True Detective: Night Country is one of HBO’s most anticipated new shows, and we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see it. Despite teasing a 2023 release for the fourth season of this acclaimed anthology series, HBO pushed its premiere date to January 2024.

True Detective: Night Country was a part of Max’s sizzle reel for 2023, but its rollout will take much longer than first anticipated. HBO’s official website now teases the 2024 release date, and they haven’t given an official reason for this delay, but it’s likely it was postponed due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes in Hollywood.

True Detective: Night Country will take us to Ennis, Alaska, where the eight men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace after the long winter night falls over this town.

Detectives Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) are entrusted with solving this mystery, and they must confront the darkness they carry in themselves and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice to crack this case.

Issa López serves as the showrunner of the show’s fourth season, which will also star John Hawkes, Christopher Eccleston, Fiona Shaw, Finn Bennett, Anna Lambe, Aka Niviâna, Isabella Star Lablanc, and Joel D. Montgrand.
