Just like when we submitted the Teaser for the highly anticipated third season of TRUE DETECTIVE we really don’t have much to add that hasn’t already been said. Below is the newly launched full trailer for the Mahershala Ali-led outing clocking in at 2 minutes 7 seconds. Take it in.
Creator Nic Pizzolatto & HBO just want to set the mood, get us back into the mindset and do so without giving away too much. It is clear that Detective Wayne Hays (Ali) has been disturbed by & unsettled over a case that haunts him into old age. We get the privilege, come January 13, 2019, to sit in on just what that case was all about for Hays and State Investigator Roland West (Stephen Dorff). It was clearly a tough case for these true detectives of Arkansas.
HBO give us some series particulars:
