What’s This TV Show About?
A fantasy drama series on the HBO premium channel, The Leftovers stars 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. An adaptation of the Tom Perrotta novel, this TV series explores what happens when 2% of the world’s population inexplicably vanishes. In the third and final season, the Garvey and Murphy families come together as they seek reasons for that which defies explanation. It feels like something big is coming — a bookend to the “Sudden Departure” that rocked the world and brings their journey Down Under.
