In time for the June 21 return of the second season, HBO has released a new teaser for its hit show, True Detective, and unlike the last one, this one actually features some dialogue. If you saw the first season, you’ll agree with me that the show is one of the best we’ve seen in a while, and it would be a tall order for the second season to top it.
This might be the reason HBO has decided to take an entirely different approach with the second season. Reports have it that the network had hoped the first season would be critically acclaimed and win lots of awards. While it achieved the former, the last awards season went by without either of its lead actors walking away with any award.
With the second season, HBO is going for a more commercial feel. Like most other series on Television, the show will have quite a lot of directors before the second season ends. The quality of actors as well as timing for the release of season 2 might also suggest that those at the Network’s headquarters aren’t exactly thinking of the coming award season. Whatever they decide to do, i just hope it comes out well.
Set in Los Angeles, the second season of stars Taylor Kitsch, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn and unlike the first one, will not feature any occult themes.
I love True Detective, so no matter what they decide to do with the second season, I’ll still be watching. Catch the new teaser below.
