There is no more waiting to know when the end will be here — or at least the end when it comes to “The Leftovers.”
In a new post on Instagram, series star Justin Theroux confirmed that the third and final season of the HBO drama is going to be premiering on Sunday, April 16 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. This news was accompanied by a short teaser that is certainly artistic and heavy on the religious symbolism; however, it does not do a whole lot in terms of telling you what’s going to be coming up with the story of the show.
Here’s what we know about season 3 so far (as a warning, it is fairly scant): We’re going to see the story open with Theroux’s Kevin Garvey in Texas with his wife Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), and the will be looking to try to make Jarden the best place it can possibly be — so far, this place has went from a miracle to a nightmare in a relatively short period of time. Eventually, we will see the family head to Australia due to a scheme that may involve Kevin’s father, who is set to have an increased role in the final eight episodes ahead. Beyond this, we’ve got question marks aplenty beyond the new photo of Theroux as Kevin above. What we do know is this: We’re more excited for the series than ever before. Season 2 of the show was a breathtaking revelation, one defined by extraordinary performances and writing. It’s one of our favorite seasons of any show in a rather-long time.
In other words, no pressure, Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta. We know that you’re not giving us any answers in terms of what caused the Departure, but there’s hope for a fantastic endgame nonetheless.
