HBO orders Rapture series 'The Leftovers'

Three years after the end of "Lost," Damon Lindelof is heading back to TV with a new series titled "The Leftovers."

HBO announced Monday that it had ordered a 10-episode first season of the series, to be run by Lindelof, the co-creator and co-showrunner of the classic ABC fantasy adventure series.

While the series, based on the novel by Tom Perotta, has a fantasy bent to it, this one won't have the flavor of island adventure.
