What is the True Detective season 4 release date? Since 2014, True Detective has been one of the most popular shows on HBO, and the anthology format is returning, with a standalone mystery and new cast taking centre-stage for a fourth chapter.
Season 1 of True Detective starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, investigating a string of occultist murders in Louisiana. Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell took centre stage in season 2 of the TV series investigating the murder of a corrupt politician, and in season 3, which stars Mahershala Ali, the focus is on a disturbing crime involving two children in the Ozarks.
Although Nic Pizzolatto, who served as showrunner for the first three seasons of the thriller series, will not be the showrunner of season 4, he will retain an executive producer credit. Meanwhile, Issa López is stepping up as showrunner and will also direct a number of episodes. The new season will be subtitled Night Country, so as we immerse ourselves into this new world, here’s what we know about the True Detective season 4 release date.
True Detective season 4 release date speculation
We don’t know the True Detective season 4 release date, but HBO has announced it will premiere at some point in 2023.
Because production on True Detective season 4 only started in November 2022, it might be a while until the series drops on HBO, and we predict it will be late 2023 when the show arrives.
