Here's some surprising, big, non-Star Wars TV news: Jodie Foster has made a deal to star in and executive produce the next season of True Detective.

The series, which has seen the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Mahershala Ali, Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn in the lead for past seasons, will set its fourth batch of episodes in the chilly locale of Alaska and is called True Detective: The Night Country.

It'll follow detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro, who are looking to solve the case of six men that operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanishing without a trace, when the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska. The pair will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.

Unlike previous seasons, which had Nic Pizzolatto as their main creative force, the new run will hail from writer and director Issa López, while Moonlight and The Underground Railroad's Barry Jenkins is a producer. There's no word on when this one will land on screens yet.
