Fiona Shaw has joined Jodie Foster in the all-star cast for the fourth season of True Detective, True Detective: Night Country.

The anthology series will see two-time Oscar winner Foster take on her first adult television role in a cast that also includes world champion boxer-turned-actor Kali Reis, John Hawkes (Deadwood), and Christopher Eccleston (The Leftovers) alongside Killing Eve's Shaw.

HBO says the new season takes place when "the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska, and the six men that operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanish without a trace".

"To solve the case, Detectives Liz Danvers (Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Reis) will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves and dig into the haunting truths that lie buried under the eternal ice," HBO continues.

Co Cork's Shaw will play Rose Aguineau, "a survivalist with a past full of secrets".

She can currently be seen in the Star Wars spin-off series Andor.
