A few days ago the first synopsis for The Leftovers Season Two was revealed, and now thanks to EW, the very first full length trailer has arrived.
The first season of The Leftovers was a pleasant surprise, and thankfully things haven’t changed too drastically here (besides a new location). The trailer promises a bigger series with more dangerous issues than before, and an even bigger sense of menace and threat.
I am really hoping the new series can replicate the unique tone of the original series, and based on what I have seen in this trailer, it certainly appears to have done so.
The second season drops half of its cast, and relocates to Jarden, Texas, where there have been zero departures. I wonder what that means?
Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Christopher Eccleston, and Carrie Coon all return to the show.
The Leftover Season 2 debuts on HBO on October 4th at 9 p.m. EST.
After last season’s elaborate Memorial Day initiative by the Guilty Remnant plunged Mapleton into chaos, season two of THE LEFTOVERS finds many searching for a fresh start. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) has retired from his post as chief of police of Mapleton and is moving his new family to Texas. With him is Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), who’s discovered new purpose in caring for the baby she found on Kevin’s doorstep and welcomes leaving behind Mapleton and the incredible tragedy she suffered there. Equally eager to leave the town she grew up in and the friends she made there is Kevin’s daughter, Jill (Margaret Qualley).
Upon their arrival in Jarden, Texas, the newly formed Garvey family meet their neighbors, the Murphys: John (Kevin Carroll) and Erika (Regina King) and their teenage twins, Evie (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Michael (Jovan Adepo). Attracted to this special town and hoping for miracles for his whole family, Matt Jamison (Christopher Eccleston) has moved with his wife, Mary (Janel Moloney), who still suffers from consequences of the terrible car accident on October 14.
Meanwhile, Kevin’s ex-wife, Laurie Garvey (Amy Brenneman), has left the Guilty Remnant and reunited with her son, Tom (Chris Zylka), who may have finally discovered a cause to help replace the pain in his heart. And while Meg (Liv Tyler) remains in the Guilty Remnant, it may not be the same cult she originally joined.
