The Missing

Acclaimed mystery drama The Missing returns to TVNZ 1 with the same multi-layered plotting, cliffhanger twists and raw and honest characters that made series one an unmissable television event.

A new case, new characters and a new location, but the same compelling action. Season two of The Missing will once again captivate audiences until the very end.

In 2014, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Her name is Alice Webster and she has been missing for 11 years.

Told in dual timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, we follow parents Sam (David Morrissey) and Gemma (Keeley Hawes) as they are thrown back into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams.

Alice’s return sends shockwaves through the small German community and when a delirious Alice murmurs the name Sophie Giroux, French missing persons detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) races across Europe to pursue a 12-year-old case that he never let die.

The eight-part anthology explores the murky morality and emotional complexity of what happens when the missing child you’ve been longing to return actually comes back.
