Warrick Page/HBO(NEW YORK) — Restless ghosts from an apparently unsolved case drive the first full-length trailer for True Detective's upcoming third season on HBO.

Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali stars in the new season as Detective Wayne Hays, haunted decades later by the case of two children who went missing in the 1980s, as the trailer skips between the past and the present, reminiscent of the show's mind-bending first season.

True Detective season one, starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, was critically hailed, while season two — starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughan, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch — fell short of the inaugural season's high-water mark.

True Detective season three, also starring Stephen Dorff, Carmen Ejogo and Mamie Gummer, premieres January 13 on HBO.
