HBO Says More Leftovers Please

The show has been renewed for a second season

HBO has ordered a second season of The Leftovers, an eerie drama about life after 2% of the world’s population mysteriously disappears.

The show, which brought in about 1.58 million viewers last Sunday, is based on the Tom Perrotta novel with the same name and created by Lost show-runner Damon Lindelof.

“It has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper in the lives of those who remain.”
