With the True Detective season 2 premiere now less than two weeks away, HBO has impressively been able to keep the show’s plot lines under wraps. Aside from a few cryptic, albeit cool, trailers, most of what we know about the upcoming show starts and ends with the cast and show’s location — Los Angeles.
HBO today rolled out a brand new trailer for the highly anticipated second season of True Detective. The new season will feature an entirely new cast from the first, this time starring Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsche, and Colin Farell in the lead roles.
Three of HBO’s biggest shows are returning this Sunday: Game of Thrones, Veep and Silicon Valley. We’re incredibly excited about all three, but none of them have quite the mystique surrounding them as does True Detective, a show which will replace its entire cast for its second season this summer.
We still only know bits and pieces about what True Detective will become, but on Thursday HBO released the first teaser trailer for season 2. More →
Now that the first season of True Detective has ended, we’re all anxiously awaiting season 2. Which sleuthing duo will replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson? Has the story of the Yellow King truly ended? Will Rustin Cohle ever shave that awful mustache?

In this video, YouTuber CREWgaming has “gamified” True Detective, shrinking Rust and Marty down to 8-bit (or so) proportions. It’s a fun distraction, but nevertheless contains plenty of harsh language and a few spoilers. You have been warned. More →
