Absentia centers on an FBI agent Emily Byrne, (Stana Katic) who, while hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband (Heusinger) has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman, she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.
Amazon Renews 'Absentia' Amazon announced today that Absentia has been picked up for Season 2. The crime thriller premiered on the streaming service earlier this year with 10 episodes that garnered mixed reviews from critics.
Today's good news should please fans who have been awaiting word on the show's fate in the U.S., as it has been over two months since it was renewed by Canada's Showcase for audiences up north.
Look for Season 2 of Absentia to premiere in 2019 on Amazon Prime Video.
