True Detective Season 2: Watch the New Trailer !
So what do you think about the new trailer. Hm, maybe it wont be that bad after all?
After the disappointing news who they cast for this follow up we had very low expectations, but hey, the trailer does look promising…
True Detective Season 2 starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch premieres 6/21.
Have a look at the new trailer down below:
In January 2014, Pizzolatto signed a two-year contract extension with HBO, effectively renewing the series for two additional seasons. Much like its predecessor, season two ofTrue Detective will consist of eight episodes, all to be written by Pizzolatto. However, the responsibility of directing will be assigned to several people; Justin Lin is in control of the first two episodes, and, as of July 2014, William Friedkin was being considered as a director of later episodes. Fukunaga will resume his duties as an executive producer, but will no longer be directing as he did in season one.
The success of True Detective, and its subsequent renewal, fueled casting rumors in the press. At one point, early media reports named Cate Blanchett, Josh Brolin, Joaquin Phoenix, Garrett Hedlund, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Christian Bale, Elisabeth Moss, and Brad Pitt to be among a raft of potential candidates for the leads. The season’s first significant casting was Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, which he revealed in his September 2014 interview with the Sunday World. Vince Vaughn, playing the role of Frank Semyon, became HBO’s next important signing toward the end of the month. By November, True Detective ’s principal cast expanded to include Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, and Rachel McAdams. Afemo Omilami joined the project the following month, rounding out the principal cast.
