Watch the Intense New Trailer for True Detective

Originally posted 05/14/2015 09:00PM

Internet, we've got a case to crack: What is going to happen in True Detective's second season?

A new trailer for the HBO drama dropped Thursday, but it doesn't make deciphering the anthology's heavily-guarded plot any easier.

The new teaser gives us a little more information than the first: We hear bits and pieces of dialogue, and Rachel McAdams shows us she's not to be messed with as her character, Officer Ani Bezzerides.

"This girl's gone missing," she growls. "Nobody cares. The Interior's poisoned and suddenly worth billions. Nobody cares?"

Rachel McAdams on True Detective Role: 'I Love That She's Not the Girlfriend or the Wife'

When the new season of True Detective kicks off June 21, Rachel McAdams will be playing one of the leads. But don't expect her character to have much in common with the types she plays in movies – or, for that matter, with female characters in the first season of the show.

"I love that she's not the girlfriend or the wife," McAdams, 36, says in the June issue of Marie Claire about her character, a Ventura, California, police officer named Ani Bezzerides. "She doesn't really care what everyone thinks; she feels no responsibility for other people's feelings. She's not trying to be charming, which isn't always the case with a leading lady."

Mad Men is ending, and while the show's opening credits are inseparable from RJD2's haunting theme, there was a time when that beat was known only as "A Beautiful Mine," by RJD2 and rapper Aceyalone.

Matthew Weiner originally wanted a Beck song to play as the show's opening theme, but the singer turned down every offer from the show's producers. Weiner was driving and listening to NPR one day when he heard "A Beautiful Mine" played as segue music between two stories and was immediately struck by it, though the version that ultimately was used was so different from the original that RJD2 didn't recognize it when he first heard it. He's probably okay with it now, though.

5 Things to Know About True Detective Director Cary Fukunaga

"This is awesome, and I'm at a loss for words," True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga said while accepting the Emmy award for outstanding directing Monday night.

He was talking about his win, but he might have unintentionally been speaking for the thousands of viewers and fans of the show who never knew that Fukunaga was, well, so good-looking. Since the world was introduced to the man behind True Detective, the Internet has been positively awash with paeans to Fukunaga – including the jaw-dropping admission that he got his start working on the music video for Destiny Child's "Survivor," giving the night a much-needed dose of Beyoncé.

Here are five things you probably didn't know about everyone's new favorite half-Swedish, half-Japanese director with man-braids.
