Stana Katic's 'Absentia' Gets a Season 3 Trailer & Release Date!

The trailer for season three of Stana Kantic‘s series Absentia has arrived!

The fan-favorite series will be back for a new season on Amazon Prime Video on Friday, July 17. All 10 episodes will be released that day in the United States and many other countries around the world.

Here is a synopsis: With Emily Byrne’s suspension from the FBI nearing its end, a criminal case hits close to home, sending Emily on a dangerous journey that threatens the lives of the family she is desperately trying to hold together.

Stana is likely best known for her work as Kate Beckett on the ABC series Castle. A couple years ago, she opened up about her “harsh” exit from the show after her contract was not renewed due to “budgetary reasons.”

Stana Katic Admits She Was 'Hurt' By 'Castle' Firing, But Has Fond Memories From the Show

Stana Katic is opening up about her firing from Castle.

If you forgot, the 42-year-old actress was fired from the ABC show after playing Det. Kate Beckett for eight seasons. She is now opening about how she felt after being axed ahead of what would end up being the show’s final season.

“I was confused by the entire experience,” Stana shared with News Corp via Daily Mail. “I was hurt.”

Now that it’s been four years since the show ended, Stana says she can now look back and remember her time on the show fondly.

“But look, time has passed and I am so thankful to have been a part of that project, for it to have affected as many people as it did,” Stana said. “People loved that couple and loved the story we told, loved all of those characters.”

Stana continued: “It would be a disservice to the work that I did, which I feel partly contributed to the success of the show, if I looked back on it and was anything but grateful for the awesome run.”

Castle, starring Stana and Nathan Fillion, ran from 2009 to 2016.

Here’s the synopsis: A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman. Months later, Megan Reed (Mitchell) is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force.

Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson, and Stana Katic also star in the film, in theaters November 30.

Stana Katic Breaks Silence on 'Harsh' Exit From 'Castle'

Two years ago, Stana Katic‘s contract on Castle was not renewed due to “budgetary reasons,” and it was truly shocking for fans to hear that one of the stars of the show was let go so quickly amid the show’s successful run.

Soon after, the show was cancelled amid backlash from some fans over the decision to let her go.

Now, Stana is speaking for the very first time about how she felt during that time.

“I’m actually still not clear on the thought process behind the way that it went down. It hurt and it was a harsh ending, but now, nearly two years later…I met so many beautiful people on that project, and we collaborated on something really unique in that it’s not every day that you get a show, or a series, that has eight seasons and that it was a hit for the network. It would be a disservice to those people, to the work that we did together, and to my work, which I feel contributed, in part, to the success of the show, to be anything but grateful because, at the end of the day, that was a fantastic platform,” Stana told EW. “It was a formative experience, and we told a love story that I feel moved people, touched people, and I can’t be anything but glad that I was a part of something like that. I hope it remains something special in viewers’ minds forever.”
