Warning: Minor spoilers ahead for “True Detective” season three. HBO’s “True Detective” anthology series is back and critics have mixed reviews. Many are rejoicing, because it’s far better than the second season. But others think that’s a low bar, and instead it’s simply redundant of the first season. “True Detective” returns to HBO on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
After a lengthy hiatus following the notoriously messy second season, HBO’s “True Detective” crime series is back for a third installment. This time starring Mahershala Ali, Steph Dorff, and Carmen Ejogo, the season is a standalone from the previous two.
