First full-length trailer for The Leftovers season 2 shows that change is coming

5 August 2015 2:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first full-length trailer for the second season of HBO’s The Leftovers has debuted online, ahead of the show’s return on October 4, 2015. Watch it down below…

As the trailer shows, season 2 will be different in a lot of ways from the first season. On top of the show’s setting changing from Mapleton, New York to Jarden, Texas, many new actors are being added to the cast, while others from season 1 are not returning.

The Leftovers is created by Damon Lindeloff and Tom Perrotta, the latter of the two having penned the book from which the show is adapted. Regular cast members Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Carrie Coon, Liv Tyler and Christopher Eccleston will be joined by newcomers Kevin Carroll (Margaret), Regina King (Enemy of the State), Jovan Adepo (Blood Relatives) and Darius McCrary (Family Matters).

'The Leftovers' Season 2 Trailer Teases Second Disappearance

5 August 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, HBO announced a new cast for Season 2 of The Leftovers, with the setting shifting from Mapleton, New York to a small town Texas known as Miracle. Just one month after the first trailer debuted, which showed rapture survivors from allover the country flocking to this small town, the cable network has released a second trailer that gives us more insight into this miraculous town, while introducing us to a few of its residents, primarily, the Parker family, played by Kevin Carroll, Regina King, Jovan Adepo and Darius McCrary

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. Season 1 stars Carrie Coon, Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley and Christopher Eccleston are returning for The Leftovers Season 2, along with new cast members Kevin Carroll, »

'The Leftovers' Season 2 Trailer Wants You to Believe in Miracles

5 August 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Where do you go if you're looking for miracles? A town named Miracle, of course.

Entertainment Weekly has the first full trailer for season 2 of HBO's "The Leftovers," and at first, it seems that things are looking up for Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), and their family. They decide to leave Mapleton for Miracle, Texas - which experienced zero Sudden Departures.

"What are you looking for?" asks new neighbor John Murphy (Kevin Carroll).

"A fresh start," Kevin answers.

Watch the trailer.

But the fresh start begins to sour when the daughter of John and wife Erika (Regina King) goes missing. Was there foul play? Did she run away? Or could this be another departure?

Judging from the trailer, season 2 seems to have a different tone than the often-depressing first season. There is still conflict and tension, but also moments of light and even some smiles!

As we learned from TCA last week, »

The Leftovers Season 2 Teaser Reveals A Key Plot Point

12 June 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When The Leftovers returns to HBO this fall, it will be a drastically different show than the one that aired last summer. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta used up all the source material in the series’ freshman run, and so the pair have been forced to give the show a soft reboot, dropping some major characters and moving the setting out of Mapleton, New York, all the way down to Jarden, Texas.

The new teaser for the series, perhaps appropriately given how different the sophomore season is expected to be, doesn’t feature any familiar faces but instead shows a long line of cars stretching across the desert, all lined up in hopes of migrating to Jarden. Soon, you realize why.

Now, Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Ann Dowd and Liv Tyler are all back for more post-apocalyptic misery and mystery, but season 1 regulars like Michael Gaston, »

First Trailer for 'The Leftovers' Season Two Moves to Texas, Departures... Zero

12 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I stopped watching HBO's "The Leftovers", I just couldn't maintain any level of interest, but I guess the second season might be worth giving a shot, especially since they seem to essentially be rebooting the series. Today the first trailer for the second season arrived, but first here's the logline: 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. Wait, whatc No departures, but didn't a bunch of people from the fictional New York city of Mapleton dep--- Ahhhh, eastern Texas... Yes, the show is moving locations and, in some ways, starting anew. I say "in some ways" because Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka and Carrie Coon are all staying on and the presumption is they will just be packing »

The Leftovers Season 2 Trailer Teases Big Changes Ahead

12 June 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released the first trailer for the second season of The Leftovers, and it’s very different. Inspired by the season-to-season structure of The Wire, showrunner Damon Lindelof has opted to mix things up this year by dropping half the cast and moving locations from New York State to Texas. So how does the shift come into play in the story? Well as we can see from this trailer, there’s a town in Texas that had zero departures. Lindelof described to us his feelings on the change thusly: "I do feel like the catalyst for coming back was 'let’s try something bold!' And if it doesn’t work, well, it will be a spectacular failure as opposed to a humdrum one." I was fascinated by the show’s first season. It’s incredibly different than Lost or anything else on HBO for that matter, but it's »

So that’s the reason they’re messing with Texas.

HBO has released the first footage from The Leftovers‘ upcoming second season, and it reveals why Kevin and Co. ended up hauling ass to a small town in eastern Texas: It’s the only community on the planet that did not lose a single person to The Sudden Departure. And by the looks of the teaser trailer above, that little fact has made Jarden, TX one very popular destination.

'The Leftovers' Season 2's First Teaser Has Us Intrigued

12 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"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."

Damon Lindelof Explains How 'The Wire' Season 2 Inspired 'The Leftovers' Second Season Shakeup

12 May 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The game is being changed for the second season of HBO's "The Leftovers." The show is getting a shakeup for the next go round, dumping some cast members, and relocating the setting from upstate New York to Texas. Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Christopher Eccleston, and Carrie Coon are returning, but what isn't clear is what kind of story will be told. While executive producer Damon Lindelof doesn't spill those details, he does share an interesting parallel to one of the great shows television has ever produced. "Although some people think the second season for 'The Wire' is its least successful, I was just completely and totally captivated by the audacity and boldness of just shifting the storytelling down to the docks, and taking the characters who I had become deeply enamored of and sidelining them in favor of entirely new characters," Lindelof told Collider.

Film Review: ‘Dixieland’

8 May 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A scintillating lead performance, a good deal of heart and a fragrant sense of place just about compensate for some slack storytelling and a forcibly elegiac tone in Hank Bedford’s Mississippi-set potboiler, “Dixieland,” which uses a standard-issue crime-thriller framework as a crutch for a far more interesting love story. Offering a fine showcase for Chris Zylka as a young ex-con who falls for the stripper next door, the pic may well attract curiosity thanks to supporting roles from country stars Steve Earle and a nearly unrecognizable Faith Hill, but VOD seems its most likely final destination.

Setting his saga in Pearl, Miss., Bedford intersperses real-life interviews with local hardcases — former drug dealers, strippers, game hunters — alongside his own fictional tale, a double-edged tactic that fleshes out the setting while also at times calling attention to the comparatively cliched story these vignettes interrupt. After some interviews and a few disorienting flashbacks/flash-forwards, »

Tribeca Review: ‘Dixieland’ Starring Riley Keough, Faith Hill & Chris Zylka

29 April 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The hopes and restless dreams of white trailer trash, and the unfortunate and cyclical circumstances of economic and spiritual poverty in the Dirty Deep South, are explored with moody, but uneven results in “Dixieland,” the directorial debut of Hank Bedford, a film about star-crossed lovers, fate, and bad choices. Chris Zylka stars as Kermit, a restless, reckless 20-something trying to find his way in the world. He’s just been released from a stint in prison for violence. It should be a glorious day, but the specter of a contemptible guard predicting he’ll be back sooner rather than later taints Kermit’s first moment of freedom. It doesn’t help that Kermit knows what awaits him on the outside: a trailer home, limited opportunities, a loving, but disappointed mother (country star Faith Hill letting her hair down and taking her make-up off for maybe the first time in her »
