The Leftovers Season 3

The Leftovers' Third and (Sigh... ) Final Season to Bow in April 2017

HBO is breaking its silence with regard to The Leftovers‘ return date: The acclaimed HBO drama will launch its eight-episode third and final season in April.

Exec producers Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta confirmed the news on Facebook Tuesday, with the latter putting a Guilty Remnant spin on the announcement.

As we previously reported, Season 3 — which was shot on location in Australia — will feature returning series regulars Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka and Janel Moloney. Additionally, Season 2’s entire Murphy clan — i.e. Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Jasmin Savoy-Brown — will return. Also back in a big way: Scott Glenn, who has been bumped up to series regular. Glenn recurred in Seasons 1 and 2 as the father of Theroux’s Kevin Garvey. (Savoy-Brown has also been upped to a regular after guest-starring in Season 2.)

Lindelof recently teased that the series’ final eight episodes may not feel quite like The Leftovers to which fans are accustomed. Besides the new Down Under setting, it’s also, obviously, “ending, and that’s infusing it with a certain degree of energy that’s different, perhaps, than the previous seasons.”

    Makes sense. Taking Game of Thrones spot because that is delayed. Looking forward to it. Rewatching seasons 1 and 2 on my new blu-rays right now!

    Such a long wait! But I’m still looking forward to it, thanks for the update.

  3. What about Ann Dowd? (Patti Levin). She made the series for me.

    JV stinks like old library

    If they end it right, then I have no problem with that.

  6. Jack Rosenblatt says:

    Are you sure it’s 8 episodes? The last two seasons have each been 10 each.

    I really don’t know how or why this show how flown so far under the radar. It really hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. I really love this show and am somewhat saddened by the fact that it’s ending after only 3 seasons. However, it may be a good thing to not prolong it if this is the way the writers envision it. Hopefully the viewers will be happy with it’s conclusion. I suspect it will have a very open ending that will be open to interpretation. I usually hate that kind of thing but for this show it may be fitting. Looking forward to this!
