Watch the first teaser for True Detective's new season

New, 29 comments

The time is here: HBO has released the first teaser trailer for the new season of True Detective. If you've been worried that the show will lose its world-weary sensibility, you can rest assured. The clip features dismal, slow-motion clips of Colin Farrell — in full Miami Vice mustache mode — along with Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor "Tim Riggins" Kitsch, all staring mournfully at the horizon, at lighters, at each other, and even at you.

While series creator Nic Pizzolatto remains the writer of the series, things have switched up a bit on the directorial front this time around. The show's first season was directed entirely by Cary Fukunaga, but this season will be kicked off with a number of episodes from Justin Lin, the filmmaker that helped turn the Fast & Furious franchise into a global action juggernaut. The new season of True Detective will debut on HBO on June 21st.
