VideosThe Leftovers Season 2 Teaser Trailer Reveals Twist Behind New Setting
In making the announcement, the cabler also released an extremely detailed (read: spoilery) Season 2 synopsis. Scroll down and read at your own risk.
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. »
"The Leftovers" -- arguably HBO's most depressing but still addictive show -- introduced us to The Sudden Departure, when 2 percent of the world's population (aka 140 million people) just disappeared at once for unknown reasons. The first season was led by Justin Theroux in fictional Mapleton, New York, and HBO just shared the first tease for Season 2, which is taking us to the small town of Jarden, Texas.
The 55-second tease shows us a line of cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic under blazing desert skies, leading up to a sign for Jarden, Texas. Why is this place special? Well, as the sign notes, they had no Departures. As HBO noted with the video, "No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero."
