From Damon Lindelof, co-creator of the hit series Lost, and based on characters introduced in the bestselling 2011 novel by Tom Perrotta (a co-creator and EP), this one-hour HBO drama focuses on erstwhile residents of a New York town trying to make sense of a global event dubbed “The Departure,” in which 2% of the world’s population were “taken” (i.e., vanished) while others were left behind.
The third and final season, which takes place four years after events in Season 2 and nearly seven years since The Departure, finds the Garvey and Murphy families – who met, clashed and bonded last season in the “Miracle” town of Jarden, Texas – coming together as they desperately grasp for systems of belief to help better explain that which defies explanation. As we’ll learn, the world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen: a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their final journey Down Under for an improbable, and thrilling, series climax.
Cast regulars for season two include: Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka, Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Janel Moloney. Created by Damon Lindelof, Emmy® winner for “Lost,” and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta; executive produced by Lindelof, Perrotta, Mimi Leder, Tom Spezialy and Peter Berg; co-executive produced by Jacqueline Hoyt, Gene Kelly, Ron Yerxa & Albert Berger.
