Absentia: The Amazon Prime Video Absentia series has been canceled by the platform and will not have a 4th season. Season 3 – and now the last – was shown on streaming in 2020.
Stana Katic, who played special agent Emily Byrne, shared the news of the cancellation on her Twitter profile and said in her text that “although we danced with the idea of continuing the story, Absentia has always only had three seasons”.
The actress took advantage of the statement to thank the production team for the partnership in the development of the project started in 2017 and for the friendships made.
“When I was asked in January 2017 if I was ready to spend three years in Bulgaria recording a TV series, I had no idea what was coming. I could never imagine the creative partnerships and friendships that would form and enrich my life. Three seasons was the perfect amount of space for a beautiful, complicated and wonderfully rewarding journey ”.
After thanking the team, Katic directed his communication to the public. “It is because of you that our program has been a great success for your broadcasters. It is because of you that we can entertain you and be storytellers. And regardless of the next project this tribe of rebel storytellers goes to, I hope you follow them all. ”
The actress ended with more personal thanks. “Time has passed and I am very grateful to be part of this project and for it to affect so many people”.
