Though a little slow, I enjoyed watching the first season. I can expect nothing less from HBO. It's a great time to be a TV watcher...with or without cable television.
I would recommend you watch the first season in case you haven't. It's a little slow and depressing, but it grows on you
Here's a plot blurb:
Leftovers revolves around mysterious disappearances, world-wide, and specifically follows a group of people who are left behind in the suburban community of Mapleton. They must begin to rebuild their lives after the loss of more than 100 people.
HBO has announced that The Leftovers will return for its second season on Sunday, October 4th
Here is the new trailer for season 2.
