Season 1 of HBO’s “The Leftovers” was focused on being left behind, and the just-released Season 2 trailer reveals the next installment will be about starting over.
The new trailer offers a first glimpse at what happens to Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) and his family when they make the move to Miracle, Texas in hopes of a fresh start in a place untouched by the Departure. Kevin and his daughter Jill (Margaret Qualley) are also joined by Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) who has found a new purpose in life caring for the baby she found on the Garvey doorstep.
The Murphy family makes their first official appearance in the trailer as well. The brood, which consists of John (Kevin Carroll), Erika (Regina King) and their teenage twins Evie (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Michael (Jovan Adepo), instantly befriend The Garveys and will undoubtably be a pivotal part of Season 2.
Although things seem happy at first, it soon becomes clear that though Texas town may have not have been touched by the Departure, it is far from perfect. Things seem to take a very dark turn when Evie Murphy vanishes and chaos ensues.
“What you’re looking for is to feel safe,” John Murphy says. “You’re no safer here than anywhere else. There are no miracles in Miracle.”
“The Leftovers” premieres Sunday, Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO
