True Detective debuts its Season 2 teaser trailer; show premieres June 21st

04.09.2015

In today's most excellent and kick-ass news, not only do we have a teaser trailer showing us the first footage from the second season of True Detective, but we also have word that the show will premiere June 21st! That's less than 3 months out, so if you've yet to see the first season (not that you need to, but you should), then I suggest you get on it! Season 2 will focus on 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. The officers in question will be played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Vince Vaughn will be playing the career criminal in what looks to be a breath of fresh air compared to the tame comedies he's been a part of lately. But enough of that, here's the teaser!

Anyone who's seen the first season of Nic Pizzolatto's True Detective can tell you that the hype is real, and the man has a great handle on writing fascinating characters for great actors to inhabit. While the vibe and casting of season 2 initially threw some folks off, I'm willing to bet this teaser will bring it right back home. Add to that the fact Justin Lin (FAST FIVE) is directing the first two episodes, and you have a show that may live up to it's stellar first season. Bring it, Pizzolatto!

Season 2 of True Detective will begin airing on June 21, 2015 on HBO.

L'Chaim, fatass

I like how it doesn't give much away, but still ends with a reassuring tease of the familiar "weird" elements that might be in store.

And I barely recognized Kitsch; after seeing him here, his character is now the one I'm most interested in. Am I the only one who thought for a second that it would be kind of funny if his character turned out to be a young version of Rust during his deep undercover days? I know this one's set in L.A, but still.

Vince Vaughn here gives me flashbacks to the sort of presence Bill Murray lent to Mad Dog and Glory. I'm expecting another meditation on damaged people and the human condition that just happens to be set in a procedural.

They have HUGE shoes to fill for this to be as good as season one. I pray they can pull it off. Vince Vaughn as a bad guy is an interesting start.

I hate to be a skeptic

But that trailer did not get me excited whatsoever. Unlike everyone else, I'm a bit skeptical of this. Not just the casting, but some of the directing decisions. Justin Lin?

So fucking badass

I'm not sure why people are bitching that it's not a carbon copy of the first series? Why would you want that? That had its moment, and it was fucking genius, but that time has passed. I'm stoked to see the next thing Pizzolatto has up his sleeve.

Some people seem to forget that it's anthology like AHS and Fargo.

I love how Farrell's character looks like the 40 year old version of his Sonny Crockett character.

Psyched!

So glad Vaughn dropped the weight...I was worried we'd have to look at a bloated carcass the whole series.

I know this is just a teaser

But it looked very generic to me, nothing like the strange and dark tone of the first season.

Nice to see my #1 actress crush of a decade finally getting some great roles for once instead of romance movies and crap like that DePalma movie she did. Matt ain't the only Mc that's getting the McConaissance.

Taylor Kitsch

Taylor Kitsch literally ruins everything. He is the worst part of any movie or show he has even been attached to. I really hope he dies early. This show should have just been Rachel, Vince and Colin. That is like a perfect cast. Adding Taylor Kitsch severely reduced the hype.

You ever hear of a show called Friday Night Lights?? Yeah he played a better essential role in it and I think it did pretty damn well for itself. He surely wasn't the worst part nor did he ruin anything. So before you make another ignorant claim....shut your mouth and know your role

Kitsch is pretty badass. It's really too bad he took on the double dick punch of John Carter and Battleship right out of the gates because he was setting up to be a major movie star. It's not like he was bad in them (alright, he was kind of bad in JC) but they both flopped, and John Carter was a huge movie. But its failure wasn't his fault. That movie was just a total mess.

Like the other guy said, he's the best part of FNL. He was good playing a hardass in Savages and he was great as Mike

True Detective is the road to redemption. I hope Ferrell, Kitsch and Vaughn follow it right back to the top.

By your logic, or lack thereof, McConaughey shouldn't be on the show because he's been a terrible actor before the current decade.

You don't become a great actor overnight. McConaughey had the goods, but he also had the good looks that distracted from them.

What's most exciting and interesting to me about this season's cast is that all of their films as of late haven't been that great (especially Vaughn) and this is sort of like a redemption for each cast member in a way to prove their worth again.
