A new series is coming to HBO this January. True Detective looks to be one of the more exciting shows to come to premium television in a long time. HBO is finally returning to the world of crime. Here’s the press release from HBO:

TRUE DETECTIVE debuts SUNDAY, JAN. 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO. The series stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as Louisiana detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, whose lives collide and entwine during a 17-year hunt for a killer, ranging from the original investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 to the reopening of the case in 2012. Michelle Monaghan also stars as Hart’s wife, Maggie, who struggles to keep her family together as the men in her life become locked in a cycle of violence and obsession. Written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga, who are executive producers along with Steve Golin and Scott Stephens.

You’ll be ready for more HBO after the holidays, right? January looks to be a major month for HBO with True Detective, Girls and Getting on all premiering in Q1. Check out the True Detective trailers if you haven’t already.

    Boooooooooorrriiinnnnnggggg !!!

  • Jill

    I just watched. Slow moving dull and boring.

    • Jillmustbedumb

      That’s probably because you are. It may be too complex for your feeble brain.

      • HappyB

        I’ve watched the first 3 episodes and it’s dull beyond words. There’s nothing new or poetic about a guy sitting around getting drunk and saying life has no meaning. Good fiction has a narrative hook or something driving the plot while peppered with developments. We don’t care who killed the girl and we don’t care why after 3 hours of no plot development. The big “mystery” as to why the detectives had a falling out? Who cares, they already hate each other. Watching episode 4 and unless it’s shockingly good (doubt it), done watching. I’ll read Nietzche if I want to heard good thought about the pointlessness of life.

        • I’d suggest giving up then. If you aren’t hooked by now, you never will be. It’s not for everyone!

      I’m hearing “NEED MORE BOOM TOO MUCH TALKY WITH MOUTH”

  • joe dirt

  • Sponce

    wow boardwalk empire is the shit and true detective looks like the shitiiiiittt so double dose of um … Crap for me please, oh and forget Breaking bad its over and sucked compared to HBO shows… I mean Game of Thrones poops on Breaking Boils

  • Mônica Vanzillotta

    I’m crying of happiness with this birthday gift that HBO will give me: a series with Woody Harrelson.

  • Fuck_Your_Comments

    show looks awesome. I’m predicting that people are gonna love these two guys so much that there gonna do multiple seasons together. Much like aaron paul was only supposed to do one season of breaking bad. im not saying the show will be as good but I think these guys are brilliant actors and there performances will be nothing short of just that.

  • Joe

    Looks like the same crap. That the original Three networks show, recycled stories and all. That is when they are not showing their brainless reality TV.

    • This is your second uncalled-for, negative comment within minutes on two unrelated posts. If you are not a fan of HBO, fair enough, but please stop posting bitter comments.

    • Jef Dinsmore

      Then I guess we are about to enjoy some “crap.”

    • theusher

      What a moron. So now every crime/thriller cable show is on par with those generic network procedurals? Furthermore, did you watched the show? No? Then shut the f**k up.

  • Teag

    “HBO is finally returning to the world of crime.”? Boardwalk Empire isn’t about crime?
