at .  Updated at . Comments

HBO has reportedly signed a slew of new names for True Detective Season 2.

With Collin Farrell on board as a detective and Vince Vaughn as a career criminal hoping to go legit, Deadline writes that a bunch of other well-known names are also on board for the next edition of this award-winning drama.

According to the report, Abigail Spencer, Kelly Reilly, Michael Irby, and Leven Rambin will also play key roles on the series when True Detective returns in 2015, with the brief casting outlines as follows:

  • Irby would play Elvis, the partner of Rachel McAdams rumored character.
  • Spencer would portray the survivor of a sexual assault.
  • Rambin would play a woman with a checkered past.
  • And Reilly’s role is described by Deadline as “the self-possessed Morgan."

Last week, Taylor Kitsch confirmed in an interview that he'll also be playing a leading role on True Detective Season 2.

Season 2 will center on three police officers and a lifelong criminal, all of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

HBO is yet to comment on any of the casting rumors outside of Vaughn and Farrell, but sound off below on the possibilities of these others joining the dark fun.
