The co-creators of The LeftoversDamon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, recently announced the third and final season of their drama premieres next April. Season two brought the Garvey family to Texas, but some of them are picking up and moving again this upcoming season. Most of season three takes place in Australia, where Kevin Gary Jr. (Justin Theroux) goes to see his father (Scott Glenn) and to experience more of the unexplainable, probably.

The Leftovers renewed

The third and final season of The Leftovers is only four months away. While season one of co-creator Damon Lindelof‘s drama polarized viewers, season two received much more acclaim, and rightfully so. The second chapter of the Tom Perrota adaptation took the series to trippier, funnier, and more dramatic places. Season two concluded on an incredibly cathartic note, but there’s more than likely plenty of struggles left ahead for the Garveys and the Murphys.

With season two of HBO’s The Leftovers, showrunner Damon Lindelof and all involved were telling a story about geography. The show picked up and moved to Jarden, Texas, for thematic reasons, and, by moving to Australia, season three is pulling a similar move. In December, it was announced season three is the final season of The Leftovers, which, Lindelof says, will conclude with an ending they’ve structured the entire upcoming chapter around.

The Leftovers is never afraid of showing a little soul-crushing drama. The HBO show is often bleak, but it is about loss and suffering, so why wouldn’t it be? Perhaps the finest and most grueling scene in The Leftovers season two features Nora Durst (Carrie Coon) and Erika Murphy (Regina King), slowly poking each other’s wounds, and director Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah) uses some striking close-ups to fully convey their pain. It’s a powerful moment, one showrunner Damon Lindelof is quite fond of.

Below, read Lindelof’s thoughts on the show’s unconventional style of storytelling, director Mimi Leder‘s work, binge-watching, and more. (Spoilers are discussed).

After season two of The Leftovers, it feels like season one hasn’t totally gotten its due. Admittedly, the HBO drama got off to a rough start, but midway through chapter one, the adaptation of Tom Perrotta‘s book began to soar. By the time “Guest” aired, directed by Carl Franklin (One False Move), The Leftovers began delving deeper into its world and characters — and season two continued to do the same. The main mystery became less of a burning question and the drama grew richer.

Showrunner and writer Damon Lindelof remains immensely proud of season one, but there were lessons learned that him and his collaborators kept in mind during season two. Below, read our conversation with Lindelof. (Spoilers for Season 2 of The Leftovers ahead.)

Lindelof 1

Midway through season one of HBO’s The Leftovers, the show found its footing, going on to deliver heartbreaking, romantic, strangely comedic, and honest stories about family. The show continued to improve, and by the time season two premiered, the show was on its way to delivering an ambitious, dense, and more surreal chapter in its three-part story.

Based on Tom Perrotta‘s book, The Leftovers allowed co-creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof to start almost from scratch in season two. When season one ended, that was the end of Perrotta’s book. This past season some of the key characters picked up and moved to Jarden, Texas, where they learned not even paradise is perfect.
