Those anticipating Damon Lindelof’s small screen series ‘The Leftovers’ will have to wait a little bit longer.
HBO just pushed back the premiere date by two weeks, meaning it will now debut Sunday, June 29, rather than the previously scheduled premiere date of June 15.

The drama from Lindelof, who’s responsible for ABC’s hit and mysterious series ‘Lost,’ focuses on life after what seems to be the biblical Rapture. Approximately 140 million people disappear, leaving those left behind (aka “the leftovers”) to deal with the aftermath and preparing for what’s to come.
Based on Tom Perrotta’s 2011 novel of the same name, the cast is full of familiar faces, including Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka.
To hold you over until the series’ debut, check out this teaser. As you can see, it offers up more questions than answers, so I guess that means we’ll have to tune in to the premiere. For ‘Breaking Bad’ fans, it’s even narrated with Walt Whitman quotes.

Also, if you’re a ‘Game of Thrones’ fan (really, who isn’t?), the first trailer for ‘The Leftovers’ will air this Sunday before a new episode of ‘GoT.’
‘The Leftovers’ premieres Sunday, June 29 at 10/9c on HBO.
