Acclaimed crime drama returns


HBO has released a new trailer for the upcoming second season of True Detective.

Created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, the tense crime drama sees three police officers and a career criminal navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. Colin Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him, while Vince Vaughn is set to play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

Rachael McAdams also stars as Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch stars 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.

True Detective Season 2 will air on HBO in the US on Sunday, 21st June, with Sky Atlantic simulcasting the premiere at 2am the next day, Monday, 22nd June.
