“Some bad s–t’s coming, and there’s no getting around it.” That chilling — and unfortunately accurate — statement sets the stage for HBO’s upcoming drama The Leftovers, which rolled out its first full-length trailer Sunday night.
Set shortly after 2 percent of the world’s population suddenly disappears, The Leftovers follows police chief Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) and the other 98 percent of the population that is, for better or worse, “still here.”
Though HBO has released a few sneak peeks already, this new trailer showcases more of the key players in writer/executive producer Damon Lindelof’s drama, including Amy Brenneman (Private Practice) as Kevin’s wife Laurie, Chris Zylka (Twisted) as their son Tom and Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings) as cult-target Meg.
The Leftovers premieres June 29 at 10/9c.
