True Detective has been a hit show since its first season aired in January 2014, and its upcoming season is no exception. In the Night Country trailer, viewers will see callbacks to the first season, including a cop being interviewed about a harrowing case, dark and moody wide shots with a tinge of the supernatural, and the spooky spiral from season 1 back in action. While these callbacks make for good fan service, the trailer also hints at deeper connections to the first season, such as the fact that the story is set in Alaska, where Rust Cohle claims his dying father lived in season 1. True Detective has always been a show that kept viewers guessing, with little tidbits like this that make it a hit for those who enjoy theorizing and digging deep into the show’s lore.
The show’s first season was especially successful because of the pairing of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in a murder mystery with an eerie Weird Fiction subtext and an all-timer title sequence. However, True Detective’s subsequent seasons failed to be as much of a sensation as the first, so when the much-delayed third season arrived in 2019 and was effectively put on ice, it seemed that the show’s time had come and gone. But with Night Country, HBO is giving viewers another chance to relive the magic of the first season and see what other spooky and weird elements are in store.
All in all, True Detective: Night Country is shaping up to be an engrossing mystery that will have fans theorizing and poring over every frame. With Jodie Foster as Detective Liz Danvers and Kali Reis as her reluctant partner Detective Evangeline Navarro on the hunt for men missing from an Arctic research station, there is sure to be plenty of thrills and chills in store when the show premieres later this year.
