The third and final season of HBO’s “The Leftovers” hits soon with the show’s cast and crew reunited last night in Hollywood to celebrate the launch of the remaining episodes.
Showrunner and co-creator Damon Lindelof made it clear to Variety that the closed-ended series finale leaves no possibility of return:
“This is it; we left no dangling threads, no to be continued, no spinoff possibilities. We made pretty sure that this was going to be the last season of the show. The audience deserves as satisfying an ending as we can give them. I don’t think anyone wants to see a question mark at the end of this.”
The new season sees the Garvey family and Nora Durst head to Australia when it is predicted that the world will ultimately end seven years after 2% of the world population inexplicably disappeared. Actress Carrie Coon says she feels very satisfied with the way the show closes out:
“I think in a show like this, you can have a really explosive, shocking ending or you can have something that feels really truthful and I think that’s what we have. I was so proud to be a part of it, and I’m a big part of it.”
The final season of “The Leftovers” kicks off April 16th on HBO.
