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.
