Killing Eve vet Fiona Shaw is getting entangled in True Detective‘s case: The actress has joined Season 4 of the HBO drama, which will star Jodie Foster and Kali Reis, our sister site Variety reports.
Officially titled True Detective: Night Country, the latest installment of the series will take place in the frigid Arctic regions of Alaska. “When the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, the six men that operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace,” per the official description. “To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves, and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.”
Shaw will play Rose Aguineau, “a survivalist with a past full of secrets.”
Additionally, John Hawkes (Deadwood), Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who), Finn Bennett (Domina) and Anna Lambe (Trickster) have also boarded the ensemble. Hawkes will portray a police officer with old grudges, while Eccleston is the regional Chief of Police, who has a long history with Foster’s character.

Which of today’s TVLine Items pique your interest?
Lukas is getting a lot of work. Good for him.
Hope True Detective is good, there’s a lot of talent in the new series.
Finally Gangs of London will return. It will be hard to top the first season.
“But underneath, Adam is hiding a trove of secrets and papering over problems with heavy self-medication.
Adam is also protected by his personal security guard-slash-driver-slash-drug dealer Vic (Sean Pertwee), who is not afraid to get his hands dirty to help cover up Adam’s indiscretions.”
I forgot Lukas is in the next season of YOU as well. Based on his extensive history of gay roles, I’m calling it, his character Adam is gay. (One of his secrets is he’s involved with Vic, clearly).
