New characters.

More intense feelings.

Loud noises.

Pointy things going into wooden things.

Colin Farrell in a cowboy hat.

That’s right. It’s the latest trailer for the second season of HBO’s True Detective. This longer trailer tells us a whole bunch about our new main cast.

Rachel McAdams is a lady police officer and she will straight stab a perp. She is concerned about a missing girl.

Colin Farrel is a guy that likes to punch things that tear up his knuckles. He also enjoys facial hair and haircuts that make him look like a fifty year old strip club owner.

Vince Vaughn likes suits, intense conversations, and setting fires.

Taylor Kitsch rides a motorcycle like Ponch and has scars on his body like Bonnie in The Craft. He has been hurt in the past.

You guys, it’s gonna be super okay!

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. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.
