The second season of True Detective premieres on HBO next month, which makes the trailer the network released today a welcome sight among fans.
The second season of the drama will follow three cops and a career criminal, brought together by a strange murder. The show is an anthology series and creator Nic Pizzolatto recently confirmed that there will be no ties from one season to the next, unlike another popular anthology series American Horror Story. “There’s no relationship between the stories or characters, which was the result of fully committing to something new, but I do think that the seasons have a deep, close bond in sensibility and vision, a similar soul, though this is a more complex world and field of characters.”
We’ve got the trailer, new season 2 pics and a full season description below:
True Detective Season 2 Description
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.
