“The Leftovers” has just finished airing season one, and HBO has renewed the series for a second season.
“We are thrilled to bring back THE LEFTOVERS for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,” said Michael Lombardo, HBO Programming president, in the announcement.
“It 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.” The show is based on Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel by the same name, focusing on a situation that appears to be The Rapture, or at least rapturesque.
“Set 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 ‘The Sudden Departure,’ the show’s description reads.
“Three 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.” “This a show about the human hunger for answers, yet the most profound answers never come to us and it reflects that.
Yes, that will frustrate people in the way that life frustrates people but hey, they’ll have to live with it,” Perrotta said to Independent.
According to Hollywood Life , Coon mused that by taking in one of Holy Wayne’s children, Nora was given a chance to start over with a brand-new family.
The actress also added in an interview with TV Line that while she knew that Nora wasn’t going to die, she “loves the fact that the audience had a more ambiguous experience” while watching the season finale because there’s a certain kind of power in scenes like that.
That being said, will fans be able to watch Nora blossom in her new life during Season Two? Check back for more “Leftovers” season 2 information as we get closer to the release date.
