HBO RENEWS THE LEFTOVERS FOR A THIRD AND FINAL SEASON

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10, 2015 – HBO has renewed the critically acclaimed drama series THE LEFTOVERS for a third and final season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Created by Damon Lindelof (Emmy® winner for "Lost") and Tom Perrotta (Academy Award® nominee for "Little Children"), the series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television.

"It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome back Damon Lindelof, Tom Perrotta and the extraordinary talent behind THE LEFTOVERS for its third and final season," said Lombardo. "This show has proven to be one of the most distinctive HBO series and we are extremely proud of its unrivaled originality, which has resulted in such a passionate following by our HBO viewers. We admire and fully support Damon's artistic vision and respect his decision to bring the show to its conclusion next season."

"I have never, ever experienced the level of creative support and trust that I have received from HBO during the last two seasons of THE LEFTOVERS," says Damon Lindelof. "Tom, myself and our incredible team of writers and producers put tremendous care into designing those seasons as novels unto themselves…with beginnings, middles and ends. As we finished our most recent season, it became clear to us that the series as a whole was following the same model…and with our beginning and middle complete, the most exciting thing for us as storytellers would be to bring THE LEFTOVERS to a definitive end. And by 'definitive,' we mean 'wildly ambiguous but hopefully mega-emotional,' as all things related to this show are destined to be.

"On behalf of our incredible crew and superb cast, we are all tremendously grateful that HBO is giving us an opportunity to conclude the show on our own terms…an opportunity like this one rarely comes along, and we have every intention of living up to it. One more thing. We are blessed by the unwavering support of our fans and the incredibly powerful voice of the critical community. We feel absolutely privileged to heat up one last helping of leftovers."

The bastard executioner canceled by FX, No Season 2

variaty reported

Sutter and FX Networks CEO John Landgraf had a candid conversation recently that sealed the decision about the show.

"The numbers just didn't sustain the cost of the show, quite frankly," Sutter said. "It's all math at the end of the day. We couldn't establish that core audience that allows you to figure out your advertising paradigm and whether or not the show is affordable."

Sutter is putting his money where is mouth is via an ad running in the Nov. 24 edition of Variety, among other outlets, thanking the "Bastard" cast and crew for their hard work. He also gives a shoutout to Imagine Television, which produced the series with 20th Century Fox TV's Fox 21 banner, numerous Fox execs and Landgraf, among others.

"I have been awed by the talent and commitment of this 'TBX' cast and crew," Sutter states in the ad. "The audience has spoken and unfortunately the word is, 'meh.' So with due respect, we bring our mythology to an epic and fiery close."

Sutter said the experience of detaching from Hollywood to produce a period drama in a remote part of England was exhilarating, enlightening and by the end, a little emotional.

"I love this cast and crew so much," Sutter said. "They're primarily British actors. They have a different mentality about the work. They're not plugged into the numbers or worried about 'Do I have a job?' They're so used to be journeymen. They were there to do the work. By the finale the whole cast and crew had bonded and everyone was so excited about this show and the mythology. And by that time I already knew it wasn't coming back. It was heartbreaking for me."
