Plot Synopsis

ABSENTIA is a one-hour scripted series that centers on an FBI agent who disappears without a trace while hunting a serial killer. After years of assuming FBI Agent Emily Byrne was a possible victim of serial killer Conrad Harlow, she is miraculously returned to her family. Emily, however, has to struggle with the mysteries of her captivity and the fact that everyone has moved on without her. Emily's alleged serial killer, Conrad Harlow, is being released from jail, and Emily has not come close to solving the mystery of her kidnapping and time in captivity. As Emily struggles to return to normal life, a witness turns up and reinforces the suspicions of Emily. Emily denies the suspicions and is sure the witness is lying and was forced into making a false statement. When the testifying witness against Emily is murdered, all signs suggest that the murder was committed by Emily. While Tommy Gibbs and the Boston Police Chief are accusing Emily, she and Nick look for an FBI agent who forced the witness to lie. For Emily, there is suspicion that this agent is the one responsible for her abduction. ABSENTIA had its U.S. premiere on Friday, February 2, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Amazon released the 10-episode first season.

On Thursday, September 13, 2018 Amazon Prime Video announced that it has picked up thriller ABSENTIA for a second season, set to debut in 2019 exclusively on Prime Video in the U.S., as well as in select markets globally, including Australia, Austria, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea, Turkey and the U.K. In Season 2, after tracking down and killing her abductor, Emily (Stana Katic) struggles for a tenuous new normal with son Flynn and ex-husband Nick. But her obsessive investigation into the questions that haunt her uncovers a serial killer and a spiraling conspiracy that threatens more than just her family. New cast members joining season two include Matthew Le Nevez and Natasha Little. Le Nevez will portray the character Cal Isaac, a rugged ex-Navy SEAL with a disarmingly upbeat disposition. Cal's familiar with the demons that chase Emily and proves to be a loyal and sympathetic counterpart to the series heroine. Little will portray the character of Special Agent Julianne Gunnarsen, an accomplished, enigmatic and beautiful FBI Profiler with a chilly efficiency who joins the ranks of the Boston FBI Field Office after a deadly terrorist attack rocks the city. Patrick Heusinger returns for Season 2 as Emily's ex-husband and Special Agent Nick Durand.
