HBO has released a new trailer for their upcoming series, The Leftovers. The story takes place after the 2% of the population mysterious disappears, and centers on the people in a small town that didn’t make the cut. Although it seemed like the series would be taking place after the Rapture, this trailer makes it clear that the reason for the disappearance is unknown, so presumably the “why” will hang over the series until the question is answered or a character definitively states that the answer doesn’t matter, and the show never focuses on it again.
Hit the jump to check out the new The Leftovers trailer. The series premieres on June 29th at 10pm, and stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, and Chris Zylka.
