Fans, rejoice: The Leftovers may be over for the season, but it isn't about to depart for good. President of HBO Programming Michael Lombardo announced today that the series will return to the network for a third season.
"We are thrilled to welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind The Leftovers for a third season. The critical and fan-based response to Season 2 has been exceptional and has catapulted the show to a level of awareness and appreciation that makes it even more exciting to see where these original storytellers will take us.”
The New York Times hailed The Leftovers as "outstanding" and "master class," while HitFix.com deemed the show "TV’s best drama," as well as "powerful, immersive." The Hollywood Reporter said that "every performance is superlative," and TVLine.com called the series "breathtaking, audacious, innovative." The second season has been included in many Best of 2015 critics’ lists, with Vulture lauding the series as "one of the great dramas in American television."
Where do you hope the show takes us in the new season?
