HBO’s “The Leftovers” is now filming in Texas and is casting locals for season 2
The HBO series is looking for Austin area locals who would like to make some extra cash by working as paid TV show extras.
What would you do if the majority of the population vanished into thin air? Well that’s the story behind HBO’s “The Leftovers“. When the show began….. 2% of the world’s population just kinda disappeared, vanished without warning. 140 million people vanished without a trace. Everyone was affected. It encompassed all continents, all countries and all the world’s cities, well, except for 1. The show focuses on 2 families, the Garveys, whose lives where changed by the events and the Murphys. “The Leftovers” is created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta. Seems that season 2 will be switching things up a bit.
According to Cinemablend, season 2 will have a location change in the story. The article reveals that many characters from season 1 may not be back in season 2 including many of the cast that played residents of Mapleton, NY. There are also rumors that this may be the course for the show, switching locations with every new season… Other show’s have done it, such as Sci Fi’s “Helix” series. Guess we shall wait and see what happens next and who returns.
“The Leftovers” stars 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 show will be filming around Austin through October and is now accepting submissions from locals who would like to work as paid background extras.
