Absentia US network to be announced in coming weeks; see international rollout

Absentia USWho is ready for some Absentia US news? CarterMatt has been hoping to have some additional insight on the show’s American home for a while and now, it seems like we’re getting close the announcement actually happening.

In a press release today, Sony confirmed that “in the coming weeks” you’ll get a chance to learn where the show is going to be airing in America. We’re sure that this is frustrating for those of you wanting to get to watch the show around the same time it’s airing in several other countries, but sometimes beggars can’t be choosers. The good news coming out of this is that you aren’t going to have to wait that much longer to know who will be broadcasting the Stana Katic – Patrick Heusinger series. When that happens, we have a feeling that the fine folks over at Showcase will also announce a premiere date in Canada — our feeling there is that the network is going to coordinate roughly around the same time that the show is airing stateside.

Take a look below at all of the confirmed international premiere dates for the series:

Spain                            9/25/2017
Portugal                       9/25/2017
Romania                      9/25/2017
Hungary                       9/26/2017
Poland                         9/26/2017
Bulgaria                       9/27/2017
Russia/CIS                  10/2/2017
Adria                            10/11/2017
Czech/Slovakia           10/11/2017
Bosnia/Herzegovina   10/11/2017
Croatia                          10/11/2017
Macedonia                   10/11/2017
Serbia                           10/11/2017
Slovenia                       10/11/2017

As we’ve mentioned before, we’re going to hold off on some of our coverage until Absentia airs in North America — just know if you watch today that you’re going to be in for some pretty incredible entertainment. We have already seen the premiere and we have to say that the first episode is pretty amazing.
