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.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on The Leftovers – it continues to be one of our favorite series, and while we’re sad that this will be the final season, we’re glad that the creators knew that information going into this season so they could conclude this series exactly as they envisioned.
