“My job…. there’s no certainty. This peace… is more haunting than anything. I want to know the whole story.”
Season 3, which also stars Mamie Gummer, Stephen Dorff and Carmen Ejogo, was directed by Daniel Sackheim, who took over from Jeremy Saulnier as Variety reported exclusively. Saulnier directed the first two episodes; Sackheim divided up the final six with series creator/exec producer Nic Pizzolatto, marking his directorial debut.
The critically acclaimed first season one was directed entirely by Cary Fukunaga; he was replaced in season two by a rotating lineup of directors.
Season 3 of “True Detective” will premiere in January 2019 on HBO.
