True Detective is set to return with a whole new cast – with Jodie Foster taking the lead in a haunting new investigation set in Alaska. While the anthology series has been a little hit and miss since Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson's celebrated first season, it looks like this is set to be on top form in the new series titled Night Country.
