EXCLUSIVE: Damon Lindelof‘s upcoming 10-episode HBO series The Leftovers is taking a break. The high-concept drama, Lindelof’s follow-up series to Lost, will shut down production for a brief hiatus after it wraps production on the current sixth episode. “We put ourselves on a tight schedule, and we decided to give our production a short hiatus to prep our final episodes,” HBO said in a statement. The stoppage, said to be for less than two weeks, is not expected to impact the premiere date for the series HBO announced last week. It is set for June 15, following the season finale of Game of Thrones. Co-written by Lindelof and Tom Perrotta based on Perrotta’s book and toplined by Justin Theroux, The Leftovers takes place after the Rapture happens, but not quite like it’s supposed to. It’s the story of the people who didn’t make the cut — and a world that never will be the same. Here is the first teaser for the show, which debuted at the top of the fourth season premiere of GOT this past Sunday.
