Season 2 of The Leftovers, which premieres on HBO this Sunday, has drastically changed things up from Sthe grief-heavy Season 1. After the first season reached the ending of Perrotta’s book (though Perrotta remains an executive producer), Lindelof’s series is now free to further explore other, larger areas of the story. The first three episodes of the new season, which were provided in advance to press, do exactly that.
Following its initial revelatory teaser, The Leftovers finally serves up a full course for Season 2. The Garvey family has moved on in the first spot of the second run from Damon Lindelof’s post-rapture drama, but a move to the departure-free Miracle, Texas has brought anything but peace to the family, judging by the explosive footage.
Following its moderate first season reception, The Leftovers finally gave up its HBO vanishing act and gave us a first Season 2 teaser, with a haunting new mystery. Now, the network has officially set the Garvey family’s off-book return for October 2015, with a new synopsis that reveals our Season 2 story and cast.
HBO's upcoming Damon Lindelof-helmed pilot 'The Leftovers' has wasted little time in rapturing additional cast members, following last week's notable acquisition of Liv Tyler. The latest to join the cast are 'Private Practice' vet Amy Brenneman and 'Fringe' star Emily Meade, but what new roles will they take, and how long before we can expect to see the pilot itself?
