News & Interviews for The Leftovers: Season 3
As gonzo as the new season is, it never loses touch with what the show is about: coping with unbearable loss.
There's still something about this program that can't be put into words. There's something almost religious about in the way you just need to see it, feel it, and believe.
Between the prospect of a definitive ending, the looming fear of catastrophe, and the continually exceptional performances, it's bravura television that somehow follows the model of earlier seasons while subverting expectations.
Exciting, ambitious, baffling and not always tethered to coherent storytelling, The Leftovers is one of TV's best series.
Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta's final season is a masterpiece more in tune with the moment than anything you'll see this year.
No matter how you feel about the actual subject matter, the performances and teleplays were transcendent.
Each episode is a reawakening, a daring reorientation of characters or setting, and they're all building towards something world-changing.
The show ultimately connects the Departure to the experience of loss and grief - religion does not so much explain the mysteries of life as provide a framework for living within them.
It has been one of the most intense emotional experiences of the last years on television. And possibly, the best series of recent times. It leaves when we need it most. [Full Review in Spanish]
It isn't an easy watch. If you're struggling with grief, choose something else. For everyone else, The Leftovers is one of the decade's best shows and definitely deserves repeat viewing.
Pillar saints, sacrificial goats, four horsewomen of the Apocalypse, resurrections, miracles - it's all here.
Audience Reviews for The Leftovers: Season 3
Apr 28, 2021an under-appreciated classic
Apr 28, 2021Horrible payoff to the mystery of the entire show. Way too many dream scenes. Nora is extremely annoying. Episodes drag on. Wish I didn't invest so much time in this show.
Jan 27, 2021One of the best shows on TV. Season 3 was a masterpiece.
Nov 27, 2020One of the greatest TV series of all time. It is there with Dark, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, etc. This series focuses on how people deal with their grief and loss. Mind blowing, out of the box, artistic, symbolic, and plenty of biblical & cultural references. Classy opening theme from Max Richter too, showing missing people being taken towards the sky | follow us at @uncle.review
May 23, 2020Season one did just enough to get me hooked. I'm so pleased it did, thought provoking material and some fine performances.
Apr 05, 2020A perfectly fine final season... but a story is only as good as its antagonist, and Season 3 simply had no antagonist. All of the great character moments never quite made up for this. It goes the route of Lost and half-answers the big questions, leaving us slightly unsatisfied after an overall fun ride.
Mar 25, 2020Will there ever be another piece of television like this ? One can only hope.... Episode 3, "Crazy Whitefella Thinking" ( with its full on nod to Nig Roegs seminal "Walkabout", inclusive of David Gulpilil [ Chris Sunday ] AND the VW beetle in the same colour ) was absolutely fantastic with a great turn by Scott Glenn. Episode 6, "Certified" had me in pieces. If ever an hours TV could convey what loss, and dealing with it means, and stir that kind of sorrow, I'd be a basket case. The final denouement was a masterclass from Carrie Coon notwithstanding her sidekick Theroux . Moved beyond belief would be doing it a disservice. A truly absorbing, thought provoking, emotional roller coaster of a ride. One for the ages without a doubt. Thanks to every single "mortal" who contributed. See you on the other side......
Oct 22, 2019Ending was blah likenthey didnt knownhow to end it. All the work up of the main character being a hero never happened. They just went with some sci fyi tech that could never happen ending and let the build up of the character just fall off a clif.
Feb 21, 2019The Leftovers is an amazing journey into the conflicts, psychology and struggles when dealing with loss. Each character is developed well to create a rich tapestry of how different people deal with loss. The writing is superb allowing the viewer to understand some of the bizarre ways humanity deals with losing those close to us. There are many questions and threads entering Season 3 and the writers manage to address all of these stories. The writing is excellent and believable while maintaining a real compassion for each of the characters. The characters were portrayed magnificently by the actors, leaving the viewer invested and caring about them. The music is fantastic and many tracks have made it into my playlists One of the best series I have watched in years.
Dec 07, 2018The weirdest, craziest, most profound, most enthralling season of television ever created.
