Damon Lindelof Talks ‘Leftovers’ Season 2 Finale, Show’s Future: ‘We Want There to Be More’

6 December 2015 8:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “I Live Here Now,” the season 2 finale of “The Leftovers.”

The final installment of “The Leftovers” season two was all about awakenings: Mary (Janel Moloney), Matt’s wife, finally woke up from her comatose state. The town of Jarden — and the enclave of seekers just outside its gates — realized that the Guilty Remnant had been hanging around for some time, planning a secretive and scary operation. The Guilty Remnant leader, Meg (Liv Tyler), unleashed hell on Jarden, giving lie to the idea that the small Texas town had been spared the fallout of the Departure; perhaps in her mind, she was rousing its citizens to reality. And once again, Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) woke up in that purgatorial hotel, where he had to do some abjectly emotional karaoke before being allowed to awaken and return to the land of the living. »

Review: 'The Leftovers' wraps an all-time classic season with 'I Live Here Now'

6 December 2015 7:16 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's season finale of "The Leftovers" coming up just as soon as I spin the karaoke wheel... "Family is everything." -Meg "I don't understand what's happening." -John "Me neither." -Kevin "God, I hope this is not the last episode of this show." -My notes as the opening credits played I had another long conversation with Damon Lindelof about the finale, and as a bookend to the one we had before the season. Lindelof was understandably not interested in explaining many aspects of the finale, or the season, preferring to, like Iris DeMent, just let the mystery be. I suggested that certain developments in these final episodes — say, Kevin's ability to survive a near point-blank gunshot wound and not bleed out during that time he was lying on the floor of the animal quarantine; or, before that, his ability to survive not only drinking Virgil's poison (or whatever »

‘The Leftovers’: Regina King on Erika’s Face-Off With Nora (Spoilers)

8 November 2015 7:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode 206 of HBO’s “The Leftovers,” titled “Lens.”

“There are no miracles in Miracle.” Or are there? The long-simmering tension in the Murphy household finally reached its boiling point in this Sunday’s episode of HBO’s “The Leftovers,” when Regina King’s matriarch, Erika Murphy, made it clear she has had enough. Enough with her abusive husband. Enough with her manipulative father. Enough with the superstitious townspeople, who’ve been repeating the same rituals ever since the Departure.

And enough with her neighbor Nora Durst.

In yet another bravura performance by King (who recently won an Emmy for her role in ABC’s “American Crime”) as well as Carrie Coon, the two women face off for a confrontation that starts with Nora (Coon) administering the Department of Sudden Departures questionnaire as she has been trained to do — but Erika quickly turns the tables. »

Review: 'The Leftovers' Season 2 Episode 4, 'Orange Sticker,' Brings Everyone's Greatest Fear to the Forefront

25 October 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Are they gone? Are the people gone?" Nora's cry between silent sobs set up an episode steeped in mystery, as "The Leftovers" returned to the scene of the crime in "Orange Sticker." Specifically, we finally got our answer to, "What happens next?" after a suspenseful Season 2 premiere that found the Murphy's only daughter missing after a brief earthquake that somehow managed to drain a large pond. While Episode 4 didn't spend much time digging into earthly matters — like, "What was with that blue light during the earthquake?" or "What happened to all that water?" — we did learn how Kevin (Justin Theroux) ended up in the pond with a cinder block tied around his ankle, who John (Kevin Carroll) thinks is responsible for taking his daughter, why Miracle may not be all it seems (posers) and why it just might (Matt's wife).  Last Week's Review: 'The Leftovers' Season 2 Episode 3 'Off »

Kevin Carroll on The Leftovers: ‘I Don’t Know the Last Time I’ve Seen a Character of Color This Complex’

25 October 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Thanks to The Leftovers, theater vet (The Piano Lesson, A Raisin in the Sun), and Obie-award winning actor (Home) Kevin Carroll is getting plaudits from an entirely new audience with his portrayal of John Murphy, Miracle’s devoted family man, ex-felon-fire chief, and self-appointed enforcer. The journeyman actor, who’s done some movies (Paid in Full, Being John Malkovich) and TV (Survivor's Remorse, Law & Order), says he’s been spoiled by his stage roles, and feels “a sense of relief” now that a complex TV character of color has come his way. Oh, and he really regrets ever mentioning he’d never seen the show! After a long day of press, Carroll spoke with Vulture about the books on John’s nightstand, and why the role is such a breath of fresh air.Congrats on killing it in this part. You’ve said you didn’t have HBO, and didn »

The Leftovers, Ep. 2.01, “Axis Mundi”

5 October 2015 12:12 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Leftovers, Season 2, Episode 1, “Axis Mundi”

Directed by Mimi Leder

Written by Jacqueline Hoyt, Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta

