We were overjoyed to find out that HBO would be premiering the second, high-anticipated series of True Detective in June – much earlier than I and many others thought it would. But the end of June it is, which led to the next important question: when would it air in the UK? Thankfully, Sky has a) a grasp on what UK fans of US shows want and need when it comes to transmission dates, and b) an excellent relationship with HBO, True Detective’s US broadcaster. So, bearing all that in mind, it’s great to hear that UK viewers will get the chance to see it 24 hours after its US transmission date. Which basically means that series two will kick off in the UK on Monday 22nd June on Sky Atlantic. Hurrah!
