If there was any doubt that season 2 of The Leftovers would have a very different vibe than last season, which faithfully mined Tom Perrotta’s dark 2011 novel, look no further than the new opening credits. Gone are the anguish-of-the-damned paintings and strings-heavy orchestral music.
The Leftovers season 2 premieres Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, and HBO has revealed a batch of new teasers to whet our appetites. Are you ready to witness a Miracle?
Just as the Garveys will make a fresh start in the upcoming second season of The Leftovers, the series’ opening credits are starting over as well.
The Leftovers ran into a challenge most book adaptations strive to work against — season 1 ended just as Tom Perrotta’s book of the same name concluded. But with no material left, executive producer Damon Lindelof didn’t see this as an obstacle. It was an exciting opportunity to expand the world the book and then the TV show established.
For EW’s Fall Preview mega-issue, our original plan was to run a short Q&A with Damon Lindelof. That didn’t work out so well. Lindelof gave such candid, thoughtful and detailed answers to our questions about The Leftovers season 2, his career, Game of Thrones, and even the existence of God, that even just printing one of his longer replies would have used up all the space we allocated for the show.
While interviewing Damon Lindelof for season 2 of his HBO drama The Leftovers as part of EW’s upcoming Fall Preview mega-issue, he repeatedly referenced another show: Game of Thrones. So we asked the Lost and Prometheus writer-producer who famously quit Twitter last year his opinion of Thrones’ most recent fifth season—which generated fan and media controversy amid some daring storytelling moves.

Looks like The Leftovers will be leaving the (not so) safe confines of Mapleton and traveling into the desert, if the first teaser for season 2 is any indication.
