Another Leftovers leftover is coming back to TV. Justin Theroux is joining the already-stellar combo of Jonah Hill and Emma Stone in new Netflix dark comedy series Maniac, as helmed by True Detective and Beasts of No Nation director Cary Fukunaga.
Look, I’ll be honest: despite the runaway success of 2014’s The LEGO Movie and last year’s The LEGO Batman Movie, I was never really sure why Warner Bros. was moving forward with The LEGO NINJAGO Movie as the third entry in its LEGO cinematic universe. Maybe I’m completely out of touch - “No, it’s the children who are wrong!” - but the NINJAGO series of video games and movies doesn’t have quite the same pull as the licensed LEGO toys. Besides, isn’t NINJAGO basically just an animated version of Power Rangers? Does the summer really need a second one of those?
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
Just because we let the mystery be doesn’t mean we have to let the mystery go. The Leftovers will live on with three of the most consistently great seasons in all TV, and now even those who missed out can get the big answers with a free streaming version of June’s series finale.
The Leftovers has come to a somber, emotional close; finally returning us to that far-flung future of Nora living in Australia under an assumed name. Tears were shed, goats were rescued and “Matt Libs” were written, but perhaps most shocking of all – did Damon Lindelof actually offer an explanation of the Sudden Departure? Let’s take a closer look.
The Leftovers finally came to a close on Sunday night with one of the quietest episodes of the series. After three years of chronicling the post-apocalyptic misery of Justin Theroux‘s Kevin Garvey, the series finale pivoted to showcase Nora’s (Carrie Coon) perspective.
The world of The Leftovers may not be coming to an end after all (we don’t think), but there’s more than a few threads to tie off with the series finale, including one major time jump. See how it all comes to an end with a first trailer for The Leftovers series finale, departing next Sunday.
