Season 2

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, when True Detective returns for its eight-episode second season.

Colin Farrell (Golden Globe winner for In Bruges) plays Ray Velcoro, a troubled detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.

Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers) portrays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

Rachel McAdams (Midnight in Paris) plays Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff's detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.

Taylor Kitsch (The Normal Heart) portrays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and a highway patrol motorcycle officer, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.

The cast also includes Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) as Jordan Semyon, Frank's wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions; Christopher James Baker (Gotham) as Blake Churchman; Afemo Omilami (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) as Police Chief Holloway; Chris Kerson (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Nails; and James Frain (True Blood) as Lt. Kevin Burris.

Among the guest stars this season are Lolita Davidovich (Raising Cain), W. Earl Brown (Deadwood), David Morse (Treme) and Rick Springfield (Hard to Hold).

Season 1 of True Detective won five Emmy Awards and was nominated for 12 Emmys overall, while writer-creator Nic Pizzolatto received awards from the Writers Guild of America in the categories of Drama Series and New Series, among other honors.

True Detective was created and written by Nic Pizzolatto; executive producers, Nic Pizzolatto, Steve Golin and Scott Stephens; producer, Aida Rodgers.
