While we won't be welcoming the pointed ramblings of Rust Cohle back into our homes on Sunday night, we will be saying hello again to True Detective. As we've previously mentioned, Season 2 will be leaving the bayou behind and is jetting to the West Coast and will star Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. Farrell, McAdams, and Kitsch will be playing police officers, and Vaughn will take on the role of villian, and the four characters will come together amidst a bizarre murder as they each attempt to navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal.
Episode 1, “The Western Book of the Dead,” airs this Sunday, June 21st, and the synopsis is as follows:
The disappearance of a city manager disrupts a lucrative land scheme and ignites an investigation involving three police officers and a career criminal who is moving into legitimate business.
If Season 1 was any indication, expect the premiere to be laced with clues that might not make sense at first, but will leave us shaking our heads by the end. And it is with great excitement that we announce that Thomas Pluck will be returning again to cover Season 2 for Criminal Element, and if you want to relive all the unsettling mystery from last season, start with Tom's reaction to the pilot, “The Long Bright Dark.”
We'll see you Monday morning with more True Detective talk.
