While HBO’s Game of Thrones might have stolen the television news cycle, another popular HBO has been announced. The Leftovers will be returning for a third and final season on April 16th!
Damon Lindelof took to Instagram to announce the date and poked fun at Game of Thrones.
Showrunners Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta spoke to Entertainment Weekly about this final season of The Leftovers.
“Australia is the end of the world geographically and our show is about the end-of-the-world emotionally. And there’s also something about Australian cinema — it’s primal, ancient and spiritual — that felt like it fit The Leftovers, whether it’s Mad Max movies or Walkabout, or Waking Fright or Peter Weir movies.”
“Though there are some big crazy ideas in the third-and-final season, we wanted to feel like we were building toward something conclusive. I wanted to take full advantage of the fact that when the audience watches the first episode of season 3 that they know it’s the beginning of the end. You don’t want to feel like an epilogue, but a climax.”
