Video: The First Teaser For 'True Detective' Season 2

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Put away the #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag jokes, your first look at the second season of the HBO series has finally arrived.

The first episode of True Detective's second season is set to air on June 21, and this time the series is set right in Southern California. It looks like Colin Farrell has the Matthew McConaughey role this time as Ray Velcoro, a tough-looking "compromised" detective sporting a serious stache in the fictional industrial city of Vinci. Rachel McAdams is a Ventura County Sheriff's detective, and Taylor Kitsch is the motorcycle officer with the CHP who stumbles on the crime scene we assume sets off the chain of events. Of course what good is a Los Angeles-set crime conspiracy without a loathsome billionaire developer? Filling that role quite perfectly is Vince Vaughn. I bet that mansion orgy is at his house.

I think The Detectives will be the best character again, what about you?
