HBO finally confirmed Rachel joining the “True Detective” season two cast alongside Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, Colin Farrell, & Vince Vaughn yesterday. Be sure to check out our previous post in case you missed it. It’s such an anticipated project after the critical and commercial success of the first season so there have been many reports about the second season. We already made a casting update news round-up a few days ago but now that Rachel is confirmed we also wanted to round up reports with – possible – details about season 2. Keep in mind that the reports might contain spoilers about the plot.
HBO’s official logline for the second season is: Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. The three police officers will be played by Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, and Rachel as Ani Bezzerides. Vince Vaughn will play the criminal Frank Semyon. Deadline reported back in August that season 2 “will kick off with a murder, and it might involve corruption in the California transportation system, possibly linked to a proposed high-speed train”. They also reported that the second season is expected to have 4 leads, three of them said to be cops/detectives/government workers and one the villain.
The news we’ve all been waiting for: HBO officially confirmed that Rachel has joined the cast of “True Detective” season 2. HBO also confirms the reports that Taylor Kitsch and Kelly Reilly have joined the cast.

The news of Rachel being “frontrunner” for the female lead in “True Detective” was first reported back in September. The most recent report came from Variety who reported Rachel was close to locking down a lead role. If you follow our twitter account you have noticed we have reported an re-tweeted the latest rumors on the casting and series these last few weeks.
HBO has only confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn casting so far, because it’s such an anticipated project many more rumors have been circling around. We will try to round them up in this post. We also recommend heading over to Indiewire who compiled their own round-up post.
Taylor Kitsch, who will reportedly play one of the detectives, confirmed to AdWeek himself that he is part of the second season of the series. HBO still hasn’t confirm his casting. The Wrap reported a few weeks ago that Michael Irby, Kelly Reilly, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin joined the cast in supporting and recurring roles. Irby will play Elvis Ilinca, Rachel’s character’s partner at the police department. Deadline reported the first table read was held on October 31, and Rachel was spotted in LA the same day.
Deadline has reported several recurring cast additions this last week. They are reporting that Lolita Davidovich, James Frain, Adria Arjona, Michael Hyatt, Yara Martinez, Christian Campbell, and Riley Smith joined the casting in recurring roles.
