Before the third and final season of HBO’s “The Leftovers” debuts April 16, click through our photo gallery above that ranks every episode from worst to best, according to their IMDB scores. Can you guess what’s #1? We’ll be back to update this gallery at the end of “The Leftovers” Season 3.
“The Leftovers,” based on the book of the same name by Tom Perrotta, is the story of what happens three years after the disappearance of 2% of the global population. In Season 1, a group of people from New York struggle with their daily lives and try to cope with the tragedy. Season 2 sees most of the characters moved to Jarden, Texas, a place which did not have a disappearance. Season 3, as previously announced, will take place in Australia.
While the show has been a critical hit, it has gone unnoticed by the Emmys. But with “Game of Thrones” taking the eligibility period off as it will not air until July, HBO moved “The Leftovers” into its time slot with “Silicon Valley” and “Veep” airing directly after. Hopefully, the savvy move will help the show receive the awards attention it so richly deserves.
The Emmys may have ignored its first two seasons, but the Critics’ Choice Television Awards nominated the show for both years. In 2014, they nominated “The Leftovers” for Most Exciting New Series. In 2015, the critics honored it with bids for Best Drama Supporting Actor (Christopher Eccleston) and Best Drama Supporting Actress (Carrie Coon).
In 2016, the Critics’ Choice TV Awards nominated “The Leftovers” for several trophies, including Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actor (Justin Theroux), Best Drama Supporting Actor (Eccleston), Best Drama Supporting Actress (Anna Dowd and Regina King), and it won the award for Best Drama Actress (Coon).
