HBO revealed the True Detective Season 2 cast details in a press release. The cast and characters are:
Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.
Vince Vaughn as 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 as Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves.
Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the California Highway Patrol, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.
Kelly Reilly as Jordan, Frank Semyon’s wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.
Additionally, True Detective Season 2 has a new logline: “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”
None of the new cast members will come as a surprise if you’ve been paying attention to the True Detective Season 2 casting process. Kitsch’s name was first floated over the summer, McAdams’ offer arrived in September, and Reilly’s involvement was first reported in October. But hey, it’s still nice to get confirmation.
Shooting on True Detective Season 2 is already underway in California. The new season will consist of eight hourlong episodes, with Justin Lin directing the first two installments. Series creator Nic Pizzolatto returns to pen all the episodes.
