HBO releases ‘True Detective’ trailer for third season, due out in 2019

| Friday, August 31, 2018 12:06 a.m

After a second season that didn’t seem to sit well with critics and fans alike, HBO’s noir crime anthology “True Detective” is setting the table for a third go-round.

The new season will feature Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Best Supporting Actor, “Moonlight”) as a former investigator haunted by a long-forgotten case.

In a story spanning three decades, partner detectives investigate a macabre crime involving two missing children in the heart of the Ozarks, Arkansas.

Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (“Moonlight,” “House of Cards”) will play detective Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. Stephen Dorff (“Somewhere,” “Immortals”) is set to play Arkansas State Investigator Roland West. Carmen Ejogo (“Selma,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) will play school teacher Amelia Reardon, who is connected to two missing children.

The eight-episode season will debut in January 2019, according to HBO’s website.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
