As we settle into 2019, HBO has released a video previewing the year ahead with first looks at many of their upcoming new series and seasons.
The video includes peeks at the much-anticipated final season of Game of Thrones, Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen TV series, new series Euphoria, upcoming miniseries Chernobyl and Catherine the Great, and new Big Little Lies, Veep, True Detective, Barry, Succession, and Divorce seasons.
HBO has released a new trailer for the long-awaited new season of True Detective, which will premiere nearly three and a half years after season two ended, believe it or not.
The new season stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, and the story will take place over the course of three decades. It comes from creator Nic Pizzolatto. You can find much more information on True Detective season three and check out the new trailer as well as a previously released trailer in case you missed it.
It’s been three years, believe it or not, since True Detective arrived on HBO to massive critical praise. It’s actually already been two years since the not so well-received second season ended.
A third season was a large question mark for a long while now. Back at the beginning of the year, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys said ideas were being exchanged but they weren’t rushing things. Now comes word that season three is officially happening, and some details have been shared.
More on the new season’s story and who’s involved below.
In addition to talking about the current status of any possible Game of Thrones prequels or spinoffs, as well as how many episodes season eight will have, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys also offered brief status updates for some of their other projects.
Bloys shared the current status of that Deadwood movie we’ve been hearing about, which fans of the western series have been anxiously awaiting word on. The update doesn’t really offer much, sadly, so don’t excitedly rush below to see it. He also shared where things stand on two more recent shows: True Detective, which had an outstanding debut season but rough second season, leaving the status of season three up in the air; and The Night Of, their crime series which was initially a limited series but due to its success is being considered for new episodes.
See what Bloys had to say about the three projects below.
