A new chapter in the anthology crime drama True Detective is on the horizon, meaning a new cast and a new mystery to keep us on the edge of our seats.
Airing in 2014, season one of True Detective saw mismatched detective duo, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as they looked to uncover a case that puzzled them for more than a decade.
Then, for season two, we had a larger cast including Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn, before season three brought us Mahershala Ali’s chapter, which aired four years ago in 2019.
So, fans will be pleased to hear that despite the long wait a fourth season of the hit show is officially on its way, and we have all the details – from the release date to the plot to the cast – down below.
What is the plot of True Detective season four?
As we know, each season of True Detective introduces different detective characters investigating different cases, and season four is no different.

To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.