Airs on Sundays at 9 pm (Et) on HBO

Three years after a global event in which 140 million people (2% of the world’s population) inexplicably disappeared, those left behind are still trying to push the catastrophic event out of sight and mind. And it seems no matter how hard they try, the sudden departure, is something they just can’t escape. The Leftovers examines the complexity of human emotions and how this event has affected everyone in different ways. It’s a masterclass in establishing mood and creating mystery and told in a series of interwoven tales of people searching for answers while others try to simply forget. Of the ten episodes in the first season, three of them (“Two Boats And A Helicopter,” “Guest,” and “The Garveys At Their Best”) were »

The Leftovers Season 2 Review

4 October 2015 8:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

The first season of HBO’s The Leftovers proved one of the most divisive in recent memory.  Throughout ten maddening, mesmerizing episodes, the series came into its own as a haunting exploration of grief, depression and earthly purpose, all the while dancing around its central mystery – why did two percent of the world’s population vanish into thin air? – without concrete plans to ever answer it. Instead, the series dove headfirst into the lives of characters forced to adapt to something inexplicable, dwelling on the misery and mystery of survival under such strange circumstances. The results were alternately soul-crushingly brutal, heart-wrenchingly beautiful and straight-up baffling; and on more than one occasion, they were all three.

But above all else, season 1 of The Leftovers felt deliberate. Especially given the showrunners (Damon Lindelof, whose Lost mythology stands among the richest and most complex ever constructed; and Tom Perrotta, »

‘The Leftovers’ Season 2 Review: Justin Theroux Drama Makes Big Changes But Stops Short of Reboot

4 October 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The first half hour of the season 2 premiere of HBO’s “The Leftovers” may have viewers wondering if they’ve tuned in to the right show. Stay with it, because the extended opening, which seems to be unrelated to the show as we know it, is planting seeds. The new chapter begins with new characters including Regina King‘s Erika Murphy, a deaf doctor, her husband John (Kevin Carroll), an ex-convict, and their two teenage children. The family lives in Jarden, Texas and while they seem normal and happy, as the hour progresses, we see cracks in that façade. We spend most. »

Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston Celebrate Season 2 of ‘The Leftovers’ at Austin Premiere

4 October 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a new season, with a new tone, in a new location — and everyone involved with “The Leftovers,” the provocative HBO series about fear and loathing in what may (or may not) be a post-Rapture world, seemed to be feeling good Saturday evening at the season two premiere in Austin, Texas, the new home base for the drama, at the historic Paramount Theater. “The Leftovers” star and newlywed Justin Theroux walked the red carpet with bride Jennifer Aniston for the first time together since their wedding in August.

For the benefit of those who tuned in late: “The Leftovers” pivots on an epochal event known as The Sudden Departure, the mysterious disappearance of two percent of the world’s population. Three years after the mass vanishing, the good citizens of Mapleton, N.Y. (along with quite a few not-so-good ones) spend much of their time grieving for lost ones, »

TV Review: ‘The Leftovers,’ Season 2

1 October 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Truly supporting creativity occasionally means giving artists the latitude to fail, and HBO — fresh off its Emmy haul — has done that, rather spectacularly, with “The Leftovers.” A creative reboot ostensibly intended to address the program’s shortcomings has merely exacerbated them, leaving behind a drama that is arty and provocative, but also pretentious and opaque to the point of infuriating. Admittedly, that appraisal’s based on an incomplete picture, after watching three second-season episodes, each told from a different perspective. Yet while season one featured some haunting moments that couldn’t quite offset the flaws, it’s hard to see this go-round recovering to that modest level.

A prologue within the premiere, frankly, will likely serve as a Rorschach test on how people respond to the program’s new direction. Those who consider the silent flashback sequence — and by that, the implication is way back, a la “Quest For Fire »

Review: 'The Leftovers' is still TV's best drama as season 2 begins

30 September 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In an upcoming episode of "The Leftovers," a book publisher considers a manuscript one of the HBO drama's main characters has written about the violent, unsettling events viewers saw last season. "There's some heartbreaking stuff in here," the publisher acknowledges, but he feels the writing is too dry, even as it recounts stories of death, loss, heartache, and all the complications of living in a world where, a few years earlier, two percent of the world's population vanished into thin air under circumstances that have baffled modern science and organized religion. "If you want them to connect with it," he tells his prospective author, "you have to tell them how it felt." Telling its audience how things feel is not a problem that "The Leftovers" itself suffers from in the slightest. In its first year, the show, adapted from Tom Perrotta's novel by Perrotta and "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof, »

Damon Lindelof: 'I was really depressed' writing 'Leftovers' season 1

29 September 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Damon Lindelof wears his heart on his sleeve, which at once makes him an ideal person to run a show like "Lost" or "The Leftovers," and the absolute last person you would want to wish that burden on. He holds nothing back, whether in his writing or in his discussion of his writing, and he takes every criticism of his work very deeply. (He quit Twitter two years ago because it wasn't healthy for him anymore to wake up every day to people cursing at him and demanding six years of their lives back.) That openness and sincerity was on display in "Leftovers" season 1. The show was despised by some for being too depressing, too slow, too opaque, and spending far too much time with the mute, chain-smoking members of the Guilty Remnant cult. But it was adored by others (like me) who fell right into the show's parallel world — one just like ours, »
