As for how soon, let’s just say tomorrow! In a post on Twitter, the show’s official Twitter account revealed that there is going to be something big coming up on tomorrow. Given that the hashtag #AbsentiaAXN was used in the tweet without mention of Amazon Prime (where it airs in the first place), our guess is that it could have to do more with overseas dates or some sort of international preview — even if that does prove to be the case, it’s still something that viewers in America can be excited for. We are at this particular point right now in the lead-up for season 2 that nobody has any more information than anyone else. If a new promo surfaces, then it’s a chance for everyone to discover it for the first time. Cherish that — more than likely, there will be a time in which some countries have information a little bit earlier than others. That happened for season 1, and we certainly think that it will happen for season 2.
One thing that we certainly have some confidence about right now is that Absentia has a pretty fun marketing campaign — given that this show is at its core a mystery, it only makes sense to present clues and teasers for the future in the same way. It creates a little bit more an interactive environment, which we think is extremely important for setting up the show’s future. Generating discussion can often lead to more viewers, and that’s something that we want for this show — especially in America. We know many viewers who watched it and enjoyed it, but we want to see that number ultimately pushed to a new level.
