After the brilliance of The Leftovers, it’s hard to be mad about Damon Lindelof tackling something as sacred (to most comic book fans) as Watchmen. As evidenced by yesterday’s lengthy Instagram post, Lindelof is gearing up for production on his latest HBO endeavor, and today brings word of the first official casting news for the upcoming series — which, by the way, is not a direct adaptation.
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!
HBO’s The Leftovers has almost a yearly tradition of shifting locales, but with a rumored move so drastic as Australia, many had to wonder if the third and final season would plausibly take everyone down under. Thankfully, it seems most all of The Leftovers’ Season 2 cast will participate in the final year (along with a happy promotion), though we might expect a shorter run than 10 episodes.
The Leftovers Season 2 didn’t leave us with any indication that the Garvey family’s time in Miracle had come to an end, though with Season 3 confirmed as the show’s last, the Damon Lindelof rapture drama is in for another tectonic shift. The Leftovers will move the final chapter to Australia, both in story and production.
