About True Detective
Seasonal anthology series in which police investigations unearth the personal and professional secrets of those involved, both within and outside the law.
A 1995 murder case is revisited 17 years later, calling into question the supposed solving of the crime by Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, and reopening old wounds related to the detectives’ volatile partnership and personal lives. The enquiry unfolds in the present day through separate interrogations of the now former co-workers, who narrate the story of both the investigation and their lives, including why Cohle left Louisiana’s Criminal Investigation Division in 2002. As the timeline weaves between 1995 and 2012, Cohle and Hart are brought back to a world both thought they had left behind.
Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch star in Season 2 of ‘True Detective’, which weaves a web of conspiracy and betrayal around a bizarre murder in the scorched landscapes of Southern California. The disappearance of a city manager ignites an investigation involving Ray Velcoro, a police detective torn between his job and those he serves in the Mafia; Frank Semyon, a criminal/entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire; Ani Bezzerides, a sheriff’s detective whose resolute ethics are unpopular; and Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and highway patrol motorcycle cop with a troublesome past.
The third season received much stronger reviews in comparison to the previous and was marked as a return to form for the series. On Rotten Tomatoes, the season has a rating of 85%, based on 80 reviews, with an average rating of 7.41/10.
