Created by Gaia Violo and Matt Cirulnick, Absentia centers on Emily Byrne (played by Katic), an FBI agent who, while hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers, disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, Emily 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 (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce‘s Patrick Heusinger) has remarried and her son (Patrick McCauley) is being raised by another woman (Downton Abbey‘s Cara Theobold), she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.

The series’ ensemble cast also includes Angel Bonanni (Shots Fired), Richard Brake (Ray Donovan), Neil Jackson (Sleepy Hollow), Ralph Ineson (Game of Thrones), Paul Freeman (Da Vinci’s Demons) and Bruno Bichir (The Bridge).

“We couldn’t be more proud of Absentia, a show that underscores SPTN’s commitment to creating and distributing provocative and entertaining content that speaks to viewers both here and abroad,” Sony Pictures Television Networks president Andy Kaplan said in a statement. “We are thrilled that Absentia has found a home on so many of our AXN channels and we look forward to working closely with all of our distribution partners to present this compelling and character-driven drama to fans worldwide.”
