The ABCs of the Sudden Departure

The Leftovers

In The Leftovers, 144 million people (2% of Earth’s population) vanish in a rapture-like event known as “The Sudden Departure”. Cue chaos, inexplicably twisted behaviors, and heavy emotional baggage.

To explain this premise to a completely new audience for the launch of Season 1, we teamed up with illustrator Pablo Bernasconi and showrunner Damon Lindelof to present the strange, new reality as simply as we could – in the form of a children’s ABC book.
