New True Detective season 2 trailers debut

Posted on

We’re just weeks away from the return of True Detective, and if you’re not compromised already, HBO’s latest two trailers might do the trick.

One takes a wordless, pulse-pounding look at the escalating tension that binds Los Angeles detective Ray Velacro (Colin Farrell), criminal Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), Ventura County Sheriff’s detective Ani Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams), and motorcyle cop Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch), whose paths cross after Woodrugh discovers a crime sceneIn the other, more revealing trailer, Velacro questions whether he’s even supposed to solve this case at all. 

Both promos feature car chases, lavish houses, plenty of brooding, and just enough shots of the L.A. traffic to ensure that we’re all stressed out from here until the show’s return.

The second season of True Detective premieres June 21 on HBO.
