Everything we know about True Detective Season 4 – subtitled Night Country – including any release date information, trailer, cast, plot, and more.

True Detective is one of the most acclaimed crime dramas of the last decade. The first season starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and was little short of a sensation when it dropped on HBO at the start of 2014.

The series then followed an anthology path, with each successive season focussing on a new crime, in a new location, with new characters. Season 2 released in 2015 and starred Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams. While Season 3 dropped in 2019 and featured Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff.

The previous True Detective seasons aired weekly, so expect Night Country to do the same rather than dropping all at one.
