When Does 'The Leftovers' Season 2 Start? Not Soon Enough, But This Will Help

Try using the arrow keys

It seems like it was just a few weeks ago we were first introduced to the fine citizens of Mapleton, a sleepy little town in upstate New York, which happens to be inhabited by a malevolent cult, a possibly-crazy chief of police, and a dude who really dislikes dogs. But we've already reached the end of 10-episode first season, and now we all have to endure the agony that is a nearly year-long wait until The Leftovers Season 2 starts. HBO hasn't yet announced a premiere date, or any other details about the second season. Those will be released slowly throughout the year, as the cast and crew's contracts are negotiated, scripts written, and guest stars confirmed. [UPDATE: Deadline reports that The Leftovers will return Oct. 4.]

But you don't have to spend the next ten months holding your breath (did ya see what I did there?). Bone up on some Leftovers lore while we all wait together...
