HBO has confirmed an April return for THE LEFTOVERS, with the drama series set to kick off its eight-episode, third and final season SUNDAY, APRIL 16 (9:00–10:00 p.m. ET/PT). The new season of the Peabody Award-winning show, which was created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, finds the Garvey and Murphy families coming together as they desperately grasp for a system of belief to help better explain that which defies explanation. The world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen, a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their journey Down Under.

The cast includes Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Kevin Carroll, Christopher Eccleston, Scott Glenn, Lindsay Duncan, Regina King, Jovan Adepo, Janel Moloney, Margaret Qualley, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, Liv Tyler and Chris Zylka. Filmed on location in Texas and Australia; executive produced by Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta, Mimi Leder, Tom Spezialy, Gene Kelly, Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey; Lindelof serves as showrunner. THE LEFTOVERS is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television.
