From Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of the hit series Lost, and novelist Tom Perrotta, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings the thought-provoking new HBO series THE LEFTOVERS to Blu-ray and DVD for the first time 5th October, 2015.
Renewed for a second season, this enticing new series captivated audiences with one of HBO’s strongest premieres of 2014. The series averaged over 2.5 million total viewers and is the first Warner Bros. Television show ever to air on the HBO network.
With the stellar cast of Justin Theroux (Mulholland Drive), Amy Brenneman (Private Practice),Christopher Eccelston(Thor: The Dark World), Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings films), Chris Zylka (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Margaret Qualley (Palo Alto), Carrie Coon (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit), Emily Meade (Gimme Shelter), Amanda Warren (The Closer), Ann Dowd (Masters of Sex), Michael Gaston (The Mentalist),Max Carver(Desperate Housewives), Charlie Carver (Desperate Housewives) and Annie Q (Are We There Yet?), the series was created by Lindelof and Tom Perrotta (Little Children), with Lindelof, Perrotta, Peter Berg (Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights) and Sarah Aubrey (Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights) executive producing.
Based on the 2011 bestselling novel by Perrotta, The Leftovers is seen primarily through the eyes of police chief Kevin Garvey, played by Justin Theroux, as he experiences life post “the Departure.” After what can only be explained as an instance similar to the biblical rapture, the people of Mapleton, New York, are suddenly shaken to their core as many of their loved ones disappear into thin air. With roughly 140 million people actively missing — 2% of the world’s population — the world starts to question everyone and everything.
Will people turn to cynicism, paranoia, and cult-like fanaticism, in order to survive? The eerie and thought-provoking series will leave viewers riveted and second-guessing theories from episode to episode, when it comes to Blu-ray and DVD this autumn.
