HBO has officially given the go-ahead for Season 4 of “True Detective,” and Jodie Foster and Kali Reis will play the leads.
In March, it was said that the premium cabler was working on a new season of the anthology drama. The season is called “True Detective: Night Country,” and it starts when the long Alaskan winter night falls and the six men who run the Tsalal Arctic Research Station disappear without a trace. Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to face the dark parts of themselves and dig into the haunted truths buried under the eternal ice in order to solve the case.
Reis hasn’t been acting for very long. Her first movie was “Catch the Fair One,” which came out in 2021. She not only played the main role in the movie, but she also helped make the story for it. Reis is best known for her time as a professional boxer. In multiple weight classes, she won world championships. She has 19 wins, 7 losses, and 1 draw on her professional record. Her last fight was in November 2021. During that fight, she kept both the WBA and IBO titles for super lightweight women and won the vacant WBO title for super lightweight women.
Reis is also a motivational speaker and a vocal supporter of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls movement. She teaches young Native women how to fight both physically and vocally against the targeting of Native youth.
ICM and Authentic Talent & Literary Management represent her.
“We are tremendously excited to return to the ‘True Detective’ franchise and to be working with the multi-talented Issa López, whose singular vision for her ‘Night Country’ installment will be beautifully realized with Jodie Foster and Kali Reis in the starring roles,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming.
Season 4 of “True Detective” will be shot in Iceland. Issa López is set to write, be an executive producer, and run the show for the new season, as well as direct. Alan Page Arriaga will also write for and be in charge of making the show. Foster will also star in the movie and serve as its executive producer. Barry Jenkins, Adele Romanski, and Mark Ceryak of Pastel will also be executive producers. The first-look deal for Pastel is with HBO and HBO Max. Anonymous Content, which has made previous seasons of the show, will also be an executive producer, along with the show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto, Mari Jo Winkler, and Season 1’s Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Cary Joji Fukunaga.
