Rachel McAdams Is Back In This True Detective Season 2 Trailer

We've greatly missed our favorite Canadian, Rachel McAdams, so this teaser for True Detective season 2 seems especially promising. There's been a lot of speculation about the plot for this new season, and although this teaser doesn't give us much to go on, it's got plenty of atmosphere. Which is to say, there are plenty of close-up shots of Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn looking intense as hell, along with Taylor Kitsch getting into a fight and having a lot of feelings, along with some bonus McAdams-as-a-cop action. There's also a shot of the excellent English actress Kelly Reilly (Calvary, Black Box) as Vaughn's wife.

HBO's super creepy drama got a lot of well-deserved flack for focusing more on naked, dead female bodies than live female characters, although Michelle Monaghan was great. However, having McAdams as a lead could be a game-changer for this season, despite reports of not just any old orgy scene but "a deliriously vast, Eyes Wide Shut-caliber orgy sequence involving dozens of naked bodies." The report noted that Farrell and McAdams are present for the scene, but it's not clear if they're just like, "Oops, sorry! Wrong door!" or what.

If you're into possible spoilers, Satanic sex cults, and a whole lot of speculation, here are some rumors about the plot.

Until then, we'll be in our bunker studying maps of California and looking forward to seeing McAdams on our screens once again on June 21.
