'True Detective' Season 2 excels in quiet characterization and gorgeous visuals, but falls far short of its predecessor with a crowded and impotent central story. Our early spoiler-free review, before Sunday's Season 2 premiere on HBO!

True Detective Season 2 has managed to keep much of its core story under wraps, but with a June 21 premiere looming just one week after Game of Thrones’ Season 5 finale, HBO has uncovered several new spoilery descriptions of the next case. Find out who opens the “Western Book of the Dead” with the first synopses for True Detective Season 2 episodes!
In only two weeks the world of True Detective will expand beyond flat circles to bring us a Season 2 set in modern-day California, but will the combined talents of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch live up to the legend of McConaughey and Harrelson? Two new trailers firmly invite your judgement.
Surprised though we were to see True Detective Season 2 step into the light by its first teaser, the lack of dialogue made it difficult to get a grip on the new characters. Now, HBO’s dark and dreary drama goes full-stab ahead with an intense new trailer, and vibrant set of images to match.
It’s hard to believe that True Detective Season 2 will finally arrive in just under two months, given all the secrecy surrounding the HBO followup to 2014's cultural sensation. The world we deserve has been cut in half however, as HBO reveals teasery new characters posters of each lead, while creator Nic Pizzolatto reveals some surprising new details.
True Detective Season 2 surprised us all a few weeks back with the reveal of its first teaser trailer and photos, and the latest look goes right back to cryptic, because … well, time, and you know, circles. Get the world you deserve in our first look at True Detective Season 2's new motion poster!
After months and months of waiting, True Detective Season 2 is no longer a joke! Check out the first official trailer and photos for HBO’s dark and dreary masterpiece in its second incarnation, complete with June 21 premiere!
It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard anything substantial from True Detective Season 2, but for those wondering if the borderline-obscene sexuality quotient would remain intact, have we got a treat for you! Season 2 will apparently feature a “colossal orgy sequence,” recruiting real-life porn stars Amia Miley and Peta Jensen for aid.
Where can we find her, a woman like that? HBO’s ‘True Detective’ seeks to answer this very question, and will go straight to the source for an answer. That’s right, “Jessie’s Girl” artist Rick Springfield will lend his vocal and physical talents to the dark and dreary drama serial with a part in ‘True Detective’ season 2, and we’d tell you who he is, but the point is probably moot.
Observing the pre-production and casting process of ‘True Detective’ season 2 has long been an exercise in rumor control. For months now, we’ve talked about the roles and supporting cast of actors like Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, despite the fact that HBO could only confirm Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn officially cast. Now at least, Kitsch and McAdams have formally joined the party, while Kelly Reilly too has been set in a supporting role.
