HBO releases dark 'True Detective' Season 2 trailer

'True Detective' is back and will be intense, by the looks of a new trailer

"Sometimes your worst self is your best self," says Vince Vaughn’s villainous character in the opening of the new trailer for Season 2 of “True Detective.” 

The one-minute preview released by HBO on Thursday shows Vaughn’s serious, intense side as crime boss Frank Semyon.

The second season will revolve around Vaughn and three police officers -- Ray Velcoro played by Colin Farrell, Ani Bezzerides played by Rachel McAdams and Paul Woodrugh played by Taylor Kitsch.

“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,” reads a description on HBO's website.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson starred in the first season of the twisted crime drama. 

The second installment of the popular series begins June 21.
