HBO’s Casey Bloys teased an announcement about a fourth season of True Detective, and now the show has a new name and a new look. Filmmakers Issa López and Barry Jenkins will serve as executive producers on the upcoming True Detective: Night Country season, according to Deadline.
Writer, executive producer, and director López, best known for her 2017 feature Tigers Are Not Afraid, will helm the pilot episode. In addition to directing the Prime Video series The Underground Railroad and a prequel/sequel to Disney’s CGI Lion King, Jenkins will executive produce through his Pastel label, which has a first look agreement with HBO, and earned an Academy Award for Best Picture for Moonlight back in 2017.
Since Nic Pizzolatto was not mentioned in the trade article, it doesn’t appear like he will be part in the show’s new direction. According to the article, HBO has asked some of their other artists, including Euphoria creator Sam Levinson, to try to crack the True Detective. According to reports in the industry, Cromo and La Jaura creator Lucia Puenzo also worked on a version of the show.
According to Bloys, “on True Detective, we’ve been developing numerous ideas,” last month. “Keep an eye out for that.” Insisting that HBO was “exploring several ideas,” specifically, gives credibility to Deadline’s allegation. After negotiating an exclusive deal with FX Networks, Pizzolatto seems to have abandoned plans for a fourth season.
The True Detective Season 4 Has Been Renewed? What Is The Schedule For The Film?
True Detective will return for a fourth season. HBO is reportedly working on a new season of the prestige crime thriller without the involvement of creator and showrunner Nic Pizzolatto, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter.
True Detective: Night Country, the show’s fourth season, will be produced by Oscar-winning producer Barry Jenkins and written by Mexican film director Issa López.
Following Season 3 of True Detective in 2019, Pizzolatto’s contract with HBO was terminated following the Ozarks-set series, which featured Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff as well as Ray Fisher, Carmen Ejogo, Scoot NcNairy, and Mamie Gummer.
In spite of Pizzolatto’s absence, HBO still owns the rights to True Detective, and HBO programming president Casey Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter back in February that the network was “considering multiple concepts” to carry forward with the anthology series.
True Detective has received 21 Emmy Award nominations, four Golden Globe nominations, and a Critics’ Choice Award win for Matthew McConaughey for Best Actor in a Drama Series for its three seasons.
On the fourth season, it is likely that McConaughey and Harrelson will both be listed as executive producers as they have been for all of the show’s runs, even though they were just the two stars in the show’s debut season.

Apparently, There Was a Problem With the Prior Season.
Cary Joji Fukunaga directed all eight episodes of True Detective’s first season, which premiered to tremendous acclaim in 2014, when actors Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson were leading the group (later winning a Primetime Emmy for his work on the show).
There was a four-year gap before the third season of the show returned with a less well-received second season including Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn. Detectives Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff appeared in the third season of
True Detective in a variety of roles, including those of officers in numerous historical periods and different ages. Ali was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie at the Primetime Emmy Awards, following his two Oscar victories.
