After season two of The Leftovers, it feels like season one hasn’t totally gotten its due. Admittedly, the HBO drama got off to a rough start, but midway through chapter one, the adaptation of Tom Perrotta‘s book began to soar. By the time “Guest” aired, directed by Carl Franklin (One False Move), The Leftovers began delving deeper into its world and characters — and season two continued to do the same. The main mystery became less of a burning question and the drama grew richer.

Showrunner and writer Damon Lindelof remains immensely proud of season one, but there were lessons learned that him and his collaborators kept in mind during season two. Below, read our conversation with Lindelof. (Spoilers for Season 2 of The Leftovers ahead.)

Heroes Day meeting

The first season of The Leftovers ended the same way Tom Perrotta‘s book did, with a powerful, potentially hopeful image we won’t spoil here. 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 »

Damon Lindelof

Since Damon Lindelof left Twitter, he’s noticeably less a part of the public dialogue about entertainment. Which was the point after the venom he received for contributions to Prometheus and Star Trek Into Darkness. Part of his absence, too, is that he’s working on a brand new show for HBO called The Leftovers. Now he’s ready to share some details about it.

Based on a novel by Tom Perrotta, the show takes place in a New York town three years after 140 million people worldwide mysteriously disappeared. Was the disappearance based in science? Was it religion? How will it change how people live their lives? Lindelof talks about all that and more below, as he describes the show saying “if Lost and Friday Night Lights had a baby and then that baby was severely neglected, that would be The Leftovers.” Read More »
