Jodie Foster is set to star in the fourth season of HBO’s crime drama, “True Detective.”
Deadline reports that Foster will play Detective Liz Danvers, who has been tasked with investigating the disappearance of six men who vanished from a remote Arctic research station in Alaska.
Foster will also serve as an executive producer for the series along with writers Issa Lopez and Alan Page Arriaga, Barry Jenkins and others.
Few plot details have been confirmed regarding the series’ fourth season, which Variety reported was in development as of March 2022.
Foster, a two-time Oscar winner for her roles in “The Accused” and “Silence of the Lambs,” is known mostly for her work on the big screen. More recently, however, she has directed episodes of “Black Mirror” and “Orange Is the New Black,” for which she received an Emmy nomination.
Foster famously came out publicly at the Golden Globes in 2013 when accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement. She celebrated a more recent Golden Globes win – for her role in the thriller, “The Mauritanian” – during a remote ceremony which she attended from home in her pajamas along with her wife and dog, Ziggy.
“True Detective” is an anthology series that follows a new cast and storyline each season. The first season, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, aired in 2014.
