A second trailer has been released for the highly anticipated return of True Detective, and I am so excited about this I can barely contain myself!
Yes the new season has multiple directors, and yes it won’t feature any sort of cult activity as previously rumoured, and yes it has an entirely new cast, but it looks astonishing. It is doubtful that it can match the sheer genius of the first season, but in all fairness, how could it possibly?
Check out the utterly thrilling new trailer below, and welcome the new cast who all look to be turning in incredibly strong performances. I had my doubts about Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch, but I must admit that they do look stunning in their roles, thank Christ.
True Detective returns to HBO on June 21st.
Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
The series is created and written by Nic Pizzolatto.
Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes.
Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.
Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.
Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.
Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.
Kelly Reilly as Jordan, Frank Semyon’s wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.
The series will be made up of eight hour long episodes.

Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.
