The long wait for “True Detective” news is over. Not only did HBO announce the premiere date for Season 2, but the pay cable network also released the first trailer. Watch it above.

Starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, the first teaser for “True Detective” Season 2 features no dialogue. Only the haunting melody plays over the dramatic actions of the four stars, all of which look as somber and serious as the storyline requires. 

Read the official synopsis provided by HBO and check out the first official images below. “True Detective” is written and created by Nic Pizzolatto. The first two episodes of Season 2 were directed by Justin Lin. 

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. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.
