The first episode of True Detective‘s second season has aired, and the internet is already working double-time to react to the show’s return. Is it better than the first season, or even as good? Early reviews have some insight, but even they can’t make a definitive claim yet, as HBO only offered access to the first three of eight episodes. Whatever the show is at the opening, there’s a lot left to see.
HBO has offered something new to follow up the season premiere: a brief True Detective behind the scenes look, which features interviews with new stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Exec producer Scott Stephens shows up, too. You’ll see creator/writer Nic PIzzolatto at work, but he doesn’t appear as an interview; rather, the show is meant to be his voice. Read More »

True Detective Season 1 was one of the most talked-about shows of last year, inspiring a thousand thinkpieces and raking in award after award. All that acclaim set an awfully high bar for True Detective Season 2, which had the disadvantage of losing director Cary Fukunaga.
But hey, series creator Nic Pizzolatto was still on board, with a whole new setting, story, and cast (including Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch) to play around with. So do the new episodes live up to the show’s sterling reputation? Get the True Detective Season 2 review roundup after the jump. Read More »
The second season of True Detective arrives in just a couple weeks, on June 21, and the tension is rising as we await the debut of a new set of characters, played by Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch. The two primary promos so far — a teaser and a trailer — have left us with more questions than answers. And, frankly, we don’t really want the answers until the come from the show itself.
But if you’d like to have just a little something to tide you over, there’s more info via a new True Detective season 2 synopsis, and a premiere logline and some episode titles. Oh, and in case you’ve missed them, there are a couple short new video promos, too. Read More »

The first True Detective season two trailer was all slow shots of sad faces. This second one has a lot more character — we hear from a few of the major players, including the bad guy played by Vince Vaughn, and the cops played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. The real standout so far looks to be McAdams, who comes off like a total badass in this footage. Check out the new True Detective trailer below. Read More »
There’s a set of four new True Detective season 2 character posters, but they almost do more to obscure the quartet of new leads than they do to reveal them. We see the new leads Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but their eyes are all cropped out of each image. There’s an ominous tagline, “We get the world we deserve,” and with these designs we have to wonder if any of these characters can see that new world coming.
See those posters below, and get some comments from creator/writer/producer Nic Pizzolatto about the new season. Read More »
True Detective season two will premiere on June 21 on HBO, and now you can see the first footage from the new season. This tease doesn’t offer much, but the very first shot of a California highway interchange seems to link right to early reports about the season. Then there are shots of the primary cast, including Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, with some atmosphere that is similar to that of the first season — this looks just as heavy — but with a feel that is distinctly different. Check out the first True Detective S2 teaser below. Read More »

As True Detective zeroes in on a female lead, Funny or Die is here to show HBO what they could do with two female leads. Specifically, two extremely small female leads played by Kate Mara and Ellen Page.
In the True Detective parody Tiny Detectives, Mara and Page prove to be every bit as tough, determined, and grizzled as Rust Cohle and Marty Hart ever were. But they face all sorts of challenges that Cohle and Hart never had to, because they’re just so damn short. Watch Tiny Detectives after the jump.
