OSCAR WINNER MAHERSHALA ALI SIGNS UP FOR SEASON 3 OF HBO’S ‘TRUE DETECTIVE’!

True Detective fans have been thrown a juicy bone as Oscar winner Mahershala Ali has signed up for Season 3 of the dark series. HBO made the casting announcement at their summer TCA presentation. Five scripts have reportedly been completed, however the new season is yet to be greenlit until a director is attached.

Created by Nic Pizzolatto, True Detective enjoyed critical success out of the gate with Season 1 which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, but faltered in its second season which starred Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. Lessons have apparently been learned and rather than rushing another season to air, HBO is taking its time to return to the kind of quality that made the series a hit in the first place.
