Will there be a third season of The Missing? Recently, creators Harry and Jack Williams spoke with Digital Spy about the future of the BBC TV show.
The anthology drama, which airs on Starz in the U.S., follows detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) as he solves cases of missing children. The cast also includes David Morrissey, Keeley Hawes, Jake Davies, Abigail Hardingham, Laura Fraser, and Roger Allam.
In the interview, Harry Williams revealed they are thinking of a Julien Baptiste spin-off:
We want to do something with Tcheky [Karyo, who plays Baptiste] again – we want to keep that character alive. I think we will revisit him in some form or another. … I’d be leaning towards a spin-off, personally. But God knows what any of the channels think.”
Later, Jack said they don’t want to make a third season of The Missing and have it be disappointing:
We were so pleased that people liked The Missing. You don’t want them to be like, ‘Oh, and then they made the third one and it was shit!’
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Missing? Would you watch a Julien Baptiste spin-off?
