The new opening credits for season two of The Leftovers have a lighter feel, while still paying tribute to the departed.
The new opening titles for the TV series feature a wide arrange of photos with one or more of the subjects missing, representing those that were taken during “the Departure,” the massive and unexplained event that resulted in 2% of the world’s population disappearing into thin air. The song that plays along with the photos is by Iris DeMent, titled “Let The Mystery Be,” and gives the new credits a bit of a lighter feel than last year’s Renaissance-esque introduction.
Take a look at the new credits for yourself below:
The second season of the show focuses on Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) and his family finding a new place to start over, following the horrific events that the Guilty Remnant caused last summer. The clan will all move to Miracle, Texas, the one small town in the country that experienced 0 departures in the event that forever changed the world more than three years ago.
Returning for regular roles in the second season are: Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Janel Moloney.
The Leftovers returns to HBO on Sunday, October 4th at 9pm.
