HBO Sets Date for New Series: The Leftovers

By Jacob Klein on Apr 3, 2014 to The Leftovers


We’ve been reporting on this one for a while and it’s finally happening!  Summers aren’t going to be the same without True Blood on HBO but we’re hoping this series more than makes up for it.

From Damon Lindelof (Emmy winner for “Lost”) and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Academy Award nominee for “Little Children”), THE LEFTOVERS begins its ten-episode season SUNDAY, JUNE 15 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately following the season finale of “Game of Thrones.” Based on Perrotta’s bestselling novel of the same name, the drama series is an original look at The Rapture…because it’s not entirely clear The Rapture happened. Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka star. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner.

This should be on EVERYONE’s radar as HBO is pairing big names with an interesting premise.  Interested?  Why not read the book while you wait?

    The premise, as I read it on another site, reminded me of the Under The Dome series, which is also based on a novel by the same name, where a town is suddenly covered by a mysterious dome, and we see the people of the town reacting to the event.
