The Leftovers took a break from filming in Austin, Texas, so that series creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, as well as several cast members, could visit the Television Critics Association's summer convocation in Los Angeles on Thursday, July 30. The television reporters assembled were treated to juicy details about what's to come on the drama. The big news, which the first teaser hinted at, is that Season 2 will shift from Mapleton to a new setting: a small town in eastern Texas with a population of 9261...and zero departures.

Check out members of both families in the first seven officially released photos below.
