The Leftovers Series Premiere – New Series Premieres Tuesday, January 13th
In an international cataclysm, “The Sudden Disappearance,” 140 million individuals worldwide disappeared without a trace. Three years later, ordinary people of Mapleton, N.Y. struggle to retain sanity when the idea of “normal” suddenly no longer applies, as the very idea of “home” vanishes. Kevin Garvey, a devastated police chief, has to maintain peace between the townsfolk and the notorious Cult, which operate out of a compound known as The Sanctuary.
Like its contemporary, The Leftovers, “The Leftovers Series” revolves around the fundamental concept of resurrection. The Leftovers was inspired by the book, The Door by Stephen King, which concerned the sanctity of human life after death. The Leftovers Series chronicles the trials of a family in the aftermath of a traumatic event. The Leftovers Series premiere attracted a large audience during its first season, but it was critically acclaimed later for including multiple characters.
The Leftovers was created by Greg Garcia, who also created the short-lived Counterparts series. The Leftovers chronicles the journey of newlyweds Oliver and JoAnne, who decide to have a baby rather than expand their family. The pregnancy does not go well and Oliver meets with a violent death. The couple’s daughter, Patty, returns home only to find that her mother has disappeared. She thinks she knows where she is but cannot remember anything else, or identify her own mother.
The Leftovers Story Line (Emotional)
The series picks up with JoAnne, still missing her wife, after she catches a bus in the woods. The two reunite only to discover that her wife had been brutally murdered. She then begins to suffer from amnesia, forgetting her name and where she came from. The mystery that follows leaves both the viewer and the characters in suspense.
The Leftovers series was renewed for a second season by ABC in May of 2021. The Leftovers is the third scripted comedy series launched by ABC in as many years. The Leftovers has featured guest stars such as Matthew McConaughey, George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Chris Rock, and several others. The new series premiere of The Leftovers will debut on Tuesday, January 13th.
