HBO’s “The Leftovers” filming in Austin

leftovers-768The second season of HBO’s often-intriguing, often-exceptionally depressing series  “The Leftovers” has moved its production from New York to Austin.

The second season will take place in Texas rather than upstate New York. Returning cast members include Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Chris Zylka, Christopher Eccleston and Carrie Coon.

The show’s first season was based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel of the same name; the second season is slated to feature original material.

Though there is no word as to whether the show will be set in Austin, it seems unlikely, given that the first season was set in a fictional town.

That said, as anyone who commutes on I-35  has dreamed of Austin with 2 percent fewer people.
