Episodes

Season 1 (2014)

In 2012, two former homicide investigators with the Louisiana State Police's Criminal Investigations Division, Rustin "Rust" Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin "Marty" Hart (Harrelson), are summoned for questioning by detectives Maynard Gilbough (Potts) and Thomas Papania (Kittles), about the Dora Lange murder investigation of 1995; they have not seen nor spoken to each other since an altercation concerning Martin's wife Maggie Hart (Monaghan) over a decade prior. With many of the old files destroyed in Hurricane Rita, the two men are asked to recount the history of their working relationship, personal lives, and the Dora Lange murder investigation, as well as a series of other related individual cases as new evidence suggests that the perpetrator remains at large.

Season 2 (2015)

California Highway Patrol officer and war veteran Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) discovers the dead body of a local businessman who was involved in a major land deal. Given the ambiguous jurisdictional nature of the crime scene, two other officers, Vinci Police Department Detective Raymond "Ray" Velcoro (Colin Farrell) and Ventura County Sheriff's Office CID Antigone "Ani" Bezzerides (Rachel McAdams), are assigned to help Woodrugh investigate the murder. The crime soon involves Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn), a career criminal who was involved in the land deal and whose life savings were stolen when the murder took place. Semyon has Detective Velcoro on his payroll, due to him helping the volatile detective locate and execute the man who raped his wife years earlier. The three detectives, plus Semyon, quickly realize a larger conspiracy at play involving the victim's past as a police officer, the corrupt city of Vinci, and the power struggle going on between the mayor's son, the Russian mafia, and the Vinci Police Department, who seek to silence the three detectives and their erstwhile mobster ally.
