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 »

The premise behind "Dixieland" -- in which a pair of star-crossed lovers turn to crime as a means to escape their small Mississippi town lives -- reads like Romantic Drama 101. But in the hands of director Hank Bedford, the film escapes the trappings of cliché and familiarity. Through a focus on character and a reliance on realism, "Dixieland" emerges as an intimate and evocative slice-of-life. Cast members Chris Zylka ("The Leftovers") and R.J. Mitte ("Breaking Bad") joined Bedford and Indiewire's Nigel Smith at the Apple Store in Soho, Manhattan for one of Apple and Indiewire's Tribeca Talks to discuss the film and the importance of maintaining its naturalistic tone.

Tribeca Review: 'Dixieland,' With Riley Keough and Faith Hill, Shows Gritty Innards of America's Heartland

27 April 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s a story we’ve heard before: Star-crossed lovers who dream of something more get suffocated by the only lives they’ve ever known. With "Dixieland," first-time director Hank Bedford has refurbished this archetype, both for better and for worse. Anchored by honest performances from Chris Zylka, Riley Keough, Faith Hill, Steve Earle, and Rj Mitte, the film intermittently hits and misses as it tries on an experimental docu-fiction form for size. What emerges is a heartfelt, sensory experience of the deep South that comes partly undone by some bold stylistic choices. Kermit (Zylka) is released from jail after serving a sentence for the attempted murder of his mother's sleazy suitor. Despite Kermit's rough-looking exterior, he's endearingly juvenile: When his mother (Hill) picks him up, Kermit is giddy with newfound freedom, his limbs jittering with a sense of possibility. Though he claims serving time made him a "man," it's »

The Leftovers Season 2 To Mess With Texas And Drop Cast Members

14 April 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first season of HBO’s The Leftovers was brutal, bleak, baffling and very occasionally breathtaking in its exploration of a town in grief, but when it returns to the network this summer, viewers will be in for a drastically different show, according to TVLine.

In its second season, The Leftovers will shift its setting from Mapleton, New York, to a new location in the Lone Star state. Though the name of the town is not yet known, this setting change will kick off a creative rejiggering of sorts for the series on the heels of it burning through all the source material (exec-producer Tom Perotta’s 2011 novel of the same name) in its first season.

In addition to moving to Texas, The Leftovers will shed some of its supporting cast members for the second season. As previously reported, season 1 regulars like Michael GastonAnnie Q., Max and Charlie Carver, »
