Season 3 of True Detective has added four more cast members

If it's like the first season, we're definitely on board.

As Rust Cohle would say: "F***, I don't want to know anything anymore. This is a world where nothing is solved. Someone once told me, 'Time is a flat circle.' Everything we've ever done or will do, we're gonna do over and over and over again," and on that note, we're really hoping that True Detective repeats the magic of Season One.

Granted, Season 2 was OK, but it just doesn't compare to the magic that Harrelson and McConaughey captured.

After the Oscar-winning Mahershala Ali was announced in the lead, fans have started to get excited about what's in store.

It also helps that the extremely talented director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) and the show's creator, Nic Pizzolatto, are attached to direct the upcoming season.

Deadline have reported that Ray Fisher (Justice League) has been added as a series regular, joining Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy and Mamie Gummer.

Elsewhere, Rhys Wakefield (The Purge), Michael Greyeyes (Fear the Walking Dead) and Jon Tenney (The Closer) have been cast in recurring roles on Season 3 of the anthology drama.

Dorff will play Roland West, an Arkansas State Investigator who, along with his partner, has his life and career influenced over three decades by a baffling crime. Ali will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from northwest Arkansas with Fisher playing his son.

Season 3 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. Mmm, that plotline sounds like the creators have learned from the mistakes of the second season and are going back to what made the mystery of 'The Yellow King' so appealing.

If it can capture some of the magic from Season One, we're in for a treat.
