The time is almost hear for the highly anticipated second season of the HBO series True Detective. After a very successful season one with Woody Harrelson and Matthew Mcconaughey in the lead roles, the series is back with an all new cast and all new case.
The second installment stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. True Detective season two is written and created by Nic Pizzolatto and the first two episodes will be directed by Justin Lin.
HBO released the following synopsis for the second installment:
“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.”
