“True Detective” is back on the case.
HBO’s limited series will officially return for a third season, this time starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. Showrunner and creator Nic Pizzolatto is set to direct, along with Jeremy Saulnier (“Green Room,” “Blue Ruin”).
The next installment tells the story of 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 will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. It does not currently have an air date, nor is there a set date for the start of production.
“Nic has written truly remarkable scripts,” said Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of programming. “With his ambitious vision and Mahershala Ali and Jeremy Saulnier aboard, we are excited to embark on the next installment of True Detective.”
Pizzolatto is the sole writer of the series, with the exception of episode 4 which he co-wrote with David Milch. “I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy,’ said Pizzolatto, who is under an overall deal at the cabler. “I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story.”
“True Detective’s” critically acclaimed first season starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson; Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch appeared in the second season. “True Detective’s” second run ended up averaging more same-night viewers (2.61 million) than Season 1 (2.33 million), according to Nielsen. But that was due to a big tune-in for the first couple of weeks of Season 2. The finale of the second season averaged 2.71 million, while the conclusion of the first drew a series-best 3.52 million, according to Nielsen.
Executive producers also include Scott Stephens, McConaughey, Harrelson, Cary Joji Fukunaga, along with Steve Golin, Bard Dorros, and Richard Brown.
Pizzolatto is represented by Jill Gillett, Sylvie Rabineau, Phil Raskind at WME, Bard Dorros at Anonymous Content. Ali is repped by Brandt Joel and Brian DePersia at WME, Carolyn Govers at Anonymous Content. And Jeremy Saulnier is represented by Rob Kenneally, Maha Dakhil, Craig Gering at CAA, Keith Redmon at Anonymous Content
Season three of True Detective is finally a go.
After months of speculation and even a time when there was a star but not yet an official show, another installment of True Detective is officially in the works, written largely by creator Nic Pizzolatto with some input from Deadwood creator David Milch.
Mahershala Ali will star as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas, in a story about a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods, meaning we might be heading back to the season one format of skipping through time.

The series has been basically put on hold since the second season, which starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn received less than stellar reviews in 2015, but was never officially canceled. During HBO’s summer TCA press tour, Bloys revealed that Pizzolatto had written five “terrific” scripts, and the network was just searching for the right director before greenlighting this third season. Apparently, Jeremy Saulnier was that director.
“Nic has written truly remarkable scripts. With his ambitious vision and Mahershala Ali and Jeremy Saulnier aboard, we are excited to embark on the next installment of True Detective,” said HBO programming president Casey Bloys in a statement.
“I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy,” said Pizzolatto. “I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story.”

True Detective will likely return to HBO in 2018.
HBO has given True Detective the green light for its third season starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, with a concept by series creator Nic Pizzolatto and Deadwood creator David Milch. While Pizzolatto will have written the entire series, Milch did pitch in to write episode four and seems to have his little touches all over.
The third season takes the series away from the urban sprawl and repeated highway shots of California to return to the more rural part of the nation — and one that’s familiar to fans of Jason Bateman’s new Netflix series. Ali will play Wayne Hays, an Arkansas state police detective investigating some sort of horrible murder in the Ozarks according to Entertainment Weekly:
“The next installment of True Detective tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.”
So much like season one, we’ll be jumping through time periods to piece whatever crime we come across together. You have to think the return to a more rural setting has a bit to do with the reaction to season two — something I enjoyed but plenty of people did not and didn’t hesitate to let you know about it. That said, season one was definitely high above and if the show can recapture that feel, it’ll be a step in the right direction.
Pizzolatto will direct the next season, but he’ll be sharing duties with Green Room and Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier. If you haven’t seen either film, drop everything and do yourself a favor. If his involvement means Macon Blair will be making an appearance in True Detective, it’s another reason to get excited. It’s also means we’ll see a more singular vision for the whole season, another return to season one and the work of director Cary Fukunaga. While it is Pizzolatto’s first time directing according to Entertainment Weekly, bringing Saulnier on-board is promising.
There is no premiere date for the series yet and HBO did not release an episode count, but you can officially start to get curious and figure out what type of horrifying crime will envelop the show when it returns.

Marvel is teasing the coming of its latest superhero TV show on Netflix with some real military style. “The Punisher” TV series debuted a new cast video as well as a clever message by way of Morse code to fans of the military-trained anti-hero.
The Punisher was first introduced to the Marvel and Netflix TV world by way of “Daredevil” Season 2, where Jon Bernthal played the Frank Castle character in an intense, and bloody, legal plotline. Castle has always been a fan-favorite, particularly amongst members of the U.S. military, and Bernthal’s performance granted him a solo spinoff series all his own. Now, fans know what the episode titles of “The Punisher” Season 1 will be, and they carry a decidedly military tone.
The official Twitter account for “The Punisher” series leaned into the character’s military roots by posting a series of messages in Morse code, which Entertainment Weekly happily translated into the following:
1: “3 AM”
2: “Two Dead Men”
6: “The Judas Goat”
8: “Cold Steel”
9: “Front Toward Enemy”
10: “Virtue of the Vicious”
11: “Danger Close”
13: “Memento Mori”
In addition to what appear to be the episode titles for the upcoming series, a teaser video was released as well showing the cast of supporting characters that wlll join Bernthal for his first mission on his own. Most noteworthy in the cast is Deborah Ann Woll, who played Karen Page in both seasons of “Daredevil” and the recently-dropped “Defenders.”
Sadly, the teaser video didn’t shed any light as to the show’s release date, but it did confirm it will arrive before the end of 2017. Typically, Marvel and Netflix like to stagger their new shows by about six months. With Defenders having released in August, it seems that timeline won’t hold true for “The Punisher.”
