Carrie Coon is sounding very confident that you’re going to like the series finale of HBO’s The Leftovers.
The eight-episode, third-and-final season - which transitions the bulk of the drama’s action from Texas to Australia - benefits from its shorter length, she says.
“Because we only had eight episodes, the pace of the show is quite changed,” the actress reveals. “I hope people enjoy that momentum. It’s still contemplative, but also explosive and very character driven. And Australia is very much a character in the piece.”
And the ending? While fans know not to expect much in the way of answers to the show’s mythological questions (showrunner Damon Lindelof has braced us on that front), Coon says that the ending is not frustrating either.
“I can say, that as the actor playing Nora, that I found it satisfying,” she says. “It felt like an organic conclusion to me. You’ll never please everyone, of course, and I look forward to reading the reactions - the praise and the criticism. I’m sure we’ll get some of both.”
Coon can also be seen another third season of another upcoming acclaimed cable drama series - FX’s Fargo.
The Leftovers returns Sunday, April 16. Watch the latest trailer below.
