HBO has officially announced Season 3 of True Detective, which we told you earlier this summer would star Mahershala Ali.

Jeremy Saulnier will direct the third season of the crime anthology series with  Nic Pizzolatto.

The upcoming season will center around “a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods. Ali will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.”

Nic has written truly remarkable scripts. With his ambitious vision and Mahershala Ali and Jeremy Saulnier aboard, we are excited to embark on the next installment of True Detective,”  said HBO president Casey Bloys.

“I’m tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy. I hope the material can do justice to their talents, and we’re all very excited to tell this story,” said Pizzolatto.

HBO hasn’t revealed when the season will air or when production begins.
