True Detective Season 2 Sneak Peek: Rachel McAdams Gets Stabby

Judging by HBO’s intense new trailer for Season 2 of True Detective, Rachel McAdams is quite the mean girl detective.

The latest incarnation of the series — starring McAdams, Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch — follows a trio of police officers and a career criminal who find themselves navigating “a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”

In the teaser, McAdams shows off some impressive knife skills as Ani Bezzerides, a member of the Ventura County police department who is often at odds with the “poisoned” system that doesn’t even care about a missing girl.

Also spotted in the sneak peek: Kitsch patrolling the streets as a motorcycle cop; Vaughn advising that “sometimes, your worst self is your best self”; and a battered Farrell as a compromised detective.

Season 2 debuts Sunday, June 21 at 9/8c.

    Wow!! Looks a lot more intense with action than the first season. I love Rachel in almost anything she does!

  2. James says:

    Now Colin Farrell can really play intense but that would depend on how much profanity is allowed in a TV show, Taylor Kitsch is trying hard to get the ugly look like Brad Pitt, McAdams is not really butch enough to be convincing as the indefatigable tough girl cop, this show will have to work hard to beat season one.

    It’s gonna be bad a**!! Can’t wait.

  4. Celesta says:

    Still think it would’ve been cooler to see two female detectives as the leads.

    Brings to mind that scene in a Dirty Harry movie where a Captain chews out Callahan for carrying a switchblade in addition to his .44

    If she stabs Vince Vaughn in the first scene, I’ll watch this.
