One of the big hitters returning for 2019 is True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto’s dark crime anthology series.
Starring Mahershala Ali as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas, the new series 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.
We actually can’t wait for this, not least because it has an enormous guest-star list. Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Ray Fisher, Michael Greyeyes, Jon Tenney, Deborah Ayorinde, Rhys Wakefield, Sarah Gadon, Emily Nelson, Brandon Flynn, Michael Graziadei, Josh Hopkins, Jodi Balfour and Mamie Gummer are all involved.
Here’s a trailer:
The show is slated for a return on Sunday 13th January on HBO in the US, which means, hopefully, that it’ll be on Sky Atlantic the day afterwards.
