Starz announced today that the next chapter of the Golden Globe and Emmy nominated thriller series ‘The Missing’ will premiere on Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 8 pm. The 8-episode limited series will introduce a new case, location, and characters.
Produced by New Pictures in association with Two Brother Pictures, Starz, BBC One and Playground, the limited series is written by Harry and Jack Williams and directed by Ben Chanan.
“The anthology series follows parents Sam (David Morrissey (The Walking Dead)) and Gemma Webster (Keeley Hawes), whose daughter, Alice, went missing in 2003. Eleven years later, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and announces herself as Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), the girl who went missing over a decade prior. Alice’s sudden return causes ripples of suspicion through the small community, especially when it is revealed she may hold vital clues to the whereabouts of another missing girl, Sophie Giroux, who vanished shortly before Alice. Haunted by the unsolved Giroux case, French detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) is motivated out of retirement to follow new information that Alice may have on Sophie’s disappearance. Told across three timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, we follow Alice’s family as they are thrown into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams.”
The first installment premiered in 2014. It went on to receive an Emmy nominations and two Golden Globe nominations, as well as a nomination for the Critics’ Choice Award and four BAFTA Televilsion Awards.
