Three years after millions of people—some 2% of the world's population—vanished into thin air, residents of Mapleton, NY weigh the pros and cons of a "Heroes Day" tribute to the local "Departed". Attempting to maintain a sense of normalcy in his strained community, police chief Kevin Garvey faces additional challenges at home with his daughter, Jill, who's lost in a cloud of apathy with her friend Aimee, and son, Tom, who has gravitated to a cult led by the charismatic Holy Wayne. Also of concern is a silent, white-clad group of chain-smoking men and women called the Guilty Remnant, who team up in pairs to stake out people and places around town. As tension in Mapleton escalates, the lives of Laurie, an unexpected member of the Guilty Remnant, and Meg, a recently engaged young woman, converge.

TV series "The Leftovers" is set around a group of people living in suburbs of Mapleton. Three years ago 2% of Earth population suddenly disappeared without a trace. About 100 people vanished from Mapleton. Among them were children, adults, senior citizens of all nationalities and occupations. Over the time passed, life still hasn’t got back to normal. Religious fanatics and scientists keep having fierce disputes about where and how all these people disappeared. The plot follows a local police chef Kevin Garvey. He inherited his position from his father who had been taken to a mental health clinic after "October the 14th". Garvey is trying to maintain order in the town, consumed with anger and sorrow but he also has to deal with his own problems: his son has gone to the West and has been out of touch all this time, his teenage daughter is going out of control and his wife left the family for a mysterious organization named "the Guilty Remnant".

The Leftovers has made a strong impression in its first season, prompting HBO to issue a renewal even before the season was over. “We are thrilled to bring back THE LEFTOVERS for a second season with the exceptional talents of Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta,” said Michael Lombardo, HBO Programming president, in the announcement. “It has been truly exciting to see the overwhelming response to their provocative and original storytelling. We look forward to continuing the journey as the show delves deeper into the lives of those who remain.” However, there is no indication yet as to when season 2 will premiere. CarterMatt has an idea about a time frame, though. “The next season will once again be ten episodes, and given the lengthy production window, really cannot start airing at any point before next summer,” it said. “Personally, we feel like you could be seeing the show paired next year with True Detective, which needs the time to craft its own story for next year. It won’t have time to be ready for January.” The easiest guess is sometime around when this season premiered, but next year. Season 1 started on June 29. The blog also notes that hopefully there will be at least a little bit of hope entering the picture next season, since this one was so dark. Oddly enough, none of the actors or producers have given insight into where the story is headed as of Sunday night. The show is based on Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel by the same name, focusing on a situation that appears to be The Rapture. “Set in a small New York suburb, the intimate family drama focuses on the residents of the fictional town of Mapleton, whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed ‘The Sudden Departure,’ the show’s description reads. “Three years after the fateful day when 140 million people disappeared without a trace, the series looks at the ways ordinary people react to inexplicable events that can unite or divide families and communities, examining how their untold grief and the strain of an unprecedented calamity can turn faith into cynicism, paranoia, madness or cult-like fanaticism.”
