The Rapture happened, but not quite like it’s supposed to. That’s the premise of HBO’s newly ordered series The Leftovers from Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof. The post-rapture series is based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel of the same name and tells the story of the people who didn’t make the cut – in a world that will never be the same.
Lindelof will serve as showrunner and also co-wrote the pilot with author Perrotta. Peter Berg will direct the pilot.
The 10 episode first season will star Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Carrie Coon, Emily Meade, Amanda Warren, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph, Brad Leland.
