Damon Lindelof series looks at life after the rapture — or what seems to be the rapture
HBO has pushed back the debut date of Damon Lindelof's “The Leftovers” by two weeks. The series, based on the novel by Tom Perrotta, will now debut Sunday, June 29 instead of June 15.
The drama examines life after what seems to be the biblical rapture — though it's uncertain it really was the rapture. HBO said the new premiere date was necessitated by changes in the production schedule.
The cast includes 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.
Lindelof serves as the showrunner of the series, which is produced for HBO by Adventure Corps in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The first trailer for the series will air on HBO this Sunday prior to a new episode of “Game of Thrones.”
