About a week ago the first teaser trailer for the upcoming new HBO drama The Leftovers was released. It didn’t show a whole lot, but gave a hint at what we can expect from the series.
A second teaser for the show has now been released, and it too is a teaser. While also short, the newest trailer offers up a lot more to look at if you’re still trying to decide whether or not to give it a watch when it premieres on June 15th.
It was back in September that were found out that HBO had committed to an entire season of The Leftovers, the new drama from LOST co-creator and co-showrunner Damon Lindelof. Now the first teaser trailer has been released online.
The show, for those who are unfamiliar with it, is based on the book of the same name by author Tom Perrotta, and tells the story of those who were left behind after the “Sudden Departure”—an event very similar to the Bible’s Rapture—and how they cope and move forward after many people they know and love disappear.
You can check out the first teaser trailer for The Leftovers below.
Justin Theroux has been cast as the lead in the pilot for The Leftovers, a potential new HBO series from LOST co-creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof.
The Leftovers is based on the book of the same name by author Tom Perrotta, and takes place in a world after the Rapture (or as it’s known in the book, the “Sudden Departure”) has happened, and things are—as you might imagine—not nearly the same as they once were.
