TWO PERCENT OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION HAS DISAPPEARED!
Was it the Rapture? A mass murder? Cult suicides? Aliens?
Based on Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel, The Leftovers follows Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), police chief and father of two in Mapletown, New York, three years after the mysterious event. As Garvey struggles to grieve for his losses, rebuild his life, and regain a sense of normalcy within the community, the world around him grows ever stranger.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman calls “this bold series…a triumph for Tom Perrotta and [Lost co-creator] Damon Lindelof, plus so many superb actors in the ensemble.” Don’t be left out!
This one-hour drama focuses on a suburban town whose preconceptions are shattered after a global event dubbed “The Departure” (which may or may not have been the Biblical “rapture”), in which 140 million people—2% of the world’s population—disappeared without a trace. Seen primarily through the eyes of a beleaguered police chief, the series shows how ordinary people react to the inexplicable.
