Someone on the set of The Leftovers is trolling us with Justin Theroux’s abs. Theroux is currently filming the show’s last season in Austin and apparently, we’re going to be missing quite a lot when the HBO series finally goes off the air.
Theroux and his six-pack are reclining in bed for a shot that we can only hope makes it into the title credits, so we get to see this soothing shot again and again.

As E! Online reports, series creator Damon Lindelof decided to end the show after the third season in a nod to Tom Perotta’s books. “Tom, myself and our incredible team of writers and producers put tremendous care into designing those seasons as novels unto themselves… with beginnings, middles and ends,” he said in a statement. “As we finished our most recent season, it became clear to us that the series as a whole was following the same model… and with our beginning and middle complete, the most exciting thing for us as storytellers would be to bring The Leftovers to a definitive end.” In a world where HBO is letting Game of Thrones off the rails, we have to respect Lindelof’s measured artistic vision.
We trust that Theroux’s abs will live on, even when they’re not starring in their own HBO show.
