True Detective Season 3 Casting Call Hints Plot Connection To Vietnam

True Detective Season 3 will take a long time to hit the small screens but the recent updates regarding the show suggest the wait may all be worth it.

A recent casting call from Backstage has revealed some interesting details about the upcoming seasons’ plot. It looks like there’s a possibility that season 3 will delve or touch upon the Vietnam War as well or at least a part of the plot.

The casting call reveals that Asian, Southeast Asian/Pacific Islander talent is required for the role. The first role is searching for a Male between the age of 18-49 to portray as Vietnamese Soldiers.

The other requirement is searching for males and females above the age of 18 to play as Vietnamese Civilians. Filming will take place on June 7 in the Northwest Arkansas area. Head over to Backstage website to apply for the role.

For those unaware, True Detective Season 3 events will unfold in the southern region of Missouri where it will tell the story of a macabre crime that took place in the hearts of the Ozarks.

The story will be told over decades in three separate time periods. So, perhaps, one of the timelines may involve Vietnam or possibly an event from the Vietnam War itself. This is just mere speculation at present but once cameras start rolling, we can expect to get our answer.

Earlier this May, Deadline broke the news that two more actors are joining the star-studded casts of season 3. Quantico fame actor Josh Hopkins and actress Jodi Balfour, known for her role in The Crown will recur in the third season of the anthology. Young actor Lonnie Chavis from This Is Us will also star along.

At present, the number of episodes that will make up True Detective season 3 is currently unknown. Moreover, its premiere date has also not been announced yet but it will be in 2019.
