Morrissey, Hawes To Lead New “The Missing”

British thesps David Morrissey (“The Walking Dead,” “State of Play”) and Keeley Hawes (“Ashes to Ashes”) will team with the returning Tcheky Karyo for the second season of Starz and BBC One’s mystery drama “The Missing”.

The anthology series thriller will return for eight episodes with a new case, a new location, and new characters aside from Karyo’s Julien Baptiste. Harry and Jack Williams return as scribes while Ben Chanan (“The Last Kingdom”) is slated to direct all eight episodes.

Morrissey and Hawes play a couple whose daughter Alice went missing in 2003. Eleven years later, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Told in dual timelines, unfolding between 2014 and the present day, we see how her family are thrown back into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams.

Roger Allam, Laura Fraser, Anastasia Hille, Lia Williams, Abigail Hardingham, Jake Davies, Florian Bartholomai and Daniel Ezra also star.
