HBO has just released a gritty trailer for their upcoming serial narrative drama True Detective, which stars Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Matthew McConaughey (Mud) as two detectives brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked on in 1995 involving a serial killer in Louisiana.
The show floats back and forth between their questioning of the crime in the present day and the events that happened while they were investigating the homicide in 1995.
The dark trailer showcases both detectives struggling with the effects of having investigated such a twisted homicide case for the course of 17 years.
Watch the new trailer below:
True Detective premieres Sunday, Jan. 12, at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
