One of the big TV hits/obsessions of last year, HBO's True Detective, returns June 21 with an entirely new cast -- Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch -- and crime:

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, LA County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life's work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. Rachel McAdams is Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff's detective often at odds with the system she serves, while Taylor Kitsch plays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle cop for the California Highway Patrol who discovers a crime scene which triggers an investigation involving three law enforcement groups, multiple criminal collusions, and billions of dollars.

Are you interested in a McConaughey-free True Detective? And what will the soundtrack be like? You can check out the unsurprisingly moody teaser trailer for True Detective Season 2 below.

For those without cable, HBO has finally gotten into the subscription business with HBO Now which is offering a one-month free trial (just in time for this weekend's Game of Thrones season premiere).
