Starz announced that all eight episodes of the Golden Globe and Emmy award-nominated thriller “The Missing” will be made available for STARZ subscribers on the STARZ app and streaming services, as well as STARZ ON DEMAND simultaneously with its network premiere on Sunday, February 12.
Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht said, “The STARZ series ‘The Girlfriend Experience’ and ‘Flesh and Bone’ experienced considerable growth in binge watching over the course of their seasons, and we believe the same success will hold true for ‘The Missing.’ The thriller aspect of the season is such an adrenaline rush, that we believe many viewers will want to watch more than one episode at a time. It’s truly addictive storytelling.”
Named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the “25 Most Anticipated TV Shows of 2017,” “The Missing” is written by Harry and Jack Williams (“One of Us,” “Fleabag”) and solely directed by Ben Chanan (“The Last Kingdom,” “Cyberbully”). Produced by New Pictures in association with Two Brothers Pictures and Playground for BBC One and Starz, the 8-episode limited series introduces a new case with new characters in a new location.
The premiere episode of “The Missing” second installment will also be available in a free, nationwide preview on February 6, nearly one week prior to the season premiere on Sunday, February 12 on STARZ. The episode will be available to STARZ subscribers via the STARZ app and STARZ ON DEMAND, online at Starz.com and through participating U.S. cable, satellite and telco affiliates as well as participating OTT partners beginning Monday, February 6 at 12:01 AM ET through February 12.
Future episodes of the highly-anticipated limited series will premiere weekly at 8:00 ET/PT on STARZ airing every Sunday night through April 2. All eight episodes of “The Missing” will be available exclusively for STARZ subscribers on the STARZ app and STARZ ON DEMAND beginning February 12 at 12:01 AM ET.
