True Detective Season 2 Trailer: Watch It Here
In anticipation of the new season coming Sunday June 21st, HBO has released the first teaser trailer for the second coming of True Detective.
Following the acclaimed first season led by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, showrunner Nic Pizzolatto has got even more movie stars on board for round two, which explores corruption within California’s law enforcement.
The one-minute teaser trailer shows Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch 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.
All we can say is, HBO’s done a damn fine job of making True Detective Season 2 look incredibly exciting in just 61 seconds! Bring on June 21st.
