The Leftovers has made a strong impression in its first season, prompting HBO to issue a renewal even before the season was over. â€œWe are thrilled to bring back THE LEFTOVERS for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,â€ said Michael Lombardo, HBO Programming president, in the announcement. â€œIt has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling. We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper into the lives of those who remain.â€ However, there is no indication yet as to when season 2 will premiere. CarterMatt has an idea about a time frame, though. â€œThe next season will once again be ten episodes, and given the lengthy production window, really cannot start airing at any point before next summer,â€ it said. â€œPersonally, we feel like you could be seeing the show paired next year with True Detective, which needs the time to craft its own story for next year. It wonâ€™t have time to be ready for January.â€ The easiest guess is sometime around when this season premiered, but next year. Season 1 started on June 29. The blog also notes that hopefully there will be at least a little bit of hope entering the picture next season, since this one was so dark. Oddly enough, none of the actors or producers have given insight into where the story is headed as of Sunday night. The show is based on Tom Perrottaâ€™s bestselling novel by the same name, focusing on a situation that appears to be The Rapture. â€œSet in a small New York suburb, the intimate family drama focuses on the residents of the fictional town of Mapleton, whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed â€˜The Sudden Departure,â€™ the showâ€™s description reads. â€œThree years after the fateful day when 140 million people disappeared without a trace, the series looks at the ways ordinary people react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, examining how their untold grief and the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness or cult-like fanaticism.â€
