The Missing Renewed for Season 2

The Missing Renewed Season 2

Less than a week after it received a Golden Globes nod for Best Miniseries, The Missing has secured an order for another season at Starz.

The network announced the news Tuesday, adding that the eight-episode second installment of the crime drama will — True Detective fashion — follow new characters involved in a new case in a different location.

BBC One also has renewed the series, our sister site Deadline reports.

The British drama’s current season follows the sudden disappearance of a 5-year-old boy who goes missing while on vacation with his parents, played by James Nesbitt and Frances O’Connor. O’Connor also received a Globes nomination for the role.

Season 1 unfolds over two timelines: one immediately following the disappearance and one years later. Starz says Season 2 will use the same storytelling framework.

Harry and Jack Williams, who penned Season 1, will return to write Season 2.

The Missing‘s Season 1 finale airs Saturday, Jan. 10, on Starz.

    “True Detective fashion”…American Horror Story fashion, American Crime Story fashion, Fargo: The Animated Series fashion…

    The series concluded here in the UK last night. Personally satisfied with the ending, but seems to be a contentious issue amongst a lot of people!

  3. GhostWolf says:

    So much for the so-called ‘limited series.’ If a show does well, then they call it an anthology series and it continues on. Sigh.

    Anyhoo, from what I’ve seen about the finale and what happens, the bulk of comments indicate much dissatisfaction with the conclusion / resolution (won’t go into it any further to avoid spoilers).

    Is there a new season coming

  5. chris harmon says:

    I did not like the ending. I want to know if the boy is found–not just a hint that he is somewhere in Russia……is Season 2 going tell us anymore? From the article it sounds like not. I loved the series otherwise.

    • Kandis says:

      I agree Chris !! Hopefully they will read the comments and give us closure for Oliver’s case in episode 1 of season 2. If not I will not watch season 2 because we all deserve an ending / closure even if it is bad. And cliff hangers only work if you get closure !! We shall see

  6. Kandis says:

    Well I won’t watch season 2 til we have closure for season 1 hello… Is Oliver alive or dead does he get returned to his father or what ?? Do they find the body ?? I watched 8 episodes only to be left hanging and now u say season 2 will be new people a new missing case ?? Pls respond and the best thing would be to give us closure for S1 by having Olly be found and returned to his father then we can move forward with a new case and new people new location Thanks !!

    Please finish The Missing. The last part was when he was banging on the door & a older boy opened the door, while the police were stopping him from bothering the people in this small community. It did look like his son. Please finished with a happy ending.
