The hit HBO® drama series True Detective returns with a new case in which 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. One of the most-talked-about and most-watched shows of the summer (averaging 11 million viewers for the season), True Detective: The Complete Second Season will debut on Blu-ray (£45.95) and DVD (£35.73) on January 11th, 2016, giving fans a chance to go behind the scenes with a new star-studded cast and to dig deeper into the mystery of Season 2.
Both box sets include exclusive, never-before-seen bonus content including a 30-minute look at the production of a pivotal shoot out scene in episode 4.
Featuring an all new cast, Season 2 stars Colin Farrell (Golden Globe winner for In Bruges) as 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.
