'The Leftovers' Renewed for Third and Final Season

'The Leftovers' Renewed for Third and Final Season
HBO recently wrapped up the second season of its strange drama show The Leftovers, but fans will be happy to know that it's coming back for a third season.

As Variety reports, the show will return for one final batch of episodes.

HBO programming president Michael Lombardo shared the following statement:

It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind The Leftovers for its third and final season. This show has proven to be one of the most distinctive HBO series and we are extremely proud of its unrivaled originality, which has resulted in such a passionate following by our HBO viewers. We admire and fully support Damon's artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.

Co-creator Damon Lindelof also offered a statement:

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.
