Limited Series (Second Installment)
“One of TV’s most gripping thrillers, “The Missing” returns with a new case, new characters and a new location. The series follows Sam and Gemma played by David Morrissey (“The Walking Dead,” “Extant”) and Keeley Hawes (“Line of Duty,” “The Casual Vacancy,” “The Durrells”), whose daughter Alice went missing in 2003. In 2014, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Her name is Alice Webster, played by newcomer Abigail Hardingham (Nina Forever), and she has been missing for 11 years. Alice’s return sends shockwaves through the small community. Told in dual timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, we follow Alice’s family as they are thrown back into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams. When French missing person’s detective, Julien Baptiste, played by Tchéky Karyo (Goldeneye, The Patriot), races across Europe to pursue a 12-year-old case that he never let die, we begin to explore the murky morality and emotional complexity of what happens when the missing child you’ve been longing to return actually comes back. The cast also includes Roger Allam (“Endeavour,” “Tamara Drewe”), Laura Fraser (“Breaking Bad,” “Peter & Wendy,” “One of Us”), Anastasia Hille (Snow White and the Huntsman, “Prey”), Lia Williams (“The Crown,” “The Foreigner”), Jake Davies (“X + Y,” “Yen”), Florian Bartholomäi (“Deutschland 83,” Smaragdgrün, “Tatort-Taxi nach Leipzig”), Daniel Ezra (“Murdered by My Boyfriend,” Blood Cells).”
