The McConaisance is over — on HBO, at least. You won't be seeing Matthew McConaughey's face among the cast of True Detective Season 2, even though he was the first season's main draw and racked up a boatload of awards nominations to prove it. Given that the crime drama is an anthology series, neither he nor co-star Woody Harrelson returned for another go 'round... and they left two pretty large pairs of cowboy boots to fill.

In fact, the hole the two movie stars left was so big, it took four big-name stars for HBO to fill it! So before you dive into the existential murk of another season of True Detective this Sunday night, take a moment to meet your new group of dysfunctional protagonists — and a few supporting players whose faces you'll undoubtedly recognize.
