Leftovers Season 3 Spoilers

Damon Lindelof Teases The Leftovers' Final Season — and Its Very Last Scene

Already having shot the first two episodes of The Leftovers’ third and final season, co-creator Damon Lindelof can see the finish line getting closer. But what’s there? How will the HBO drama end? Will the last scene shock or comfort viewers? “Definitely not shock,” he promises our sister site Deadline. “As for comfort — well, that’s all relative.”

According to the Lost vet, when breaking down Season 3, the creative team “started with the very end [and] eventually said, ‘What do we want the last scene of the series to be [and] what do we want that scene to evoke emotionally?’… [The] conversations started in a very abstract way and as they developed… sort of formed themselves into, ‘OK, we know what that last scene is — now, how are we going to get there?'”

Lindelof cautions fans that The Leftovers that concludes next year might not feel quite like The Leftovers to which they are accustomed. Besides the fact that the show is moving to a new setting (Australia) and getting fresh blood (Rome’s Lindsay Duncan), it’s also, obviously, “ending, and that’s infusing it with a certain degree of energy that’s different, perhaps, than the previous seasons.”

How do you hope The Leftovers ends? Hit the comments.

    For everyone to have a dinner a la The Last Supper and in the blink of an eye, with all the love in the air and what not, they all get raptured, leaving a dinner table full of food, drinks & dessert but without people.

      That would actually be amazing and I’ve always thought it would end that way.

      Almost like the first “rapture” was a test run but we’re going to see the real thing at the end – everyone on earth disappearing.

    • Sparkle Henry says:

      I simply asked this show and don’t want it to end……… Period.

  2. Hellas13 says:

    Afraid it will be a complete mess and disappointing.

  3. Temperance says:

    What a dreadful show. I’m thrilled it’s going away.

    • Nicole says:

      If you hate the show, why did you not only take the time to read an article about it, but then also leave a comment? Take your negativity elsewhere please

    The Leftovers is one of the best shows I have ever seen. Brilliant in all respects. Can’t wait for S3. Sad it is ending but can’t wait to see what happens.

  7. R.O.B. says:

    As long as they use the same music composer – the music for The Leftovers is genius, including the dramatically different theme they used for the hotel episode.

  8. Kayte CookWatts says:

    It’s an absolutely beautiful show. The only show even close to its quality is Rectify, and that’s ending too.

  9. This show has been amazing and I can’t wait for season 3! Bummed it will be the last, but at least HBO gave it one more to end it the way they want it to. Hoping the Emmys show some love to the show and the cast this year!
