The end is nigh. HBO has released the first teaser for The Leftovers Season 3 featuring Justin Theroux reprising his role as Kevin Garvey. In addition, Carrie Coon teases what fans can expect in the dystopian drama’s third and final run.
The End is Near in The Leftovers
On Monday, Theroux announced the premiere date of The Leftovers Season 3. The actor posted a short video on Instagram to announce that the show will return on April 16 on HBO. He added the caption: “The end is near. And we know the date.”
A few moments later, HBO released a longer teaser that showed the cast of the mystery-thriller looking up at the sky. It also warned about the impending end to the tune of Don’t Worry Baby by The Beach Boys. Watch the teaser below.
Hopefully, before April 16, the cable network will release a full trailer for the third and final season. This promo does not exactly say what Garvey will find in Australia. But, in true The Leftovers fashion, it dropped hints as to what is about to come.
Show creator Damon Lindelof revealed that Kevin will head to Australia to follow his father. However, what initially was planned as a visit turned out to be a longer stay across the pacific when he inevitably gets dragged into the mysteries. Moreover, the screenwriter explained that not all characters will take the journey from Texas to Australia.
A Little Tune
Meanwhile, Carrie Coon (Nora Durst) revealed that the third and final season of The Leftovers might not be too heartbreaking and heavy. In an interview with TV Line, the actress teased that there is going to be lighter, funnier moments in the third installment of the drama. For one, the characters will have a “greater appreciation for the absurdity of life,” she stated.
“I used to joke with Damon that by the time we got to Season 3 we’d be making a sitcom,” she recalled. She added that, “maybe we did. And that’s all I’ll say about that.”
