kicks off, Dorff will play Roland West, an Arkansas State Investigator. Meanwhile, Ejogo will arrive as Amelia Reardon, an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.

Set to direct the first two episodes of the season is Jeremy Saulnier (GREEN ROOM, BLUE RUIN), who HBO replaced with Daniel Sackheim (THE GLASS HOUSE, THE WALKING DEAD) for the remaining six. Not being one to hog all the glory, Sackheim has divided his workload with series creator/executive producer Nic Pizzolatto, marking the filmmaker's directorial debut. Joining Pizzolatto for his role as an executive producer on the program are Scott Stephens, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Cary Joji Fukunaga, Steve Golin, Bard Dorros, and Richard Brown. Recently, Fukunaga was recognized by fans for his brilliant work on Netflix's MANIAC, a sadistically psychedelic comedic sci-fi drama starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. In MANIAC, two strangers are drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial that will, they're assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.

TRUE DETECTIVE Season 3 will arrive on HBO beginning on January 13, 2019 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
