HBO Renews 'The Leftovers' For Final Season

HBO has renewed its drama series The Leftovers for a third and final season, the network said Thursday.

The series, about the lives of the people left on earth after The Rapture, is produced by Damon Lindeloff and Tom Perrotta, based on the book of the same name by Perrotta.

The second season of the series 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.

“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,” 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. We admire and fully support Damon’s artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season.”
