After nearly four years off the air, HBO’s anthology crime drama True Detective returns to premium cable this Sunday, with Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff headlining this season’s decade-jumping missing persons case. Ahead of Sunday’s premiere, we sat down with the cast to discuss the journey to True Detective season three. For our final interview, we sit down with Carmen Ejogo to talk about the new season, and bringing a strong, female presence to True Detective.

Check out our interviews with Ejogo’s co-stars Stephen Dorff and Mahershala Ali.
