THE LEFTOVERS Finally Gets a Full, Semi-NSFW Trailer

After varying, stunted glances at Damon Lindelof’s new HBO series, The Leftovers, the network finally unveiled a new, full-length trailer on Sunday night and, hoo boy, does this look like a terribly exciting and unsettling one. Not that we’d really expect anything less from the co-creator of Lost.

Premiering Sunday, June 29th and based on the Tom Perrotta novel of the same name, The Leftovers follows a group of (fortunate? unfortunate?) folks three years after over 100 people disappeared in a Rapture-style mystery from their small, suburban town without a trace. But they weren’t the only ones: Two percent of the entire world’s population was proverbially scooped up, leaving shambles and uncertainty in their wake. Turns out no one’s really all that happy about it, and people young and old are acting out because of it. There’s even a creepy, silent cult dressed all in white! Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston, Chris Zylka, Ann Dowd, Liv Tyler, Michael Gaston, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Emily Meade, Amanda Warren, and Margaret Qually star.

It should be noted that the trailer is pretty NSFW, unless you work from home or have a boss that’s OK with a little on-screen nudity and sexytimes. Because this series isn’t on TV — it’s on HBO! — all of those things and more are in no short supply in the video. Take a peek:

What would you do if you were left behind following the Rapture? Let us hear it in the comments.
