True Detective HBO starts out in 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are made possible to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in modern day through separate interrogations, two of the former detectives narrate the storyplot with their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving from a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In mastering about each other and their killer, it might be clear that darkness lives on both sides with the law.

The series also stars Michelle Monaghan (‘Mission: Impossible III’) as Maggie, Hart’s wife; Kevin Dunn (‘Veep’) as Major Quesada, the supervising officer in 1995; and Tory Kittles (‘Sons of Anarchy’) and Michael Potts (‘The Wire’) as Dets. Papania and Gilbough, the investigators now probing Hart and Cohle for answers.
