Absentia season 2: Amazon misses golden opportunity to announce renewal

Absentia season 2We know that later this summer, Absentia season 2 is going to start filming overseas. Based on the timing of this, we imagine that the latest batch of episodes is going to premiere in 2019. This is tremendously exciting!

Yet, we imagine that for some viewers in America, this excitement is mixed with a little bit of frustration. Amazon held its annual panel at the TCA Summer Press Tour on Saturday and as a result of that, we hoped that there would be a season 2 renewal confirmed. After all, there were so many other subjects discussed there whether it be a Lord of the Rings series, the upcoming Matthew Weiner series The Romanoffs, or bringing on board Julia Roberts for a major TV projects. There were a lot of big things discussed, but unfortunately, Absentia and a second season were not officially confirmed.

What’s going on here? For the time being, we’re still asserting that there isn’t all that much to worry about. With production moving forward, it’s fair to say that a second season will eventually debut in America. It would just be nice to see some sort of announcement or attention be paid to the series stateside.

In addition to the Amazon airings, we do wish that there would be some sort of stateside airing of the series in the future, mostly because of the fact that there are so many more viewers who can discover the show that way. Granted, it would have to be on a cable network like FX or TNT, since otherwise you’re going to have to censor or edit the show down a little bit. (This is just wishful thinking on their part, and not something that we explicitly think is going to happen.)

Hopefully, Amazon will officially announce season 2 of Absentia right around the time that it starts filming.
