Sept. 27 (UPI) -- HBO announced the premiere date for True Detective: Night Country on Wednesday. The fourth season of the drama premieres Jan. 14.

The disappearance occurs just as extended nightfall hits the city of Ennis, Alaska. Finn Bennett, Fiona Shaw, Christopher Eccleston, Isabella Star LaBlanc, and John Hawkes also star.

HBO first announced a fourth season of the show in early 2022. They began production in Iceland that November.

Season 2 featured Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch in California. Season 3 starred Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scott McNairy and Ray Fisher in the Ozarks.


Issa López showruns, rights, directs and executive produces. Foster is also an executive producer with PASTEL's Mari Jo Winkler, Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, and Mark Ceryak.

True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto and Season 1 director Cary Joji Fukunaga remain executive producers along with McConaughey and Harrelson. Additional executive producers include Chris Mundy, Alan Page Arriaga, Steve Golin and Richard Brown.
