Season 4 of True Detective is underway with Jodie Foster and Kali Reis.

The upcoming HBO series known as True Detective: Night Country has begun production in Iceland, three years after True Detective Season 3 premiered.

“When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the eight men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace,” reads the show’s official synopsis. “To solve the case, detectives Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) must confront their pasts and the dark truths lying underneath the Arctic ice.”

True Detective debuted back in 2014 with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson suiting up as two detectives working a homicide cold case in Louisiana.

The show became renowned for its star-studded pairing which continued into Season 2 with Colin Farrel, Vince Vaughn, and Rachel McAdams investigating the murder of a corrupt city official whose body was found at the side of a road.

Season 3 teamed Mahershala Ali with Stephen Dorff as the pair investigated the disappearance of two children.

Of course, True Detective has continued the A-list casting into its fourth season, with Jodie Foster set to star as Detective Liz Danvers alongside Kali Reis and Christopher Eccleston.

They’re joined by Fiona Shaw, Finn Bennett, Anna Lambe, Aka Niviâna, Isabella Star Lablanc, and Joel D. Montgrand.

Aside from the show’s cast and synopsis, little else is known about Night Country.

Issa Lopez and Alan Page are confirmed to co-write the show’s scripts, with Lopez also directing the show and acting as showrunner. Cary Joji Fukunaga and True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto are on board as executive producers, alongside Foster, Page, Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Mark Ceryak, Mari Jo Winkler, Chris Mundy, Steve Golin, Richard Brown, Matthew McConaughey, and Woody Harrelson.
