Mahershala Ali Has Signed On To “True Detective” Season 3

About a month ago the word on the e-streets was that Mahershala Ali was set to join the cast of “True Detective.” Well, today the news becomes official as Mahershala Ali has signed on for Season 3 of the HBO show. The news came down yesterday as the network’s president of programming, Casey Bloys, gave the okay.

Casey Bloys also spoke with Deadline about the upcoming season, stating: “They are terrific… I was very impressed and excited.” Later in the same interview, he also suggests that there isn’t much at all standing in the way of the show moving forward — “We are talking to directors, and when we have a director we want to hire, it will be a go.” No word on any other details just yet, but we expect to hear much more soon. Speak your thoughts on the news and keep it locked for more from HBO coming soon!
