It seems The Disappearance TV series premiere has been cancelled by WGN America, at least for now. Back in May, the cable network announced the crime drama, which premiered on Canada’s CTV in October of 2017, would debut here in the States on July 12th. WGNA never announced a timeslot though, and when we checked its schedule, we found The Disappearance premiere has disappeared. The network’s show page currently states The Disappearance is coming in 2019, with a start date TBD.
A Canadian limited (or mini-) series, The Disappearance stars Peter Coyote, Camille Sullivan, Aden Young, Joanne Kelly, Michael Riendeau, and Micheline Lanctôt. The story follows a family as they hunt for the truth about what happened to their young son.
Here’s the official WGN America description of The Disappearance, from an earlier press release.
When Henry Sullivan (Peter Coyote) organizes a treasure hunt for his grandson Anthony’s (Michael Riendeau) tenth birthday, things take a turn for the worst when Anthony suddenly goes missing. “The Disappearance” follows Luke Sullivan (Aden Young) and Helen Murphy Sullivan (Camille Sullivan) as they delve into the all-consuming investigation of what happened to their son on that harrowing day. As the Sullivans and their extended kin grapple with the inexplicable mystery, deep familial secrets become uncovered and threaten to shatter the family unit.
