Holy shit. Looks like today is the day for reveals apparently. First one of the world's biggest video game franchises, and now HBO has graced us with what in the previous year has been quite possibly the most speculated show not on television: True Detective is back with season 2!
It has a cast (Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Vince by god Vaughn)! A setting (California possibly present day)! It even has a teaser trailer!
Here it is:
That's right folks, people are back to doing dirt, some of them look to be police, and they are scored to some sweet T-Bone Burnett soundtracks. True Detective this does ring.
While this time it seems we won't be blessed with the gods Harrelson and McConaughey, given this is an anthology after all, the cast seems good. Looks like McAdams and Kitsch will be our police duo but this time we get two more main players. (It is season 2 after all, gotta do things bigger.) Vince Vaughn looks to be playing some lovelorn business man, probably with scumbag intentions. And as for Farrell, well he just looks to be playing a scumbag. A role, in this author's opinion, he was born to play.
Many questions arise: Will the characters all intertwine? Can they top the majesty of season 1? Will Ferrell and Vaughn be in something after a decade or so that I actually will enjoy?
We will see on June 21st, when the premiere goes down. Cannot wait!
