Will ‘True Detective: Night Country’ continue the Emmy-winning ways of the franchise?

HBO’s “True Detective” has returned with a roaring fourth season starring two-time Oscar-winner Jodie Foster. Officially titled “True Detective: Night Country,” the season follows Foster’s police chief as she investigates the disappearance of eight men from a research station in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska.

Fiona Shaw, Christopher Eccleston, John Hawkes and newcomer Kali Reis all shine in this acclaimed edition of the franchise, which we predict will compete in all the major categories at this year’s Emmys. However, before we look ahead to this season’s Emmy chances, let’s take a look back at the show’s history with the TV academy.

The first season, which was classified as a drama series, got off to a rocketing start with 12 nominations (including duelling bids for stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey). It won five of those races. However, seasons two and three, which were re-classified to be limited series, didn’t fare as well.

Season two, which starred Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn, fared the worst with only one nomination for its sound mixing. Season three, which showcased double Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, picked things up again with nine nominations, but was snubbed for the top prize.

The most nominated episodes were “Who Goes There” (season one episode four) and “The Great War and Modern Memory” (season three episode one). Let’s see if season four produces an episode that can snag more nominations or if, indeed, the season can reach the heights of the first season again.
