Do you believe in Miracle? Miracle, Texas, that is. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) certainly does and in "The Leftovers" Season 2 he is relocating his family from New York to the mysterious Texas town where allegedly not a single, solitary person disappeared in the unexplained event that sparked the HBO series. However, while at first glance the town might appear to be a godsend, emphasis on the God, the latest trailer for the new episodes reveals that there may be more to Miracle than meets the eye.
In the new trailer, trouble seems to be brewing below the surface of the seemingly perfect town. For starters, it seems a religious fervor has taken over the town, whose residents believe they were chosen to be spared. Plus, apparently everyone else wants to be a part of the miracle because trailers full of people are moving or camping nearby to catch some of the magic. The town is even selling t-shirts: "Miracle, Texas -- Population: 9261, Departures: Zero." To make matters worse, there are some dangerous forces at work in Miracle that may or may not involve Kevin's mysterious new neighbor, John Murphy (Kevin Carroll), the Guilty Remnant, and a possibly-alive Patti (Ann Dowd), who, after showing up in a shot of the first trailer, speaks to Kevin in the latest tease. Fans will remember that Patti, the leader of the Guilty Remnant, appeared to kill herself in Season 1.

Though the series if shifting to a new location, many of fans' favorite characters will return, including Kevin Garner's makeshift new family, including girlfriend Nora (Carrie Coon), daughter Jill (Margaret Qualley) and the newborn baby that they discovered towards the end of Season 1. The show's star, Justin Theroux, says the cast is an off-camera family as well, often out of necessity in dealing with the show's depressingly heavy storylines.
“It’s like a family. You have to keep it light. When the work has to be done, the work has to be done, but if you don’t keep it a little light at times, everyone’s going to be miserable,” Theroux told People. “It’s not a space you want to live in when a camera isn’t rolling.”
What is going on in Miracle, Texas? Is Patti alive? Fans will have to wait to find out. "The Leftovers" Season 2 premieres Sunday, Oct. 4, on HBO.
