The Leftovers might not have delivered all the answers yet during its first season, but HBO has decided to give them more space to explore in renewing the show for a second season. Here’s how the Huffington Post reported the news of HBO greenlighting the show’s 2nd season.
There is now another reason to continue (or start) watching “The Leftovers” — HBO has renewed the series for a second season.
It remained a question — one among many that the mysterious series leaves us with — whether or not the Damon Lindelof show would get renewed for Season 2, especially now that the first season finale is fast approaching. With only three episodes left and pretty much every element of the plot still left unexplained though, it makes sense for HBO to bring the show back for a second season.
Viewers who complain about the show’s lack of direction haven’t read the source material by Tom Perrotta. The novel isn’t so much about what happened with the disappeared, but about the broken society left in their wake. The sooner that people realize that this Damon Lindelof show isn’t about unraveling the mystery, the better. The best part of the show continues to be The Guilty Remnant. The GR is the best advertisement for cigarette smoking since Joe Camel. Conveying emotions without communicating is a tough job, but the show thus far has done great at making them completely realized.
