After months of endless anticipation, the first trailer for season 2 of True Detective is finally here — and it’s everything we dreamed it would be and more.

Set to some downright gorgeous music (there’s no official word on this, but maybe it will be season 2’s theme song and replace “Far From Any Road”?!), the video shows a very serious Colin Farrell, ridiculously badass Rachel McAdams (yes!), sinister Vince Vaughn, and loose cannon Taylor Kitsch. It looks absolutely incredible, and we can’t wait to see how the cast comes together when the season starts June 21. Check it out for yourself below!

Along with the teaser, HBO has also released the first official description for the new season, which brings a whole new level to the trailer and only adds to our desperate need for the premiere to come sooner.

And, as if that weren’t enough to have us absolutely fangirling out, HBO has also released the first official photos of the show’s stars — each looking equally awesome and full of complex emotions and basically why isn’t it summer yet?!

Check out the portraits below, and tune in to the premiere of True Detective on June 21 on HBO (. . . as if we needed to remind you).
