It’s been a good long while since we’ve heard from HBO’s forthcoming Damon Lindelof-helmed pilot ‘The Leftovers,’ but thankfully the premium cable rapture hasn’t left us behind. HBO has officially ordered the Liv Tyler-Justin Theroux starring drama to series, the deal marking the network’s first major production with an outside studio, but when might fans expect to see ‘The Leftovers’ on their plate?

Headed by actor/screenwriter Theroux, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ follows those left behind on Earth after the biblical Rapture — those not chosen to be taken up to Heaven. The people of the small town must begin to rebuild their lives after the sudden and mysterious disappearance of over 100 people. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot will be directed by Peter Berg.

Also among the cast are the aforementioned Liv Tyler, Christopher Eccleston, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd,  Amanda Warren,  Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph, Brad Leland, ‘Private Practice‘ vet Amy Brenneman and ‘Fringe‘ star Emily Meade. The 10-episode order marks HBO’s first official buy from an outside studio, while deals for Ryan Murphy‘s ‘Open‘ and J.J. Abrams‘ ‘Westworld‘ remain on the line.

No word yet on when exactly ‘The Leftovers’ would premiere, though 2014 seems like a safe bet. Tell us in the comments if you’ll sign on for HBO’s rapturous new series ‘The Leftovers,’ as brought by our former ‘LOST‘ showrunner!
