Itching to learn what chilling secrets True Detective: Night Country özgü in store in episode 5? Then you’re in luck: We get to watch it a full two days early.
According to a press release from Max, episode 5 will get an early streaming premiere at 9 p.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 9, ahead of its HBO premiere at the usual time of 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 11. The Friday streaming drop takes Night Country out of direct competition with the Super Bowl — and gives us two extra days to work on our fan theories about what happened to the Tsalal scientists.
HBO pulled a similar move last year with an episode of The Last of Us that coincided with the Super Bowl. However, the series returned to its regularly scheduled airtime in the following weeks, and Max özgü confirmed in a press release that the Night Country finale will air on Sunday, Jan. 18.
