Jodie Foster will star in the leading role of the next installment of the HBO anthology True Detective. The two-time Oscar-winning actress will play Detective Liz Danvers in the fourth season of the show, titled True Detective: Night Country. 

Foster — who is also one of the season’s producers — is the only actor who’s been cast so far. Night Country will be set in Ennis, Alaska, where daylight dwindles to nothing as Danvers and fellow detective Evangeline Navarro investigate the disappearance of six men from the Tsalal Arctic Research Station. The fourth season of True Detective is sure to follow its predecessors and toe the line between realistic crime drama and hallucinatory trip into the darker corners of society.

Foster hasn’t starred in a television series since breaking onto the big screen in 1976 with Taxi Driver and Echoes of Summer. The 59-year-old actress has big shoes to fill, following Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Mahershala Ali, and Stephen Dorff — all of whom have taken a turn playing detectives on the genre-bending crime series. 

HBO has not released any production or release dates, but according to the show’s synopsis, Danvers and Navarro will “have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, […] and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.”
