It’s Official: I’m Watching True Detective This Season

"About Time" Munich Screening

As much as I had problems with the misogyny and storybaiting in season one of True Detective, I just may have to watch season 2…

HBO has confirmed some of my favorite actors are making appearances in the drama, including Rachel McAdams as the female lead, and my future husband Taylor Kitsch in a supporting role. Also just cast was  Black Box alum Kelly Reilly, whom I don’t know at all so she better be GOOD.

The eight-episode second season is now in production in California, and centers around three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a post-murder web of conspiracy (like THE NET? God, I hope so).  THR reports:

Colin Farrell will play 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 is set as 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.

McAdams will play Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s Office detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Kitsch is set as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the CHP who is running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened. Reilly is Jordan, Frank’s wife and a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions.

Season two, like season one, will be written and mostly cast by Nic Pizzolatto.  I’m going to be all over this season, so check my twitter feed if you want in on some laughs and sweet recap action.  Either way, will YOU be watching?
