Starring Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey, who played in Interstellar: the triumph of anthropology and Woody Harrelson, the show True Detective averaged 2.3 million viewers in the United States. It won one Emmy Award out of the five it was nominated for. The show is engineered as an anthology, thus each season of True Detective will introduce new cast, characters, setting, and self-contained narratives - meaning neither McConaughey nor Harrelson will be returning for season 2. The first episode of the new season will air on the 21st June and will contain a lot of changes.

True Detective [2014] is an American crime drama Series from HBO, which has been highly acclaimed by critics and became one of the most successful Television series in its first season (overall rating of 84% on Rotten Tomatoes and 9.3 on IMDB). The new cast looks just as powerful as the first one, Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch will be starring in this season.

This time around True Detective will feature a police officer and war veteran Paul Woodrugh (Kitsch) who discovers a crime scene, attracting detectives Ray Velcoro (Farrell) and Ani Bezzerides (McAdams) to the investigation. To spice things up a career criminal and entrepreneur Frank Semyon (Vaughn) also gets involved in the matter.

The setting has changed from the endless fields of Louisiana to Southern California, with the action taking place in the interior of Los Angeles County and the Pacific coast above Malibu. True Detective will also address a commonly cited drawback of the show that its female characters were underdeveloped and in some cases treated as objects.

Season 2 amends this problem, by placing McAdams in lead role as a flinty detective who packs multiple knives and is eager to prove just how tough she is.

The show has received positive reviews from critics so far, who have had the privilege to watch the new episodes before the official premiere on the 21st June. "It's still the kind of show that makes TV viewers reach for phrases like golden age of television drama" - wrote for example the New York Daily News.

Fortunately one thing remained the same, the story (which will be once again 8 episodes long) was created and written by the same Nic Pizzolatto, who led season 1 to success.

Don't give up your hopes on TV shows this summer, because True Detective is not the only TV show that will be returning this June. For example Strike Back, Hannibal and Falling Skies will all be arriving with new episodes.
