Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has added The Leftovers: The Complete First Season to its roster, bringing this intense and thought-provoking new HBO series to Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in October.
Based on the 2011 bestselling novel by Perrotta, “The Leftovers” is seen primarily through the eyes of police chief Kevin Garvey, played by Justin Theroux, as he experiences life post “the Departure.” After what can only be explained as an instance similar to the biblical rapture, the people of Mapleton, New York, are suddenly shaken to their core as many of their loved ones disappear into thin air. With roughly 140 million people actively missing — 2% of the world’s population — the world starts to question everyone and everything. Will people turn to cynicism, paranoia, and cult-like fanaticism, in order to survive? The eerie and thought-provoking series leaves viewers riveted, second-guessing theories from episode to episode.
The release will feature all 10 episodes that make up the show’s first season, along with a number of bonus materials. Among these supplements you will find an Audio Commentary for the show’s pilot episode, as well as one for the season finale.
The Featurettes ”Making The Leftovers,” “Secrets of the Guilty Remnant” and ” Beyond the Book: A Look Ahead at Season 2” will make up the core of the supplements, further complemented by a Conversation with Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta called ”I Remember”.
“The Leftovers” will be in stores on October 6 for $44.96 on Blu-Ray Disc and $39.98 on DVD.
