The third and final season of HBO’s The Leftovers will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday July 4th at 10pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
Created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers is set just after the apocalypse. When the Rapture happened, but not quite like it’s supposed to. The series tells the story of the people who didn’t make the cut and a world that will never be the same. The drama series stars Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Kevin Carroll, Christopher Eccleston, Scott Glenn, Lindsay Duncan, Regina King, Jovan Adepo, Janel Moloney, Margaret Qualley, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, Liv Tyler and Chris Zylka.
The show’s final season, which was filmed on location in Texas and Australia, finds the Garvey and Murphy families coming together as they desperately grasp for a system of belief to help better explain that which defies explanation. The world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen, a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their journey Down Under. The executive producers are Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta, Mimi Leder, Tom Spezialy, Gene Kelly, Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey. Lindelof serves as showrunner.
