The HBO series The Leftovers, created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, aired over three seasons between 2014 – 2017 all of which were scored by Max Richter.
Based on Perrotta’s novel of the same name, the series centres around the Garvey family following the “Sudden Departure” of 2% of the world’s population. In the series, this inexplicable, simultaneous disappearance of 140 million people, inspired the formation of the religious organization The Guilty Remnant to live as ‘Living Reminders’ eliciting conflict and friction with the local residents of Mapleton.
‘…another glorious entry into the burgeoning canon of this masterful composer.’
