HBO’s “True Detective” is returning for a third season. After a prosperous first season and disappointing second, fans are hoping the third season returns to its former glory. For some, it’s sure to hit home in more ways than one. The season has multiple ties to Arkansas:
- Season three will star Mahershala Ali, recent Oscar winner for his role in “Moonlight,” as a police detective from Northwest Arkansas.
- Local Graham Gordy, co-creator and writer of Cinemax’s “Quarry,” will work on the season.
- “True Detective” creator, writer and director, Nic Pizzolatto, attended University of Arkansas at Fayetteville for graduate school.
