Tv Season Info

Season 2 opens in Jarden, Texas, aka Miracle, a town known the world over for not losing a single person to the "Sudden Departure," and one where Kevin, Jill, Nora and baby Lily hope to start anew with a clean slate. Preceded by Matt, who's found a new preaching gig, and his wife, Mary, they're welcomed by their new neighbors and lifelong residents Erika and John Murphy. The latter, however, is leery of charlatans and carpetbaggers who seek to profit from Miracle's reputation, but that stature is called into question after three young girls vanish without a trace. Back on the East Coast, Tom goes undercover to lure skeptics from the Guilty Remnant, while Laurie works on a tell-all book to expose the chain-smoking cult's silent campaign of intimidation. Also starring Ann Dowd, Liv Tyler, Jovan Adepo, Steven Williams and Jasmin Savoy Brown.

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (20)

The Leftovers is a dark and sombre show but ultimately rewarding with its intricate character work and rich and provocative writing.

But the thing is, most of those dizzy moments - including the first episode's epic opening, which seems tethered to nothing else - are as entertaining as they are mystifying.

Top Critic

The new season makes a start so fresh, it's almost a rebooting: new location, new characters, an occasional smile. The show remains uniquely interested in coping-or not-with tragedy, but flashes of something that looks like hope have entered the scene.

Top Critic

From the very first episode of season two, there's renewed confidence in The Leftovers.

Sep 29, 2015 | Full Review…

There's such authoritativeness in the storytelling here that even settings and characters that have just been introduced feel fully realized, recognizable, and worthy of our investment.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

If the show continues to delve into these characters, get ready for an emotional roller coaster.
