With a cast made up of Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Ann Dowd, Liv Tyler, Paterson Joseph, Janel Moloney and Carrie Coon, it promises to be a fascinating look at how they all deal with the ramifications of such an event if it were to take place in our world.
Of course, with Lost’s Damon Lindelof on writing duties with Tom Perrotta (who penned the novel that the series is based on), you just know that there will be more to it than meets the eye!
The Leftovers premieres in the US on June 29th, while a UK air date has yet to be revealed.
When 2% of the world’s population abruptly disappears without explanation, the world struggles to understand just what they’re supposed to do about it. The new drama series The Leftovers is the story of the people who didn’t make the cut. Based on the bestselling novel by Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers follows Kevin Garvey, a father of two and the chief of police in a small New York suburb, as he tries to maintain some semblance of normalcy when the notion no longer applies. The series is executive produced by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, together with Perrotta and Friday Night Lights executive producers Peter Berg and Sarah Aubrey. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner. Additional series regulars include: Amy Brenneman (“Private Practice”); Christopher Eccleston (“Thor: The Dark World”); Liv Tyler (“The Strangers,” “The Lord of the Rings”); Charlie Carver (“Desperate Housewives”); Max Carver (“Desperate Housewives”); Carrie Coon (“Gone Girl”); Ann Dowd (“Side Effects”); Michael Gaston (“The Mentalist”); Emily Meade (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”); Annie Q (“The Reluctant Professor”); Margaret Qualley; Amanda Warren (“The Adjustment Bureau”); and Chris Zylka (“The Amazing Spider-Man”).
