Mahershala Ali () will star as Wayne Hays, a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas.
He will be put on the case of the “macabre crime,” but that’s all we know about his character. Part of what made the first two seasons work (when they did) were the pairings of Matthew Mc Conaughey and Woody Harrelson in season 1, and Colin Ferrell and Rachel Mc Adams in season 2.

Pizzolatto will make his directorial debut this season.
