If HBO's latest trailer for its upcoming series "True Detective" is any indication, the drama is going to be a dark look at what crime does to those dedicated in the fight against it.

While the first trailer introduced stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as present-day Louisiana detectives brought back in to help with a serial-killer case the worked on in 1995, this new one showcases the struggle the detectives are still enduring after having 17 years of their life consumed by such a twisted case.

It's works as a warning: This won't be pretty.

Watch the new trailer above.

"True Detective" premieres Sunday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
