The Leftovers' Final Season Cast Revealed: Who's In? Who's Out?
Amid reports that Damon Lindelof’s acclaimed HBO drama will shoot its third and final season in Australia, TVLine has learned exclusively that nearly the entire ensemble is returning — with one notable exception.
First, let’s address who’s back. Returning cast members include leads Justin Theroux and Carrie Coon, as well as supporting players Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Margaret Qualley, Chris Zylka and Janel Moloney. Additionally, Season 2’s entire Murphy clan — i.e. Regina King, Kevin Carroll, Jovan Adepo and Jasmin Savoy-Brown — is set for Season 3. Also back in a big way: Scott Glenn, who has been bumped up to series regular. Glenn recurred in Seasons 1 and 2 as the father of Theroux’s Kevin Garvey. (Savoy-Brown has also been upped to a regular after guest-starring in Season 2.)
And now for the decidedly smaller list of who won’t be returning. TVLine has learned that Ann Dowd, whose Patti Levin played a major role in Season 2 despite being killed off in Season 1, will not be back as a regular. Of course, it’s entirely possible Patti (who was successfully exorcised from Kevin’s psyche in Season 2) could return to haunt our tortured antihero as a guest star.
