News & Interviews for The Leftovers: Season 3
It may well be that in the end, as in Lost, there are just too many stray threads to tie up. But whether or not the makers manage to nail the landing, it's quite the routine.
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.
Returning this week for a third and final season, the work of several master storytellers, is HBO's The Leftovers, and if you have never seen it, try dipping in just to get a feel of how far TV drama has travelled in the past decade.
