HBO’s critically acclaimed drama “The Leftovers” will be shooting scenes for its upcoming second season in Austin.
Plot details surrounding the new season have not been released, so it’s unclear why the show is moving from upstate New York to Central Texas. It looks like most of the primary cast is returning, including Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Carrie Coon and Christopher Eccleston, according to Austin Culture Map.
“Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof is still tied to the show along with Tom Perrotta, and the new season will be delving into some new territory, since the book the film was based on has no sequels or subsequent materials.
“The Leftovers” is about an event known as “The Sudden Departure,” when about 2 percent of the world’s population vanished all at once without a trace of where they went to. The show follows a small town in New York three years after that event. Members of the community cope with loss, survivor’s guilt and societal clashes as cults surrounding the event begin to form.
The first season of the “The Leftovers” has a Metacritic score of 65, with many critics complementing the show’s interesting characters and great acting, as well as compelling plotlines.
