Forget all the internet jokes and memes: "True Detective" season 2 is actually coming to HBO, and we've got the first teaser -- and character photos -- to prove it.
First, let's watch that teaser which is basically a bunch of sad faces and Los Angeles... Though it's really nice to see former "Friday Night Lights" star Taylor Kitsch fighting in the parking lot behind a bar. Also, how bad-ass does Rachel McAdams look in her police uniform? Very.
"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." That's the official plot summary, and here's the cast, with their character descriptions via HBO's release:
