"True Detective" (TV show) is a drama series on HBO.

Season 1

The first season stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as Louisiana detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart, whose lives collide and entwine during a 17-year hunt for a killer, ranging from the original investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 to the reopening of the case in 2012.

As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they'd left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.

Michelle Monaghan ("Mission: Impossible III") also stars as Hart's wife, Maggie, who struggles to keep her family together as the men in her life become locked in a cycle of violence and obsession. The cast also includes Kevin Dunn ("Veep") as Major Quesada, the supervising officer in 1995; Tory Kittles ("Sons of Anarchy") and Michael Potts ("The Wire") as Detectives Papania and Gilbough, the investigators now probing Hart and Cohle for answers.



Season 2

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.

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 ("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 ("True Blood") as Lt. Kevin Burris.

Among the guest stars this season are Lolita Davidovich ("Raising Cain"), W. Earl Brown ("Deadwood"), David Morse ("Treme") and Rick Springfield ("Hard to Hold").

"True Detective" is written and created by Nic Pizzolatto ("The Killing"), who executive produces along with Steve Golin and Scott Stephens. The first season is directed by Cary Fukunaga ("Sin Nombre," "Jane Eyre") who also serves as executive producer. Justin Lin directs the first two episodes of the second season.
