Stana Katic’s Absentia Season 2 Renewed

stana-katic-img Absentia has been renewed for Season 2 and is currently in production in Sofia, Bulgaria.Amazon Video will stream the Season.

The series, also executive-produced by Castle alum Katic, centers on FBI agent Emily Byrne, who in Season 1 returned to the living after being declared dead while hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers.

In the 10-episode Season 2, having tracked down and killed her abductor, Emily struggles for a tenuous new normal with son Flynn and ex-husband Nick (played by Patrick Heusinger). Her obsessive investigation into the questions that haunt her uncovers a serial killer and a spiraling conspiracy that threatens more than just her family.

New cast members for Season 2 include Matthew Le Nevez (Australia’s Offspring) as Cal Isaac, a rugged ex-Navy SEAL who is all too familiar with the demons that chase Emily (and thus proves to be a loyal and sympathetic counterpart), and  Natasha Little (The Night Manager) as Julianne Gunnarsen, an accomplished FBI profiler who joins the ranks of the Boston Field Office after a deadly terrorist attack rocks the city.

Season 2 of Absentia will premiere sometime in 2019.
