Excited to know what spooky secrets lie in store in episode 5 of True Detective: Night Country? Well, you’re in luck! We get to watch it a whole two days earlier than usual.
According to a press release from Max, episode 5 will be available for streaming at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, January 9th, ahead of its regular HBO premiere at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, January 11th.
This early streaming release is a strategic move to avoid direct competition with the Super Bowl. It also gives us two extra days to speculate and theorize about what happened to the Tsalal scientists.
HBO did a similar thing last year with an episode of The Last of Us that coincided with the Super Bowl. However, the series returned to its regular schedule in the following weeks. Max has confirmed that the Night Country finale will air on Sunday, January 18th.
Early Release Date:
- Friday, January 9th at 9 p.m. ET on Max
Regular HBO Premiere:
- Sunday, January 11th at 9 p.m. ET on HBO
Finale Air Date:
- Sunday, January 18th
