Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn to Star in True Detective Season 2!

by at .

It's an exciting day for fans or eerie crime drama and boozy, philosophical bromances.

After months of rumors we've finally learned that the second season of HBO's acclaimed cop anthology True Detective will star Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn in two of the lead roles.

If it feels as though time is a flat circle and you've heard all this before, well you may have:

Farrell was cast way back in June, but kept the role under his hat until yesterday. Naturally, rumors abounded on the web, regardless.

Similarly, we reported in August Vaughn would star in season 2, but motor-mouth Vince had been uncharacteristically tight-lipped prior to confirming the news today.

According to the the network's description of the new season, Farrell and Vaughn won't be partnered up on an investigation a la McConaughey and Harrelson, but will instead play a veteran cop and a career criminal, respectively.

Also, unlike the first season, the second iteration of TD will reportedly be more of an ensemble drama will one of the lead investigator roles being played by a woman.

Sadly, it looks as though the second season will not include any of the hilarious casting combos in the gallery below, nor any Alexandra Daddario nude scenes.

Worse, the series is tentatively scheduled for summer of 2015. Fortunately, you can watch True Detective online at TV Fanatic to hold you over until then.

So grab a sixer of Lone Stars and your notebook full of Yellow King theories, because this is one series that definitely stands up to multiple viewings.
