HBO recently released new posters for acclaimed series "True Detective"'s Season 2 -- and they're pretty depressing. None of the cast appears. Rather, each poster features the line "We Get What We Deserve," set atop lonely, dark images of the Los Angeles freeways.

Cinemagraphic versions of two of the posters appear on the show's Twitter feed, showing glowing embers of a fire under an overpass and tiny cars roving like ants through the tangled serpent that is the L.A. highway system. The plotline of the film will reportedly revolve around a crime scene that takes place on the freeways.
