Season 1 of this show is by many considered to be the best TV crime drama in recent years. With season 2 disappointing some viewers because of the high standard set by its first season, season 3 has been well received by critics and viewers alike.
Season 3 takes place in the Ozarks over three separate time periods, where the disappearance of two children are being investigated. Mahershala Ali, whom you might know from Green Book and House of Cards, plays the lead role of detective Wayne Hays, with 90s ultimate B-star Stephen Dorff playing his partner detective Roland West.
As True Detective tends to be a bit slow-paced for one episode at a time, now is the perfect time to binge-watch season 3, as the finale aired on February 24th.
