Great news for anyone (myself included) who enjoyed the hell out of The Leftovers’ innovative and consistently surprising second season, which just wrapped up on Sunday: it’s been renewed for a third and final season.
WHOA. There’s only one episode of The Leftovers to go after “Ten Thirteen,” and man oh man did things just take an unexpected turn. After last week’s Kevin-in-purgatory detour, we’re back in Miracle—where real miracles may or may not happen, but epic manipulation most certainly does.

Kevin and John form an uneasy alliance, but top fun-couple honors go to Kevin and Patti, his foul-mouthed, supernatural sidekick.
So far The Leftovers’ second season has been about Kevin Garvey and his ragtag family’s life after leaving Mapleton. But episode three, “Off Ramp,” catches us up on the other Garveys: Laurie and Tommy, whose respective exits from cult life have left them with plenty of lingering scars.

This is an interesting move: a soft reboot for a show being done in for the second season. To fix what are presumably problems that worry the studio and/or the executive producers, season two of The Leftovers is going to have a new location and a lot of new cast members, basically keeping the premise and starting…
The Apocalypse rules pop culture. Half the biggest literary novels these days are apocalyptic, and meanwhile The Walking Dead is a huge hit. Post-apocalyptic stories are what space opera was in the Space Age. But what are they about? Here are 10 types of apocalypses, and what they each signify.
Well, then. After a slowly burning season, The Leftovers exploded, throwing Mapleton into complete chaos while reshuffling its disparate characters. But where will all these changes really leave the Garvey family?
