‘The Leftovers’ Sets 2017 Final Season Premiere, See the First Footage!
Eagle-eyed fans of HBO’s The Leftovers got a quick taste of footage for the third and final season by Sunday’s “Coming in 2017” trailer, but at last, we’re finally narrowing that description. Find out when in 2017 Damon Lindelof’s rapturous existential drama will premiere Season 3, with a special message from the creators!
Lindelof took to Twitter with help from a Guilty Remnant-ized Tom Perrotta, author of the original novel, in order to narrow down a premiere window. The final eight-episode season of The Leftovers will premiere in April 2017, with a more formal Sunday to be chosen by HBO in the coming months.
In case that’s too long to wait, check out the (extremely) brief footage from Season 3 teased on Sunday:
Meanwhile, The Leftovers Season 3 has long-since wrapped the portion of its final run still set in the fictional Jarden, Texas, having subsequently moved to Australia. The final year will take the spring slot vacated by Game of Thrones, with Birdman and Alice: Through the Looking Glass star Lindsay Duncan joining the cast in an unspecified role.
Near of the entire Season 2 cast has been confirmed to return for the final year, though no word on who, or how anyone might end up in Australia beyond either Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) or his father, Kevin Sr. (now-elevated series regular Scott Glenn). The series has also released its first photos from the final season.
Here’s hoping The Leftovers Season 3 comes out with additional footage soon, but are we ready to say goodbye in April 2017?
