HBO drama The Leftovers kicks off its sophomore season tonight with an extended episode ("Axis Mundi") airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Jarden, Texas was renamed "Miracle" after it was discovered that no one had departed. The town has since become a magnet for tourists and people who are convinced it is special and can keep them safe. Among the local families is the Murphys: the father, John (Kevin Carroll), the mother, Erika (Regina King), and their twins, Evie (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Michael (Jovan Adepo). While trying to protect his town from frauds and charlatans, John gets an ominous warning from a man who claims to have psychic powers. Soon afterwards, Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) and Jill Garvey (Margaret Qualley) show up in Miracle. This newly formed "family" left Mapleton to start over, but Kevin cannot seem to escape his past. The Murphy family and Kevin subsequently experience a mysterious event that will that change their lives forever.

Watch a sneak peek below and the Season 2 opening credits set to Iris DeMent's "Let the Mystery Be."

  1. This is such a great show! Strong acting with a great script each week! Tragic, horrifying, and yet has precise and hysterical comic moments...completely fascinating gripping look at the human condition. Agree about new opening credits...Love Iris DeMent! First heard of her about 10 years ago with, Waste Land of the Free. Although my favorite has always been, Jesus May Forgive You, But I Don't.
