But what we can say is that all of the source material for the show is gone. So what are the producers to do for a second season? It seems The Leftovers season 2 will change settings from its quaint upstate New York town to a yet-to-be announced location. Plus, while the main cast will return, most of the supporting cast will not. Read more about The Leftovers season 2 below. Read More »
