Premiere Date for HBO's THE LEFTOVERS Pushed Back Two Weeks
The debut date for The Leftovers has changed. The series begins its ten-episode season SUNDAY, JUNE 29 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on HBO. The series was originally slated to premiere on June 15.
Per Deadline, production went on hiatus earlier this month to "prep our final episodes." Production has yet to resume, and a start date hasn't been set.
From Damon Lindelof and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers is based on Perrotta's bestselling novel of the same name. The drama series takes an original look at The Rapture... because it's not entirely clear The Rapture happened.
Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka star. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner. Produced for HBO by Adventure Corps in association with Warner Bros. Television.
