Accompanied by a neon cross bearing the words “The End Is Near,” Theroux unveiled the motion poster on his Instagram feed Tuesday morning. HBO had previously announced “The Leftovers” would return in April, via a cheeky video of co-creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta dressed up in Guilty Remnant gear. Perhaps in a nod to the previous announcement and certainly in reference to the smoking antagonists of the series, Theroux accompanied his announcement with a cigarette emoji.
