"The Leftovers" -- arguably HBO's most depressing but still addictive show -- introduced us to The Sudden Departure, when 2 percent of the world's population (aka 140 million people) just disappeared at once for unknown reasons. The first season was led by Justin Theroux in fictional Mapleton, New York, and HBO just shared the first tease for Season 2, which is taking us to the small town of Jarden, Texas.



The 55-second tease shows us a line of cars in bumper-to-bumper traffic under blazing desert skies, leading up to a sign for Jarden, Texas. Why is this place special? Well, as the sign notes, they had no Departures. As HBO noted with the video, "No country, no state, no city was spared, except for one small town in eastern Texas. Population: 9261. Departures: Zero."

According to TVLine, most of Season 1's cast members won't be back for Season 2, since the location moved to Texas, but they said star Justin Theroux will return, along with his onscreen Garvey family, played by Amy Brenneman, Margaret Qualley and Chris Zylka; plus Carrie Coon and Christopher Eccleston. TVLine added that new blood will include new series regular Regina King as a doctor who runs the local urgent care town. Kevin Carroll plays her husband, head of the town's volunteer fire department. They will be the Garveys' new neighbors. Jovan Adepo plays their teen son, who is actively involved in his church, and Darius McCrary will guest star as a local palm reader.



Season 2's 10 episodes premiere this fall.
