Carmen Ejogo (“It Comes at Night,” “Alien: Covenant”) has been tapped to star opposite Mahershala Ali in the forthcoming third season of Nic Pizzolatto’s anthology drama “True Detective” for HBO.
The macabre third season is set in the heart of the Ozarks and deals with a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.
Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who is an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.
Ali stars as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. Pizzolatto, who created the series, will serve as showrunner and direct alongside “Green Room” helmer Jeremy Saulnier.
