'True Detective' Posters Warn 'We Get the World We Deserve'

HBO has teased the second season of its acclaimed crime anthology "True Detective" with a pair of ominous motion posters.

The first, which debuted at Entertainment Weekly, shows a rat's nest of crisscrossing highways from above; the second, released by the cable channel on Twitter, depicts a highway overpass, with a fire flickering in the distance. Both feature the words "We Get the World We Deserve."

Starring Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch, the eight-episode second season of the Nic Pizzolatto follows three cops and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy following a murder.

Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his bosses in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn is Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his plans to move into legitimate business are upended by the murder of his partner. McAdams portrays Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County, California, sheriff’s detective “whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves, while Kitsch is war veteran Paul Woodrugh, a California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer who’s running from a difficult past.

The second season of “True Detective” premiere June 21 on HBO.
