Reviews of the opening few episodes of Season 2 -

Based on the three episodes HBO sent to critics, the second season of True Detective is nearly as addictive as the first.

True Detective Is Back, and Here's What Makes It Great

......

Did I mention that the show also still a ton of fun? Pizzolatto is far too shrewd, and far too base, to let his grander meditations get in the way of a rollicking story. Unlike with season one, which was set in Louisiana and unfolded at a bayou-worthy pace, season two begins with its four main characters careening off the rails, and they're only gathering more speed. So okay, fine, season two isn't as good. Of course it's not. But so what? Give me more.

True Detective’s Second Season Is Brooding, Sour, and Totally Fascinating

.......

The result often plays like a cousin of The Wire as directed by Michael Mann — the kind of series that presents its broken, brooding heroes as if they were characters in an opera about the many different flavors of corruption, institutional and personal. It takes everything so seriously that you have to laugh at it a little bit, then admire it for being true to whatever it’s trying to be and not really giving a damn what you think of it. You’ll probably miss the humor of the first True Detective — the needling banter between Cohle and his partner, Woody Harrelson’s Marty Hart, that spawned a thousand memes and probably made the graphic violence and philosophical monologues palatable to a wide audience — but the brooding sourness of this one is fascinating in a different way, though it loses points for showing us a world that feels far more familiar than the one showcased in season one.

At least in the first three episodes of True Detective season two, that magic is missing. Maybe when the various strands of the complicated story come together, the payoff will be there. Or none of that could happen. And what we’ll get is a sophomore slump. The pressure is now on for the remaining five episodes.

The Bottom Line: Let's just say it's no season 1.

Score a second bullseye for “True Detective.”

HBO’s neo-noir crime mystery franchise returns next weekend with a new cast, new city, new era, new case and new look.

But the switch to Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn instead of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey has left one detail intact. It’s still the kind of show that makes TV viewers reach for phrases like “golden age of television drama.”

4 out of 5 stars

HBO confirms cast of Season 2 -

Nic Pizzolatto's drama series 'True Detective' is set to begin production of its second season this fall in California. The eight-episode season will focus on three police officers and a career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. The cast includes Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly.

Season 2 will star 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 will play Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner." Kelly Reilly will play Frank's wife, Jordan, "a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions."

Rachel McAdams will be Ani Bezzerides, "a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves." Taylor Kitsch's character will be 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."
The first two episodes will be directed by Justin Lin.

Previews/Reviews

If you watch only one new show this year, make it HBO's True Detective. First four episodes are extraordinary: tense, terrifying, sublime.


Rich and absorbing, this eight-part drama quickly vaults into elite company, offering a singular voice that’s unlike almost anything else on TV.


I’ve watched three of the eight episodes of True Detective, and I can’t remember a recent show that’s excited me more.


Based on the mesmerizing first few episodes, McConnaughey is an early favorite to win many TV awards next year, Harrelson isn't far behind him, and the idea of having a single writer and a single director (Cary Fukunaga) has paid off in a show that on paper sounds like so many others, but in practice feels like nothing else.


True Detective has three immediately impressive attributes. The acting -- by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson -- is off the charts. The writing and the concept, by series creator and novelist Nic Pizzolatto, undulates from effectively brash soliloquies to penetratingly nuanced moments carried by sparse prose. Lastly, director Cary Joji Fukunaga has created a beautiful, sprawling sense of place (the series is shot and set in Louisiana). With Pizzolatto writing all eight episodes and Fukunaga directing all eight, there's an overt sense of shared vision going on (at least in the four episodes sent by HBO). Perhaps that's why this series seems so immediately self-assured, as if it was already in its third season. No doubt the chemistry between McConaughey and Harrelson is the driving force behind that.


Yes, True Detective is all that. And maybe more. Count me in -- HBO just seriously and damagingly raised the stakes vs. Showtime.


87% on Metacritic so far - http://www.metacritic.com/tv/true-detective

Will there be a poster where McConaughey is leaning on someone/thing?

Just started watching and judging by the crime scene I'm going to say the murderer is Mads Mikkelsen.

Well, I might be hooked already. The characters already feel three-dimensional and the non-linear narrative gives a little edge to the storytelling that I felt Hannibal missed. Certainly the premise and the start are intriguing. I appreaciate how many actors from The Wire have made it into the cast as well.

That was a very good start to a series. This is a must watch now for me. Hell even Harrelson wasn't annoying in this either.

Great start, Emmy nominations already in the bag.

Already wondering who they'll get for next season though.

Ratings -

Despite competition from the Golden Globes, new drama True Detective took in 2.3 million viewers during its inaugural telecast. That's the biggest HBO premiere since Boardwalk Empire in 2010.

Really enjoyed that first episode. I'm already playing "spot the serial killer", but while I have a couple of suspects I have absolutely no basis on which to back it up beyond "They look a bit dodgy" or just plain old "I'm gonna say it's him".

I'll be interested to see where they take it. McConaughey was fantastic as well.

That was a strawberry floating incredible first episode and McConaghy was superb. Can see this being one of my top 5 shows of the years if it keeps up the quality.

I think it may be different actors and storyline per season. Just hope they keep the high quality of actors throughout.

Best performance I've ever seen from McConaughey, I am very impressed. The music kicking in at the end was great too.

Yep American Horror Story style but hopefully better than that.
