True Detective Season One was one of the most original TV shows to come along in a long time, between the unique casting and volatile mood to the whole thing, the fact that you really felt anything could happen to any one of the characters at any time. As we previously learned, Mahershala Ali (Marvel's Luke Cage and Oscar victor for Moonlight) will star, but now we know he'll play Arkansas detective Wayne Hays investigating a murder in the Ozarks. The HBO series has been renewed for a new season!

U.S. premium cablenet HBO has given the go-ahead for a third season of crime drama True Detective.

Season 3 of True Detective will tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks, and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods. Creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is set to be the sole writer on all of the new episodes, except part 4, which he has apparently written with Deadwood's David Milch.

Integration between Amazon Alexa and Microsoft Cortana announced
There's no specific word on which will hit the Australian market, although Google expects "most" of them to make it to Australia. Users will soon be able to fire questions at Cortana via Amazon Echo , or question Alexa via a Windows 10 device.

According to a report in Entertainment Weekly, the show created by Nic Pizzolatto will return for its third instalment, but the production schedule or release dates are still under wraps. Apparently, Jeremy Saulnier was that director. "With his ambitious vision and Mahershala Ali and Jeremy Saulnier aboard, we are excited to embark on the next installment of 'True Detective'".

"I'm tremendously thrilled to be working with artists at the level of Mahershala and Jeremy", Pizzolatto also said in a statement. It has not been announced exactly how many episodes Season 3 will entail because Pizzolatto is still writing (the first two seasons were eight episodes each), but this marks a return to form of sorts.

The show's first season starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey.
