Trio of True Detective Season 2 Posters Tease The Show We Deserve

By Jacob Klein on Apr 29, 2015 to True Detective


You’re probably still humming that haunting song from the True Detective Season 2 trailer that aired a few weeks ago, an original composed exclusively for HBO’s new show.  But you want more, right? Well, we expect a second TD2 trailer to drop in the coming weeks but until then HBO has three promotional posters for you.

But these aren’t just any posters!  They’re mini-videos.  Gifs, if you will.  Here’s the first one:

Sounds like Rustin Chole, to me.  Maybe we won’t miss him as much as we thought we might… okay we will.  Here’s another one with the same tagline:

Dark and eery just like we expect from this show.  We hope it captures, not the SAME atmosphere as season one did but an equally potent one.  Here’s the last poster for True Detective Season 2:

I take this line to mean “you reap what you sow” or maybe “humans don’t deserve utopia”. Leave us your own thoughts below.

True Detective season 2 premieres June 21st on HBO, the week following the conclusion of Game of Thrones season 5.  HBO Now subscribers should continue their subscriptions into the summer to continue receiving the best content on the planet.  If you don’t, you’ll get what you deserve.

  • Ellie Wilkin

    Fantastic! Looks like it’s going to echo the ‘noir’ style of the first season but in a city setting, LA Confidential styley. LIke it A LOT

  • Drew Douglas

    Looks good.

  • Eleonora Iafano

    Fantastic!! While I’ll be so sad when Game of Thrones ends, True Detective’s second season will give lots of people that edgy boost! Great posters. Gritty, dark and mysterious.
