HBO has greenlit a fifth season of True Detective following the conclusion of a successful fourth season, True Detective: Night Country. Issa López, the showrunner behind Night Country, will return to helm the anthology series after taking the reins from creator Nic Pizzolatto. López’s return coincides with her signing an overall deal with the network’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery, to develop new projects for HBO.

Francesca Orsi, HBO’s head of drama, praised López’s creative prowess and leadership, highlighting her seamless direction of True Detective: Night Country and the remarkable success of the latest installment. Night Country emerged as the most-watched season of True Detective, drawing in 12.7 million viewers across various platforms. López’s appointment came after Pizzolatto’s departure to Disney following the expiration of his deal with HBO.

Despite Pizzolatto’s continued involvement as an executive producer, he has publicly criticized Night Country on social media, drawing mixed reactions from cast members. In contrast, López has expressed admiration for Pizzolatto’s previous seasons and aims to expand the franchise within the same universe.

López expressed her enthusiasm for continuing her collaboration with HBO and the opportunity to explore a new iteration of True Detective. The series joins HBO’s lineup of acclaimed dramas, including The Last of Us, Euphoria, House of the Dragon, and upcoming projects like The Regime and The Sympathizer. Additionally, a potential third season of Big Little Lies is in early development.
