BAFTA winning show The Missing was one of the most talked about dramas of 2014, and now another season of the show is on its way to the BBC. The first series saw James Nesbitt and Frances O'Connor faced with every parent's worst nightmare when their son Olly goes missing when they're on holiday in France.

While some were disappointed by the ending in that (spoiler alert) Olly was never found, the second season attempts to tackle a different aspect of the missing person ordeal - when they do return.

It stars David Morrissey and Keeley Hawes as Sam and Gemma, a couple whose young daughter Alice went missing in 2003. As with the first season, the time line will go back and forth between when it happened and 2014 - when Alice resurfaces after eleven years.

The eight part series will see only one cast member returning from the original, that of detective Julien Baptiste played by Tchéky Karyo. Also set to star is Breaking Bad's Laura Fraser and Endeavour's Roger Allam, while Cyberbully's Ben Chanan will direct.

Chanon said of the new season; "While we were writing the first series, we began talking about what the show would have been had Oliver Hughes been found. This story grew out of that discussion.

"It's the other side of the coin to series one - an exploration of loss, of freedom, of how the past can shape the present in myriad ways that we cannot fully understand.

"It's bigger, more ambitious, and we're delighted to have such a brilliantly talented cast joining Julien Baptiste for a new case."

No air date has been confirmed yet from the BBC.
