Can't wait for Season 3 of "True Detective"? The first two episodes of the HBO series will be screening nearly a month early at 18 Alamo Drafthouse theaters across the country.

Reserve your tickets now for the December 18 screening. Tickets are free with a $5 food and beverage voucher purchase. 18 and over, please.

If you can't make that, the series returns January 13 on HBO.

Season 3 "tells 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."


"Moonlight" Oscar winner Mahershala Ali stars as a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. Carmen Ejogo and Stephen Dorff (and his questionable wig) also star.

We're hoping the series is returning to the highs of Season 2 and not the terrible lows of Season 2.
