Are you ready for an exciting ride? True Detective is back on HBO with a thrilling six-episode fourth season, after a long break since the last season and an even longer break since the famous first season in 2014. Under the direction of Issa López, Night Country uses parts of the original story that made it so interesting on purpose. This season has a different set of creators and actors, but it still has a scary crime scene, a fight between detectives with different personalities, and a hint of supernatural intrigue. Because Issa López is a great director and the Alaskan scenes were shot in Iceland, the new season of True Detective should be a lot like the first one. The series includes suspense, horror, and a bit of the supernatural, making this 10th-anniversary version a must-see.
