HBO Renews ‘The Leftovers’ for Season Three.

Fans were relieved Thursday when HBO announced that Damon Lindelof’s “The Leftovers” would return for a third and final season. The show, based on the Tom Perrotta novel set in the aftermath of the disappearance of people around the world, suffered from a ratings drop in Season 2, but its core viewers became even more passionate about it.

The whole season took place in a Texas town untouched by the Rapture, the “sudden departure” that rocked the show’s world, and the drastic change in scenery — the first season took place in New York — paid palpable dividends in terms of audience response. Television. “It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind The Leftovers,” said Michael Lombardo, president, HBO programming. “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. Created by Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for “Lost”) and Tom Perrotta (Academy Award® nominee for “Little Children”), the series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. It wasn’t clear after the second season’s finale whether or not Lindelof and his creative team would be able to continue with the show. “The way we built the second season was Tom [Perrotta] and myself went into a room with a bunch of incredibly talented writers and we started to bounce ideas off the wall and we started to get excited about some of them,” said Lindelof in a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I want to do the same thing again, but that hasn’t happened yet — it can’t happen until HBO says we want more…

We admire and fully support Damon’s artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.” “I have never, ever experienced the level of creative support and trust that I have received from HBO during the last two seasons of The Leftovers,” Lindelof said. “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. If we get to do more, I’m going to try not to f— it up.” In an interview with Hitfix’s Alan Sepinwall, Lindelof confirmed that he wanted to end the show after three seasons. “It’s a gut feeling,” said Lindelof. “I feel like there’s more story, but not MUCH more. And by ‘definitive,’ we mean ‘wildly ambiguous but hopefully mega-emotional,’ as all things related to this show are destined to be. “On behalf of our incredible crew and superb cast, we are all tremendously grateful that HBO is giving us an opportunity to conclude the show on our own terms…an opportunity like this one rarely comes along, and we have every intention of living up to it,” Lindelof continued. “One more thing. We feel absolutely privileged to heat up one last helping of leftovers.” In addition to Theroux, season two featured Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Carrie Coon, Liv Tyler, Ann Dowd, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Janel Moloney.

Season two told a tale of two families, the Garveys and the Murphys, whose lives intersected in surprising ways, following the Garveys from New York to eastern Texas, where one small town, nicknamed “Miracle,” and its residents had been spared during The Departure.
