'Absentia' Is Over After Three Seasons, Stana Katic Speaks Out on Ending the Show

Stana Katic has revealed some sad news for fans of her TV series Absentia.

The Amazon Prime series has officially ended after three seasons and she will not be returning to make a fourth season. The third season premiered in July 2020, so fans have been waiting for nearly 10 months to find out if there would be more episodes.

Stana revealed in her note to fans that the show was always intended to have only three seasons and even though a fourth season was considered, they made the decision to end the show.

Read Stana Katic’s full letter below…

“When they asked me in January 2017 if I was ready to spend 3 years in Bulgaria shooting a cable TV series, I had no idea what I was in for. I could never have imagined the creative partnerships and the friendships that would form and enrich my life. Three Seasons was the perfect amount of space for a beautiful, complicated and wonderfully fulfilling journey. We took our protagonist on the path of victim to survivor to … empowered architect of her own future, which is a journey I hope we can all have after this confounding year. And although we’ve danced with the idea of continuing the tale, ABSENTIA was always meant to be only 3 seasons, & I couldn’t think of a better note to end on… for any person on this planet, but especially Emily and her loved ones.”

I’m proud of our team for bringing themselves to this project in order to bring life to Absentia. Thank you to Sony, Amazon, AXN, Showcase & all affiliates for your support of our special show. A big shout-out to all of our stellar directors, to exec producer, Julie Glucksman, and to our showrunner Will Pascoe. You all led with heart and passion; and Will, I sincerely hope the studio will take you up on your offer to pen a graphic novel version of Absentia. ;) To our audience, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining us on this special journey. It is because of YOU that our show was a great success for its broadcasters. It’s because of YOU that we get to entertain you and be storytellers. And whatever projects this tribe of rebel storytellers goes to next, I hope you’ll follow them all.

Last but not least, to my cast and crew, it’s been an honor—you are all the best in the business. And I mean that wholeheartedly. Here’s to the next time! xS
