Watch the intense first trailer for True Detective season 3

HBO have unveiled the ridiculously intense first trailer for the highly anticipated third season of True Detective. We’re so damn excited.

The new trailer features Academy Award winning Mahershala Ali as an Arkansas state police detective investigating a crime in the Ozarks over a period of multiple decades.

True Detective season three is coming in January 2019… and HBO have just released the seriously intense first trailer.

The show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto will once again be heading the writing of the series, and will be co-directing with Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room).

Before you ever knew me, I wasn’t scared much. That wasn’t a fear for me. Things I’ve seen, things I know, wouldn’t do anything but cause harm. My whole brain’s a bunch of missing pieces,” Mahershala says in the trailer.

My job…. there’s no certainty. This peace… is more haunting than anything. I want to know the whole story.”

Mamie Gummer, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy and Carmen Ejogo are all also set to star in the new series.
