‘The Leftovers’ season 3: Damon Lindelof on strategy of ending series

Leftovers -There are few shows that excite us quite like “The Leftovers,” and with that, we’re probably going to be super-depressed when it is done. Also, we loved the ending of “Lost” (we know not everyone did), and therefore we have every bit of faith that executive producer Damon Lindelof will end the series in the right way.

With the third and final season premiering next year, the showrunner is already starting to talk (without details, of course) about what the ending could be. For more on that, just take a look at what he had to say to Deadline:

“[We] started with the very end [and] eventually said, ‘What do we want the last scene of the series to be [and] what do we want that scene to evoke emotionally?’… [The] conversations started in a very abstract way and as they developed… sort of formed themselves into, ‘OK, we know what that last scene is — now, how are we going to get there?’”

Now, let’s just hope that we see the story conclude in a way in which would satisfy as many as possible, since it is almost surely impossible it will make everyone happy. What we learned from Lindelof here is that the show will feel very different in between the move to Australia, and the writers working with the knowledge that this will be the end of the show. This did cause them to make some different decisions than they probably would have otherwise if there was more time left.
