HBO's THE LEFTOVERS Season 3 Gets a Trailer and Release Date
HBO has released a trailer for the third and final season of Damon Lindelof's The Leftovers, and this season takes place in Australia. This is the country where Kevin Gary Jr.'s (Justin Theroux) father (Scott Glenn) lives. This trailer captures the tone of the series perfectly with The Beach Boys’ “Don’t Worry Baby” song playing as we see several concerned and worried faces looking up at the sky with a message saying, "The End is Near."
It was also announced that season three is scheduled to premiere on HBO on April 16, 2017. I'm a fan of this show because I've just become fascinated with these characters and this strange new world that they are living in, and I'm curious to see how it all ends. When previously talking about the series, Lindelof said:
The big thing we gotta figure out for season three is: Where are we going to end it? What’s the last episode of this series going to be? We’ll design the entire season basically building up to that moment. I think there was a very purposeful circularity between seasons one and two, with the ‘wherever you go, there you are’ theme of it all. We decided to end the second season very similar to the first season. The Garveys felt like they could pickup and go to this place the Departure didn’t happen, but lo and behold, the same exact thing happened. The only safe place is the place you’re surrounded by the people you love. We can’t do that again, and not just because the audience is expecting it, but because we were telling a story about geography in season two, while season three is going to be something else entirely.
The Leftovers also stars Carrie Coon, Margaret Qualley, Kevin Carroll, Regina King, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Chris Zylka, Janel Moloney, and Jovan Adepo.
