The Leftovers second season teaser was released a few days ago hinting at a kind of sideways reboot of season 1. While several of the actors from the first season will be back, this season of The Leftovers will change locations and shift the focus of the story.
Here is the teaser for season 2 of The Leftovers:
There is also a brief synopsis for season 2 as well, which further hints at the change of scenery:
“More than three years ago, 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanished. 140 million people, gone in an instant. No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero. Pack your bags. Season 2 of The Leftovers premieres this fall.”
I was a fan of The Leftovers, but perhaps due more to the fact that every episode left a dozen open-ended questions. The mystery grew to a maddening fever pitch in every hour, but remained steadily intriguing thanks to solid performances from Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, and the rest of the cast. Theroux and Brenneman will return for season 2, as will Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, and Christopher Eccleston.
Season 2 of The Leftovers will premiere this fall on HBO.
