Here’s Your First Look at True Detective Season 2

It’s been a long time coming, but HBO just released the first official teaser for the second season of True Detective. Gone are Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, and the supernatural overtones of the first season. In their place we have Colin Farrell (and that mustache!), Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, and Vince Vaughn in full-on serious mode.

The official description of the season is below:

“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.”

The series returns to HBO on Sunday, June 21. That isn’t nearly soon enough.
