Season 2 of the Nic Pizzolatto drama will focus on three police officers and a career criminal navigating a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Judging by the new trailer, the police officers will have more on their plate than just catching bad guys.
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 Kitsch is playing Paul Woodrough, a handsome, 28-year-old military veteran who has seen his own share of violence and destruction. McAdams plays police detective Ani Bezzerides.
Vaughn portrays 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.
“True Detective” returns for Season 2 on Sunday, June 21 on HBO.
