HBO’s True Detective: The Cast So Far

By Jacob Klein on Feb 21, 2013 to Featured Post, True Detective

News has been breaking regularly about HBO’s new crime series: True Detective.  The show will most likely enter production soon and fans of The Wire in particular are waiting on pins and needles for the latest tidbits because the show looks to bring HBO back to the contemporary crime underworld.  While series plot details are thin we are privy to a most of the main cast members at this point. Here are the True Detective cast members that we can confirm so far:

matthew-mconneheyMatthew McConaughey (Rust Cohle)

woody-harrelson  Woody Harrelson (Martin Hart) michelle-monaghan Michelle Monaghan (Maggie)

Kevin-DunnKevin Dunn (Maj. Quesada)

Tory-KittlesTory Kittles (Det. Papania)

Mike-PottsMichael Potts (Det. Gilbough)
Alexandra-Dadd Alexandra Daddario (Lisa Tragnetti)

Elizabeth-ReaserElizabeth Reaser (Laurie Perkins)

lili-simmonsLili Simmons (Underage Prostitute)
Jay-SandersJay O. Sanders (Televangelist)   Brad-Carter
Brad Carter (Victem’s Ex)

Wow what a show-stopping cast!  We’re sure this cast is going to expand a bit more before it hits HBO’s air so check back once in a while for the latest faces.  No premiere date to report just yet as the show hasn’t even been produced yet.

New trailer just says 2014. Our best guess is Q1, though considering it’s basically done filming now. Now with this trailer coming out in Spring 2013 I REALLY think it will most likely premiere/air in Q1 2014. Plus there’s a huge gap in HBO’s schedule in winter. Just speculation though.

Red, did you come to this page to find out when the third episode airs too lol it’s frustrating… I asked Siri three times in different ways and used my computer and still can’t find out when the new episode is on lol

I am puzzled by your prediciment. The show airs every Sunday night at 9:00pm. It will skip next week however due to the Super Bowl.

You could have found your answer in our “What’s On: HBO Schedule for January” post; used the schedule module on or gone to any number of sites that have TV listings like At any rate TRUE DETECTIVE, Episode Three airs on 01.26 at 9:00pm.

I am looking forward to a crime procedural done HBO style.
