First Full Trailer for HBO’s True Detective

By Jacob Klein on Sep 8, 2013 to True Detective


It’s a big night for HBO.  The fall television season is ramping up and the Home Box Office is no slouch on the couch.  You’ve got the Boardwalk Empire season 4 premiere, the Newsroom season 2 finale, part one and now a trailer for the new series coming this January: True Detective.  Any HBO subscriber should be feeling pretty great about their monthly dues with the established shows and now this sure-to-be-incredible series.  

Here’s the trailer that aired tonight:

Can you wait until January?  Hopefully Nucky and the gang can keep you company until then.  We’ll get you an exact premiere date when we get the official go-ahead but we’re looking at either the 5th, 12th, 19th or 26th of January here so plan your lives accordingly!

Are you excited about seeing HBO getting back into the crime game once again? I wouldn’t want to jinx it or offend anyone out there by comparing this to The Wire but… well… there it is.

    I personally am not a fan of crime shows, mostly because every second drama on television is a crime show. But as this is HBO we’re talking about I will be watching True Detective just to kill time.

      I feel the same way. In most shows like CSI or SVU or NDINVONDOFJ or whatever they’re called these days, each episode is really a stand alone case. We know HBO will make this more of a character driven series rather than a bunch of sporadic murder cases. Thats what I’m hoping at least.

      Plus, we know these actors will kill it. No pun intended.
