Get your first look at "True Detective" Season 3.

HBO released six pictures from the new season, which stars Oscar winner Mahershala Ali as Wayne Hays, a state police detective in 1980 Arkansas. Stephen Dorff sports an interesting wig as his partner, Roland West. And Carmen Ejogo plays Amelia Reardon, an Arkansas schoolteacher connected to two missing children.

The eight episode season will revolve around a "macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks" and set in three different time periods.

HBO recently announced Season 3 will premiere January 13 at 9 p.m.
