Third and final season of The Leftovers set for April 2017

7 December 2016 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Co-creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta took to Facebook yesterday to announce the premiere month for the third and final season of The Leftovers. Before joining his fellow Guilty Remnant members in deciding not to speak, Lindelof asked Perrotta to reveal when the show will be returning via his pad, to which Perotta wrote: “April 2017.” Check out Lindelof and Perotta’s video below…

April 2017 is only four months away, and while an exact date in that month wasn’t given, it will surely be revealed as the month inches closer. Typically, the month is reserved for the premiere of a new Game of Thrones season, but the seventh season’s debut has been delayed until summer 2017.

The first season of The Leftovers left many viewers with mixed feelings, but, unlike most shows, the next season saw a major increase in quality. The Leftovers, rather quickly, went from thought-provoking yet messy »

The third and final season of The Leftovers lands a 2017 premiere

6 December 2016 4:16 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

In order to accommodate some appropriately grim weather, production on HBO's Game of Thrones was pushed back which meant that the series wouldn't premiere in its customary March/April slot and would instead debut sometime in late summer or fall. This left a prime slot open in HBO's 2017 schedule and it was announced today, by series creators Damon Lindelof and Tom... Read More »

Here's What to Expect From the Final Season of The Leftovers

6 December 2016 3:10 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There are two kinds of people in this mixed-up, TV-watching world we live in: those who powered through the first season of The Leftovers and were rewarded with an immensely nuanced second season, and those who gave up after a few episodes (or never cared in the first place). Those of us in the former group have been waiting a year to find out what happens to the Garvey family after the bonkers season two finale, and now we've finally got some answers on what to expect from the third - and final - season. The End Is Nigh The second-season finale would have been a perfectly acceptable ending for The Leftovers, but HBO is giving us one final season before we say goodbye for good. There's a New Setting Season one of The Leftovers takes place in New York, while the second season is mostly set in Texas. The »

‘The Leftovers’ Third and Final Season to Premiere Spring 2017 on HBO

6 December 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The third and final season of The Leftovers is only four months away. While season one of co-creator Damon Lindelof‘s drama polarized viewers, season two received much more acclaim, and rightfully so. The second chapter of the Tom Perrota adaptation took the series to trippier, funnier, and more dramatic places. Season two concluded on an incredibly cathartic note, but […]

It’s been about a year since fans had their last taste of the HBO drama series The Leftovers. While not exactly a ratings hit (each episode hit less than a million viewers each week — compared to Game of Thrones, which regularly hits over 7 million viewers an episode), the series has its rabid fans, how have been hungry for more since December 2015.

Well, the wait is officially over. As revealed via social media by show creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta — the latter of whom penned the book on which the series is based — the third and final season will hit HBO starting April 2017.

HBO picked up the series for a final batch of eight episodes last December, though even Lindelof was worried about a renewal. “Tom, myself and our incredible team of writers and producers put tremendous care into designing those seasons as novels unto themselves…with beginnings, middles, and ends,” Lindelof said in response to the pickup. “As we finished our most recent season, it became clear to us that the series as a whole was following the same model…and with our beginning and middle complete, the most exciting thing for us as storytellers would be to »

HBO said today that The Leftovers, its sci-fi drama created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, will return for its eight-episode third and final season in April.

Which TV Showrunner Would Make the Best Thanksgiving Guest? — IndieWire Critics Survey

22 November 2016 9:07 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which showrunner would you like to invite to Thanksgiving dinner and why?

Liz Shannon Miller (@lizlet), IndieWire

Think what you will of her shows (personally, I think Season 1 of “Scandal” is a modern classic), but Shonda Rhimes is a delight. After reading her recent book “The Year of Yes,” I’ve been semi-obsessed with Shonda’s (I feel like I can call her Shonda) wit, confidence, and positive outlook. I’d like to believe that if Shonda said yes to dinner, she’d be a lively force at the table, a help in the kitchen before and after, and damn right she’d bring some incredible wine with her to share. »

‘You’re the Worst’ Season 3 Finale Review: A Novel Ending No One Expected Caps an Adventurous Year for Families

16 November 2016 8:21 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Warning: The below article contains spoilers for “You’re the Worst” Season 3, through the finale.]

“There is no family.”

Those were the only words I heard during Jimmy’s loquacious diatribe about being “post-family” (like “Thoreau or the Unabomber”) that kicked off the Season 3 finale of “You’re the Worst.” As is fitting for a series so beautifully written (Episode 13, “No Longer Just Us,” by Stephen Falk, Franklin Hardy and Shane Kosakowski), the beginning foreshadowed the ending without giving it away. In fact, the final moments turned the opening scene on its head.

So when Gretchen started gushing with joy post-proposal about how they’re “a family now,” “no longer just ‘us,'” it was quite clear the happy ending in Jimmy’s new novel wouldn’t come true for the romantic pair at the center of our story.

Instead, “You’re the Worst’s” bold third season wrapped on a note similar to this:

Kevin Feige on How a Marvel Movie Like ‘Doctor Strange’ Is Developed, & Why Time Travel Won’t Ruin the McU

4 November 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

There is almost no better interview in Hollywood than Marvel Studios’ head Kevin Feige. He’s the mastermind over the Marvel Cinematic Universe and always has the best responses, even if he sometimes slyly avoids giving a direct answer. I think only Damon Lindelof did this kind of interview better when he was showrunner of Lost. […]

God Bless The Chicago Cubs, But Watching The World Series Is Pure Hell

27 October 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I made my first drink in the second inning of the second game of the 2016 World Series.

My Cubbies were up 1-0 against the Cleveland Indians, playing 350 miles east of sweet home Chicago, and playoff hero Javy Baez had just gotten a soft base knock. What very well could have been a run-of-the-mill groundout took a funny bounce on a tricky play for the third baseman, and Javy hustled his way to a single. Luck seemed to be on our side. We had a runner on base with no outs and our first lead of the young series.

Suddenly, I was nervous.
