This January someone has to hug Old Mahershala.
Prior to the series finale of "Sharp Objects," those watching HBO on Sunday night were able to glimpse the next dark, sweaty mystery from the bounty. Cable Network: "True Detective" Season 3.
The First Trailer – which sets a release date in January 2019 – shows flashes of Wayne Hays by Maher Shawa Ali, a police detective from Northwest Arkansas, in three separate time periods. An older, gray-haired look on Hays finds him in pain, maybe he's still suffering from a crime he was investigating in the Ozarks when he was younger.
Co-stars Carmen Ejogo, Mamie Gummer and Scoot McNairy (and his mustache !) Also appear, but the big snack seems to be, "Hey, it's Season One again!" Nic Pizzolato's third quest for the most loyal detective evokes memories of his Emmy-winning collaboration with Cary Fukunaga, not his poorly-received successor-above. Even the release date coincides with the January debut of Season 1
Season 3 is directed by Jeremy Saulnier ("Blue Ruins"), Pizzolatto and Daniel Sackheim ("The Remnants"). The latter came on board after Saulnier had left production due to scheduling conflicts. Here's the official logline, courtesy of HBO:
The next episode of True Detective tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and erupts in three different time periods.  "True Detective" Season 3 will premiere in January 2019. Look at the first trailer.
