The Stana Katic-led Absentia has been renewed for a second season by Amazon, the streamer announced Thursday. The sophomore installment is currently in production in Sofia, Bulgaria, and set to debut in 2019 on Prime Video.

Castle alum Katic stars in and executive-produces Absentia, which centers on FBI agent Emily Byrne (Katic). In season one, Emily disappeared without a trace and was declared dead after hunting one of Boston’s most notorious serial killers. Six years later, Emily was found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive, and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband had remarried and her son was being raised by another woman, she soon found herself implicated in a new series of murders.

In Season Two, after tracking down and killing her abductor, Emily struggles for a tenuous new normal with son Flynn and ex-husband Nick. But her obsessive investigation into the questions that haunt her uncovers a serial killer and a spiraling conspiracy that threatens more than just her family.

New cast members joining season two include Matthew Le Nevez (“The Widow”) and Natasha Little (“The Night Manager”).

Le Nevez will portray the character Cal Isaac, a rugged ex-Navy SEAL with a disarmingly upbeat disposition. Cal’s familiar with the demons that chase Emily (Katic) and proves to be a loyal and sympathetic counterpart to the series heroine. Little will portray the character of Special Agent Julianne Gunnarsen, an accomplished, enigmatic and beautiful FBI profiler with a chilly efficiency who joins the ranks of the Boston FBI field office after a deadly terrorist attack rocks the city.

Patrick Heusinger returns for season two as Emily’s ex-husband and Special Agent Nick Durand. In addition to Katic, Heusinger, Le Nevez and Little, the cast includes Cara Theobold (“Downton Abbey”), Neil Jackson (“Sleepy Hollow”), Angel Bonanni (“False Flag”), Paul Freeman (“The Dogs of War”) and Patrick McAuley (“The Conjuring 2”).

The series was created by Gaia Violo and Matt Cirulnick, and is based on a pilot script originally written by Violo.
