Here's your first ominous look at True Detective season 3

HBO dropped the first trailer Sunday for the third season of True Detective, its anthology crime series. The tense clip showcases Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as lead detective Wayne Hays, an Arkansas state police detective who is "clearly haunted by a case," Variety explains. In the short teaser, Hays is seen at three different ages in varying states of anguish.

True Detective creater Nic Pizzolatto will write all of season three, though he will team with Jeremy Saulnier to direct. The series returns to HBO in January. Watch the clip below. Kimberly Alters
