The second season of HBO’s drama series The Leftovers will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Monday October 5th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers is set just after the apocalypse. When the Rapture happened, but not quite like it’s supposed to. The series tells the story of the people who didn’t make the cut and a world that will never be the same. The drama series stars Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Janel Moloney.
The show’s second season relocates the action to a small town in Eastern Texas, which inexplicably was left untouched by the apocalypse that wiped out 2% of the earth’s population. This is the setting for a tale of two families: the Garveys, whose lives were forever changed by The Departure, and have since moved to this special place, and the Murphys, a local family who seems to have been spared from an event that shook the rest of the world.
