Justin Theroux as Kevin Garvey one last time on The Leftovers!
The season finale of critically acclaimed series ‘The Leftovers’ airs in India this Wednesday, August 23rd at 10 PM on Star World & Star World HD
How do you end a series that started off as a mega blockbuster? Make it a masterpiece. That’s exactly what the third and final season of The Leftovers has come to look like. And the critically acclaimed and star-studded show comes to an end with the much anticipated season finale which will air in India thisWednesday, August 23rd at 10 PM on Star World & Star World HD.
Based on the book of the same name by Tom Perrotta, The Leftovers starts three years after a global event called the ‘Sudden Departure’ – an inexplicable, simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, 2% of the world's population. Following this event, the mainstream religions start to see a decline and cults start emerging, most notably the Guilty Remnant – an organization that was formed after The Sudden Departure whose members are self-proclaimed to be ‘Living Reminders’.
Now, in its third and final season, the show traveled to the ‘land down under’ – Australia and revolves around a time that marks the seventeenth anniversary of The Sudden Departure and citizens believing that yet another apocalyptic event is in the offing. Kevin's father is trying to stop a flood he thinks will end the world on the seventh anniversary of the Departure, and Kevin is haunted by his visions once again.
The season 3 of the series has won hearts of the critics who described the ultimate season as the best concluding chapter to a television series in recent memory, while Variety called it out as amiraculous series that masterfully holds ambiguity and extremely robust storytelling in the same generous bear hug.
The excellent and gut-retching performances by the series cast featuring Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon in the lead roles along with some superb directing from the likes of Mimi Leder and Craig Zobel have ended the series on that perfect note. After three seasons and 27 episodes, The Leftovers is finally down to its final hour!
Catch this enthralling season finale only on Star World and Star World HD on August 23rd, 10 PM.
