It’s been discussed, scrutinized, and studied from all corners of the internet, and HBO has finally confirmed what we have long suspected: yes, The Leftovers will be returning

The show—created by Lost mastermind Damon Lindelof—has drawn a mixed reaction, largely for its very bleak tone. There’s also been a lot of talk about star Justin Theroux’s choice of jogging gear, but that is an entirely different discussion.

The important takeaway here is that now we can all breathe a sigh of relief that television’s most depressing show will be back for Round 2, hopefully this time with even more public stoning.
