New Trailer For HBO's True Detective

'We got a rabid dog out there somewhere...'

HBO has a new trailer for its upcoming detective series True Detective and it's more zinger-filled than a Louis CK sandwich. We're excited to see Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson reunited at last and the pair look like they're having a blast driving around, solving crimes, shooting the shit and reminiscing about EDtv and Surfer, Dude.

The show's premise has Louisiana 'tecs Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) scouring the state for a serial killer on the loose. And he's been on the loose for some time. The case relates to a strange, unsolved murder dating back to 1995 and it's been reopened, leaving the pair of lawman to follow up some long-cold leads.

Aside from boasting a pair of actors at the top of their game, HBO's crime drama looks sure to delve into some pretty dark terrain. The subdued colour palette is a world away from the lurid Louisiana of Treme. Even its new poster seems to a serious case of SAD.

HBO debuts True Detective in the US on January 12. No word on UK airing date yet, but this is one we'll be looking out for.
