True Detective 2 Gets UK Air Date
Good news for True Detective fans in the UK; Sky Atlantic has announced that we will see the Season 2 premiere just one day after it airs in the U.S! That means that the much-anticipated crime drama will finally hit our screens on Monday June 22, and our American friends won’t be able to ruin it with too many spoilers.
In case you missed it, here’s the first teaser trailer released by HBO, which shows cast members Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Vince Vaughn and Rachel McAdams in their gritty new roles.
We know so far that Kitsch plays a war veteran-cum-California motorcycle cop who uncovers a bizarre crime scene. The ensuing investigation then brings together Ray Velcoro (Farrell), Ani Bezzerides (McAdams) and Frank Semyon (Vaughn); a corrupt cop, a no-nonsense sheriff, and a career criminal, respectively. We were also very excited to spot British actress Kelly Reilly in the trailer, who plays Seymon’s long-suffering wife.
And in case you were wondering what that beautifully chilling song is, it’s a yet-untitled song performed by Nashville-based singer songwriter Lera Lynn, and co-written by Roseanne Cash and T Bone Burnett.
The first two episodes in the series have been directed by Justin Lin of Community and the Fast and Furious fame.
True Detective premieres on Sunday, June 21 on HBO in the US.
