The Leftovers Season 2

The Leftovers Season 2 Premiere Date, Storyline Revealed

Save the date: HBO’s The Leftovers will return with its second season on Sunday, Oct. 4.

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. 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.

    I feel like season two has a lot of potential. I’m also very excited that Liv Tyler is confirmed to be returning. I felt that all of the characters that weren’t returning made sense besides her absence.

  2. Resurrection was better.

    I loved Friday night lights as much as anybody, but I just cant get over the fact that everyone essential to the plot just up and moved to Texas. I could maybe buy Kevin and Nora but there is know logical reason for Christopher Eccleston to move to the exact same place as well unless hes stalking them. This was a really weird decision by the producers, and I fear it will really put off the few viewers it had . I happened to have liked the first season, and I’m not sure that I can wrap my head around this major change in setting. Maybe it will turn out great but I cant imagine it at the moment.

      Ecceleston’s character has an easy excuse to head to Texas, his sister is going there. I do agree leaving Mapleton is gonna be weird. It was one of the biggest characters on the show, but watching the teaser explains why they’re going there.

      The teaser has already hinted as to why so many people are rushing to Jaden, in that it is the only place with zero departures. It would make perfect sense for Christopher Eccleston’s character to move there as well because he is believer in miracles and is somewhat of a skeptic in regards to matters of the departure.

    Where are Emily Meade and the Carver twins going to be? They were great.

    I just hope season two brings us more of Justin T. jogging along with his junk bouncing about for all of us healthy minded onlookers to fantasize about… Ohhhh what a guilty pleasure…
