The show’s fourth season will take place in Alaska.

While there is plenty of major TV shows set to premiere or return in 2023, arguably the most anticipated is the upcoming fourth season of True Detective.

Titled True Detective: Night Country, HBO has released its first footage from the next instalment of the anthology crime drama, which will star two-time Oscar-winner Jodie Foster and professional boxer Kali Reis.

The pair will play detectives who find themselves investigating a strange case in the snowy surroundings of Alaska.

“When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the eight men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace,” the logline for the season reads.

“To solve the case, detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) must confront their pasts and the dark truths lying underneath the Arctic ice.”

Also starring in True Detective: Night Country will be Aka Niviâna, Anna Lambe, Christopher Eccleston, Finn Bennett, Fiona Shaw, Isabella Star Lablanc, Joel D. Montgrand and John Hawkes, while Issa López (Tigers Are Not Afraid) will serve as writer and director on the season.

The first footage from the season – which currently does not have a release date – comes courtesy of a sizzle reel from HBO to highlight all the major shows it will release in 2023.

Alongside True Detective, other programmes set to return over the next 12 months include Barry, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Hacks, Perry Mason, Succession, Tokyo Vice and Winning Time.

Also in 2023, HBO will release a number of new series including the kidnapping thriller Full Circle, showbiz drama The Idol, true crime drama Love and Death, video game adaptation The Last of Us and Watergate-centred drama White House Plumbers.
