Olivia Colman is the evens favourite to star in Season Five of True Detective

Betting is now available on Season Five of hit HBO series True Detective with bookies offering odds on who will star as one of the lead detectives for next season's case.

True Detective has ran for more than 10 years now with the past four seasons all airing on HBO with show creator Nic Pizzolatto only involved as an executive producer on Season Four.

Each season has different lead detectives and it'll likely be the same for Season Five with Paddy Power's latest market putting British actress Olivia Colman as the heavy favourite at evens to star.

Surprisingly though Kali Reis is a joint second favourite to star in the show despite appearing alongside Jodie Foster in "Night Country" which was the sub-name given to Season Four.

February saw the official confirmation that True Detective had been renewed by HBO for a fifth season following the success of True Detective: Night Country.

Issa López, the creator of Season Four of the show, will once again be at the helm for the fifth season as part of a new deal that she has signed with HBO.

“HBO trusted my vision all the way, and the idea of bringing to life a new incarnation of ‘True Detective’ with Casey, Francesca and the whole team is a dream come true. I can’t wait to go again," said López.

Jodie Foster and Kali Reis starred in the latest season of the show

Season Four of True Detective saw detectives Liz Danvers (Jodie Foster) and Evangeline Navarro (Kali Reis) investigate a mysterious disappearance of eight men in an arctic research centre in Alsaka.

The traditional twists and turns that we've grown to love from True Detective were here again this season and it's expected that we'll have more of the same in Season Five.

At the time of writing, neither Foster or Reis are attached to the next season and the show tends to change it's lead detectives in each season.
