DRAMA SERIES "TRUE DETECTIVE," STARRING COLIN FARRELL, VINCE VAUGHN, RACHEL MCADAMS AND TAYLOR KITSCH, RETURNS FOR SECOND SEASON JUNE 21, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

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 when TRUE DETECTIVE returns for its eight-episode second season SUNDAY, JUNE 21 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), followed by other episodes debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time, exclusively on HBO.

Colin Farrell (Golden Globe winner for "In Bruges") plays Ray Velcoro, a troubled detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn ("Wedding Crashers") portrays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. Rachel McAdams ("Midnight in Paris") plays Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff's detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. Taylor Kitsch (HBO's "The Normal Heart") portrays Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and a highway patrol motorcycle officer, running from a difficult past and the sudden glare of a scandal that never happened.

The cast also includes Kelly Reilly ("Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows") as Jordan Semyon, Frank's wife, a former D-list actress who is a full partner in his enterprises and ambitions; Christopher James Baker ("Gotham") as Blake Churchman; Afemo Omilami ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") as Police Chief Holloway; Chris Kerson ("CSI: Crime Scene Investigation") as Nails; and James Frain (HBO's "True Blood") as Lt.
