‘What’s the Deal?’ With Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn in ‘True Detective’ (Video)

Jeff Sneider investigates the second season of the crime series, which debuts Sunday night on HBO

The second season of HBO’s acclaimed crime series “True Detective” kicks off a new investigation on Sunday night and TheWrap‘s reporter Jeff Sneider has seen the first three episodes.

“Fast and Furious” filmmaker Justin Lin takes over the director’s chair vacated by Cary Fukunaga, while Nic Pizzolatto returns as writer and executive producer. Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn star alongside Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch.

This week’s “What’s the Deal?” breaks down the characters and the casting — and perhaps most importantly, avoids all major plot spoilers. After all, “True Detective” is best enjoyed with a sense of mystery intact.

Watch the video below to see how the new season compares to the first in Sneider’s opinion, and be sure to come back and leave a comment on Sunday night after you’ve seen the first episode.
