TVLine Items: True Detective Season 4 Trailer, Amber Brown Axed and More

True Detective is taking an ice-cold turn in its fourth season.

HBO has released a teaser trailer for True Detective: Night Country, premiering later this year on the premium cabler (and Max, the new name of Warner Bros. Discovery’s combined streaming service).

Set around an Alaskan disappearance case, this installment of the popular crime-drama anthology stars Academy Award winner Jodie Foster and American actress and professional boxer Kali Reis in the lead detective roles.

“When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the eight men who operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace,” reads the official synopsis. “To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.”
