Fans got an early Christmas gift a couple of weeks ago, after it was announced that "The Leftovers" was renewed for another season. However, it was bittersweet since it was revealed that season 3 is also the final season of the series. With things now coming to an end for the people of Miracle, Texas, fans wonder what will happen next to Kevin and the others in the show's last season.
According to Indiewire, the announcement of "The Leftovers" renewal was made by Michael Lombardo, HBO network's president, last Dec. 10. "This show has proven to be one of the most distinctive HBO series and we are extremely proud of its unrivaled originality, which has resulted in such a passionate following by our HBO viewers," he said.
The show's creator, Damon Lindelof, also made an announcement about the next season, and Lindelof said that the upcoming season will bring a "mega-emotional ending." During his interview with Variety, Lindelof was asked whether viewers would see the Garveys move again, just like what they did in the previous season. He said, "There's a part of me that's like, 'Well, it worked once. Let's do it again! Let's go to Australia.' There's another part of me that's basically like, 'You can't do the same trick twice.'" Fans can't wait to see if all of the Garveys, or at least some of them, will indeed move to Australia once the show comes back next year.
Lindelof also jokingly teased if Kevin (Justin Theroux) will beat Kenny's (South Park) record in having the most number of times of being resurrected from the dead next season. Kevin had died and but was resurrected from the dead twice during the last season, and fans wonder if they'll see him in purgatory again in season 3. It will also be interesting to see if the show will take another shot at the same trick they've done with Kevin this season.
No official date for the third season of "The Leftovers" has been released yet, but it will be back around fall of 2016.
