That’s right folks! The follow-up season to last year’s incredible HBO series, True Detective, is officially around the corner. It’s been silence since the cast members were announced, but HBO dropped a bomb this morning by not only announcing the premiere date (June 21st), but also offering a full synopsis and unveiling a minute-long 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.
Press play and start to guess what Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch have up their sleeves – then slap yourself when you are completely wrong.
