HBO's 'The Leftovers' Finally Reveals Season 3 Premiere Date
Published Jan 24, 2017Following the news a few years back that HBO would be giving The Leftovers a third and final season, we at last know when that will be. Today (January 24) star Justin Theroux took to his Instagram to reveal that the third season of The Leftovers will finally arrive on April 16.
As you can see below, the teaser comes with a neon cross blazing the words "The end is near," with the HBO premiere date of April 16 pasted below. Amazingly, Theroux snuck in a cigarette emoji in the caption — a reference fans of the show will immediately pick up.
The upcoming season features many returning stars, including Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Kevin Carroll, Christopher Eccleston, Scott Glenn, Regina King, Jovan Adepo, Janel Moloney, Margaret Qualley, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, Liv Tyler, and Chris Zylka. It's also adding Lindsay Duncan to the cast.
The Leftovers has been filming in both Texas and Australia, with co-creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta still at the helm.
Lindelof previously had this to say about the upcoming final season:
Tom, myself and our incredible team of writers and producers put tremendous care into designing those seasons as novels unto themselves…with beginnings, middles and ends. As we finished our most recent season, it became clear to us that the series as a whole was following the same model…and with our beginning and middle complete, the most exciting thing for us as storytellers would be to bring The Leftovers to a definitive end. And by 'definitive,' we mean 'wildly ambiguous but hopefully mega-emotional,' as all things related to this show are destined to be.
