Watch this: True Detective series two on Sky Atlantic

Colin Farrell stars in True Detective series two

True Detective, Monday June 22, Sky Atlantic

HBO'S hit crime drama True Detective returns for its second series on Sunday night with a brand new cast and setting.

Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn head up the show's latest crop of acting talent alongside the likes of Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch and David Morse, for a murder-mystery storyline set on the west coast of the US.

Fans of the southern gothic-flavoured first series starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey (who are not returning) will be tuning in with high expectations – including a strong desire for a more satisfyingly realised season finale than we got last time around.

One thing's for sure: series two won't be based around "the secret occult history of the US transportation system" as originally planned by True Detective creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto before cooler heads de-railed the notion.
