True Detective: Season 2 Teaser Trailer, Release Date, Synopsis


HBO has just unveiled the first trailer for the second season of its much acclaimed anthology crime drama series “True Detective”. They’ve also confirmed an earlier premiere date than expected – June 21st.

Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams star in the new season which is set in Los Angeles. Vaughn plays a career criminal and the others are cops who must all navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.  I agree with Night Rider when he says you can get more pedigree out of an anthology because the writer is burdened by future commitments.

I hope they retain the theme/intro from the first series though which was totally badass.  I’m not liking this sample soundtrack.  Anyhow if you haven’t caught the first season, trust us, treat yourself to that Blu-Ray box set.  Now here is a synopsis and that teaser.

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. 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.
