The much anticipated third season of the “The Leftovers” will also be its last causing pandemonium from loyal followers of the show. Fan favorite Nora, who is played by Carrie Coon, recently shared her thoughts on what the future holds for her character, as well as where the overall narrative of the show will take its viewers.
“What’s appealing is how incredibly tough Nora is,” Coon said in an interview with The Wrap. “That’s really fun to do. Her anger and emotions aren’t about a man they’re grounded in something else in the world, which actresses rarely get to do.”
Among the slew of grieving and lost characters in “The Leftovers,” Nora arguably is one of the easiest to connect to given how she chooses to cope with the situation at hand. And the way Coon portrays her gives raw and intense mixed feelings about how to deal with the new arc that her life is heading to.
“It’s so thrilling to be invited to do it. She’s not consistent, she’s very inconsistent. I think she’s very dangerous, even still,” the actress added.
Meanwhile, co-creator Damon Lindelof previously stated that fans should no longer hope for any explanation as to where all the Departed are or what happened to them, as the show is not inclined in ruining the mystery. Instead, “The Leftovers'” last season will continue to cover the lives of those who have stayed and how they are continuing to live their lives following disappearance of 2 percent of the world’s population.
“More than anything else, I want to approach the ending of ‘The Leftovers’ with confidence,” he explained separately to The Hollywood Reporter. “Even if we fall flat on our faces and everybody hates it, it’s better than hedging or trying to be all things to all people or saying we’re going to be one thing and then at the last minute basically cut bait and be another thing,” he said. “People want consistency in the storytelling.”
No official return date for the “The Leftovers” season 3 has been determined but fans can expect it to be available on HBO next year.
