Missing, The

A complex, delicate narrative drives “The Missing,” a dramatic thriller taking place in two countries and at several times.

Season I: When five-year-old Oliver Hughes disappears while on holiday in France, it sets off a manhunt that will last for years to come. The Missing, a Starz Limited Series, is a gripping dramatic thriller that takes you inside the mind of a father, Tony, desperate to locate his lost son. With help from a local detective, Tony embarks on an obsessive quest to find his son and those responsible for his disappearance. A riveting puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, Tony’s exhaustive search fractures his relationship with his wife Emily and threatens to destroy his life. Told through a delicate and complex narrative, The Missing unfolds over two time frames simultaneously.

Season II: David Morrissey and Keeley Hawes will show all the stages of grief as Sam and Gemma, the mother and father of a missing daughter. But The Missing will change things up this time around. The dual-timeline structure will still be in effect, looking at 2003 and 2014, but in Season 2, Sam and Gemma’s daughter Alice – now in her 20s – who was missing for 11 years, will reappear in Germany. Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo), the detective from Season 1, will return to help Sam and Gemma through the case.
