Is there a chance that we will learn anything more about a True Detective season 5 between now and the end of June? Obviously, there are reasons aplenty to be excited.

So what do we know so far? Let’s begin by just noting that the new season (once again the creation of Issa Lopez) will be featuring a new setting and different characters. There is a possibility that it could be tied to Night Country or other seasons in the franchise, but it feels as though it will also have a self-contained story arc. Is there a chance that could change someday? Certainly, but it feels almost perfect for an Avengers-sort of final season than anything along the way — and who knows how long this story will last?

Given that we did just hear from Lopez earlier this month about some of her ideas in the midst of Emmy campaign season, it does feel a tad too optimistic to expect anything more in the immediate future. For now, it almost feels insane to think that anything about a season 5 premiere date will come out this month. After all, there is no telling when it will start production, and the HBO release calendar feels largely stacked for most of the next year and a half. Remember that in 2025 alone you have The White Lotus, The Last of Us, a new Game of Thrones prequel in A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, potentially more of The Gilded Age, and then also the possibility of Euphoria returning depending on when production starts. True Detective, odds are, will not be back until 2026.

In the end, don’t be shocked if there are few additional headlines on the series’ future until next year and if that happens, it is okay. If there is one thing that season 2 taught us with great abundance, it is that bad things can happen if you rush a process alone. Just look at season 2 as a prime example.
