HBO reportedly passed on Dark Winds because it was too similar to True Detective. Turns out Dark Winds is *so much better* than True Detective. https://t.co/fmbP5HrsRv

The plot unfolds in the 1970s in the United States in the lands belonging to the Navajo tribes. According to the law of the country, indigenous people solve all the problems on the reservations by themselves, and the state police and other representatives of the law enforcement forces do not have the right to act on the territory of the tribes without permission. In the story, serial murders begin to occur on one of the reservations, gradually expanding into non-Indian territories as well. Two investigators Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee begin investigating and the discoveries they make will cause the partners to consider asking the authorities to help in the investigation. The show’s release date is June 12, 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The investigation is not easy for the partners, there are many unclear moments in the case, there are no witnesses, and the heroes’ views on life greatly interfere. Joe is a 40-year-old policeman, he respects the achievements of science and progress and denies mystical beliefs and other features of his people. Jim, despite his young age, respects culture and traditions, which often becomes the cause of stumbling with his experienced colleague. This fact does not prevent men to get to the bottom of the truth and find out that the killings – are just part of a larger conspiracy, which they can not uncover on their own. The release date of the series Dark Winds is June 12, 2022.
The series Dark Winds is not the first attempt to adapt the book. Robert Redford already did it ,in the 90s, but disagreements with the director led to the closure of the project. The current show has six episodes planned, but there is every chance of a sequel, as the Joe and Jim series has 18 books, and given their popularity in the United States, if the first season is successful, AMC is very likely to want to shoot a new season. The main roles in the novelty are played by Zahn McClarnon and Kayowa Gordon, in addition, viewers will see Noah Emmerich, Rayne Wilson and others on screen. The show’s release date is June 12, 2022.
