Acclaimed BBC1 crime drama The Missing is returning for a second series – and here’s the first full-length trailer unlocking further clues about what to expect.
Tcheky Karyo is reprising his role as the retired French police officer in the drama, which this time around is about the return of a missing girl.
The new series sees Baptiste “race across Europe to pursue a 12-year-old case that he never let die.” The case of Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), a young British girl who went missing in 2003 only to mysteriously turn up in her hometown in 2014.
“It’s the other side of the coin to series one,” say writers Harry and Jack Williams, “an exploration of loss, of freedom, of how the past can shape the present in myriad ways that we cannot fully understand. It’s bigger, more ambitious, and we’re delighted to have such a brilliantly talented cast joining Julien Baptiste for a new case.”
Karyo will appear alongside David Morrissey and Keeley Hawes, who play Alice’s parents Sam and Gemma.
Season one of The Missing followed Tony (James Nesbitt) and Emily Hughes (Frances O’Connell) whose 5-year-old son Oliver disappeared while they were on holiday in France.
