True Detective: Season Two Trailer Released

The second run of HBO's anthology show arrives in June

It's time to say hello to a heavily-mustached Colin Farrell as the gritty trailer for True Detective's second season is released. 

The HBO anthology series – the first season of which starred Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as Louisianan detectives Marty Hart and Rust Cohle, plagued by a 17-year long murder case – will return this June after a complete shake-up. 

Shunning southern state America for the Californinan west coast, the lead detectives this time around are Farrell's bolo-tie wearing Ray Velcoro and Rachel McAdams' Ventura County Sheriff Ani Bezzerides; even Friday Night Lights' Taylor Kitsch appears in a law enforcement role as Highway Patrol cop Paul Woodrugh.

The guy causing them trouble will be Vince Vaughn as the entrepreneurial criminal Frank Semyon – especially considering Vecoro's on Semyon's payroll.  

So did the 60-second trailer divulge more about the new story series creator Nic Pizzolatto has cooked up? In a word, no.

Speaking to The Wrap back in August, he confirmed that the season will centre on: "the death of a corrupt city manager of a fictional California city who's found brutally murdered amid a potentially groundbreaking transportation deal that would forever change freeway gridlock in the state."

But if a dialogue-free trailer compiled of bust-ups, bar crawls and somebody wearing a balaclava in broad daylight ever convinced us we should be excited, this is probably the one.
