One of the big, returning series this year is True Detective, Nic Pizzolatto’s anthology series. Series one, of course, won The Killing Times’ first-ever Best Crime Drama Of The Year back in 2014.
After an absence of four years, the series is back, this time starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, Stephen Dorff and Carmen Ejogo (Selma).
Series three picks up in 2015 with retired detective Wayne Hays, his memory failing, looking back at the disappearance of 12-year-old Will and 10-year-old Julie Purcell, recalling the days and weeks immediately following the 1980 crime, as well as developments in 1990, when he and his former partner, Roland West, were subpoenaed after a major break in the case.
