I have to quickly admit that for its first season, True Detective was a well-crafted crime anthology series. The next iteration of the series from showrunner Nic Pizzolatto had been gestating for some time, with rumours of the creator plotting a comeback for the show ever since HBO signed him to a three-year deal in 2015.
The third instalment of True Detective will attempt to redeem the series after the critical bashing it underwent in the second season after its breakout freshman man year starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. Believe me, the show’s second outing was almost forgettable, probably because the first season had been groundbreaking and the producers thought they could reproduce the same magic through an anthology-style retelling without any significant loss in audience and/or quality.
Per Deadline, British-Nigerian actress Deborah Ayorinde will be joining an already solid cast for the HBO series’ third season. Ayorinde (Girls Trip, Luke Cage, Sleepy Hollow) will portray Becca Hayes, the estranged daughter of retired Arkansas State Police detective Wayne Hayes (played by Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali).
