‘True Detective’ Season 2 Teaser Trailer “Comes To Those Who Have No Fear”

Here’s our first big look at season 2 of HBO’s anthology crime series True Detective.

Being a teaser trailer, there isn’t too much to unpack in the way of plot or characters (besides tensions galore), but we do get to see the new cast in action. Season 2 will reportedly take place in sunny California — a change from the dreariness hanging over Louisiana in season 1 — and star Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch.

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.
