The new season of the show will be centered on Detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, and it is set to take place in Ennis, Alaska.

When an extended period of winter night falls on the town, the six operators of the Tsalal Arctic Research Station suddenly disappear.

The detectives are then forced to look into their own dark pasts in order to solve the seemingly impossible task.

The new season of the program is set to be written and directed by Issa Lopez, who also serves as its showrunner and as one of its producers.
