Starz initially described The Missing as a mini-series. Then, despite very poor ratings, they picked it up for a second season which will focus on a new case and different characters. Should they have cancelled this series instead? Will the already small audience stick around to see the end of this season? Stay tuned.
On The Missing, a father (James Nesbitt) embarks on an obsessive quest to find his long missing son. It damages his marriage and threatens to destroy his life as well. The cast also includes Frances O’Connor, Tchéky Karyo, Jason Flemyng, Ken Stott, Diana Quick, Arsher Ali, Titus De Voogdt, Saïd Taghmaoui, Anastasia Hille, Oliver Hunt, Jean-François Wolff, Eric Godon, Émilie Dequenne, Anamaria Marinca, and Johan Leysen.
