Joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), we’ve learned tonight that Carmen Ejogo (Selma, The Purge: Anarchy) will star in “True Detective” Season 3.
Per THR, Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.
Ali plays Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.
Season 3 tells the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.
Nic Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Green Room‘s Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey and Cary Fukunaga. Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are exec producers.
