What’s next for The Missing? Recently, series creators Harry and Jack Williams spoke to Digital Spy about the future of the Starz TV series.
The anthology drama explores a new case about a missing child every season. The season two cast includes David Morrissey, Keeley Hawes, Abigail Hardingham, and Tchéky Karyo.
In the interview, the creators said there might not be a third season:
“I think it’s possible… there might not be one. There’s Godfather I and Godfather II… and third ones are really hard to get right. The second one’s hard, but the third one’s even harder and you don’t want to leave a bad taste in the mouth.”
However, they did mention there is a possibility for a Julien Baptiste spin-off series:
But we still don’t want to say goodbye to Julien (Tcheky Karyo) – both the actor and the character is someone we want in our lives in some form or another. It just may take quite a bit of time before we figure out what that is.
“Is there a world where Baptiste comes back in his own show and it’s not The Missing? We haven’t decided at all, but I think if we found the right form to get us excited again, we’d do it.”
Season two of The Missing debuts on Starz on February 12th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
What do you think? Have you seen The Missing? Would you want a third season?
I’d love more but agree with the creators it would be hard to create a third scenario as good as the first two. It might be better to have a show focusing on Baptiste acting as a retired consultant being brought in on cold cases or new cases.
