True Detective Gets Premiere Window, Trailer Coming This Weekend

By Jacob Klein on Sep 5, 2013 to True Detective


Ever since HBO first teased the new detective series True Detective all we could think was “when?!”  Well today HBO has confirmed that True Detective will air “in January”.  This isn’t too much of a surprise but it does confirm the best 2014 scenario as we’ll be without Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and True Blood and The Newsroom at that time.  We’re hoping that Girls season 3 also premieres alongside True Detective but consider that just speculation at this point.

HBO has also promised us a new trailer that will be airing with the premiere of Boardwalk Empire season 4 this Sunday night at 9PM.  So be sure to tune in shortly before (or set your DVRs to record) if you want to be sure to catch that.

True Detective will have an eight episode first season and is intended to be an anthology series which will move on to a new story in a second season.  This first season will star Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson while subsequent seasons will most likely feature other actors (hopefully big names as well!)

  • Looks pretty interesting, but right from the get-go I don’t think it will even hold a torch to The Wire. Still though, it’s a different premise and could be successful (we hope)!

    Looks like “True Detective” will be very interesting. I can’t wait for Sunday’s trailer!

    DIdn’t I sort of predict TD’s premiere four posts ago?

    Now for a bit of speculation: TREME will air for five Sundays starting 12.01. The next three episodes will air 12.08, 12.15 and 12.22. I believe that it will skip the Sunday of 12.29 and run its final episode on 01.05.14 at 9:00pm ET. I predict that TRUE DETECTIVE will premiere at the 10:00 hour that same night!

      When do you think girls will premiere?

      • My guess is early Q1. Possibly taking over Treme’s spot starting right on 1/5. Game of Thrones / Veep (cant believe we’re talking about them again already!) take over in April so really the only window for 10 episodes is Jan-March.
