HBO announced today that The Leftovers has been renewed for a third and final season. The drama recently concluded a sophomore run that saw it lose half its viewers from Season 1 despite garnering higher critical praise.

“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 HBO programming president Michael Lombardo in a statement. “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.”

Loo for Season 3 of The Leftovers to premiere in 2016.
