True Blood alumni James Frain (Franklin Mott), Riley Smith (Arlene’s beau Keith) and Ashley Hinshaw (Jason’s eventual wife Brigette) are returning to HBO with co-starring roles in True Detective season 2.

The second installment in the crime franchise revolves around three police officers, played by Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams, and a career criminal, played by Vince Vaughn, who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

Frain will play Jeff Hunt, a ruthless police lieutenant; Smith will play McAdams’ boyfriend, Steve Mercier, a boyish Sheriff’s deputy; and Hinshaw plays a troubled starlet.

True Detective is expected to assume True Blood‘s Sunday night spot in Summer 2015 on HBO.
