    ^^ no idea, but I’m surprised they’re airing it so soon.

    Will be interesting to see if it’s a wise choice in terms of ‘it’s high quality so let’s give it to the audience sooner rather than later,’ or ‘it’s not that great, so we’ll put it out there for people to moan about then kind of fade away before the main TV season.’

    Main cast list character names:

    Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro (not Velcro as I first read it) 
    Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon (not Seymon – semen – haha semen)
    Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides
    Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh

    So, based on the main characters names, this is some sort of spoof right? Velcro, Semen, Wood-rough, and Bezza.

    Loved the first teaser. The cast is great and so interesting. Based on the teaser it looks like Farrell & Kitch have the baitiest roles, but it’s just the teaser. The new season is eligible for the upcoming Emmys, right?

    I don’t think it will be. I think the deadline for airing is the middle of May. Interesting choice by HBO.

    After the massive disappointment (to me) of Better Call Saul, I’m not going to get my hopes up too high for TD2. But the teaser does look intriguing.

    Excellent trailer, can’t wait!

    Nope, misses the deadline by 3 weeks.

    Not much to work with in this teaser, but it looks great and I LOVE the looks of the main characters.

    I wasn’t a huge fan of Season 1 – I thought it was incredibly overrated, but this trailer has me excited for Season 2.

    Soon!  It’s 17 months after the first season debuted.    That’s a long layoff that I’m guessing they don’t want to extend any more than they have to.

    This definitely looks like a completely different show from season 1. Not that that’s a bad thing, but just striking.

    Emmy winner Colin Farrell, mark my words. I think I like the overall aesthetic but I’m not 100% sold on the cast just yet. If only you could replace Taylor Kitshabbnajsbd with Miles Teller, Michael B.Jordan or other worthier “stud” I’d be happier because I’m not very fond of Taylor’s acting. I’ll wait to see though. Let’s hope Rachel McAdams kills it!

    That teaser trailer was beast. I agree that it does look like Kitsch and Farrell have the most baitiest roles. However, McAdams looks like she is going to do great work, as well. I’m still very skeptical on the casting of Vince Vaughn, but I’m looking forward to see what he does on the show.
