True Detective Season 2 will be available watch online in the UK legally from Monday 22nd June.
The show, created by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga, initially premiered in January 2014 on HBO, before heading to the UK on Sky Atlantic in February. Fans frustrated by the wait last year, though, will be reassured to hear that the show is heading to British shores a lot faster the second time around: Monday 22nd June.
The drama’s second run will star Colin Farrell as Detective Ray Velcoro, Taylor Kitsch as Officer Paul Woodrugh, and Rachel McAdams as Detective Ani Bezzerides, with Vince Vaughn co-starring as a criminal. It will follow the corruption in California’s police force; a change in subject as well as cast from the first season, which saw Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey pursuing a serial killer in Louisiana.
The decision to show the second season here within 24 hours of its US broadcast follows a wave of similar decisions, as broadcasters try to eliminate any gaps in release dates and discourage piracy: The Walking Dead Season 5 and Game of Thrones Season 5 have both premiered in the UK the day following their US debut, both on Sky’s VOD service NOW TV, while Netflix UK has signed a raft of similar deals ranging from the latest seasons of Pretty Little Liars and Once Upon a Time to The Returned remake and Better Call Saul.
NOW TV gives non-Sky customers streaming access to Sky TV channels, including Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic. An Entertainment Pass, which costs £6.99 a month, allows users to watch True Detective live online when it is broadcast, or catch up afterwards on-demand.
