HBO Unveils ‘True Detective’ Season 2 Plot Synopsis

We’re less than two weeks out from the start of Season 2 of True Detective and HBO has finally pulled back the curtain on the plot for the new season of the anthology series.

From the press release:

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 when TRUE DETECTIVE returns.

Colin Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a troubled detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn portrays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. Rachel McAdams plays Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Taylor Kitsch portrays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and a highway patrol motorcycle officer, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.

The eight-episode second season of True Detective  will premiere on Sunday, June 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.
