A second trailer for True Detective Season 2 has been released, deepening the mystery of the upcoming season. While it does delve a bit deeper – by that I mean it has dialogue – this trailer makes sure to keep the finer points of the story under wraps.

The original story surrounding the transit systemic California and the occult isn’t the direction of this second season of True Detective anymore, according to series creator Nic Pizzolatto. The official synopsis is as follows:
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.
MacAdams looks to be the main character in this new True Detective, but certainly all involved will have crucial roles in the plot. Justin Lin is directing the first two episodes of this new story. Season 2 of True Detective kicks off Sunday, June 21 on HBO.
