Absentia finally has a premiere date!

It's been a long and winding road for those of us who want to watch the series, but Amazon has confirmed all ten episodes will release at once on its streaming platform, Amazon Prime from February 2.

The thriller is fronted by Castle's Stana Katic and will serve as her first series regular role since the ABC crime-solver went off the air in 2016. 

The series tells the story of FBI agent Emily Byrne (Katic) who, while hunting one of Boston’s most prominent serial killers, disappears and is declared dead.

Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, with no memory of the years she was missing.

Returning home, she finds out that her husband (Patrick Heusinger) has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman.

As if that was not bad enough, she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders and faces a race against the clock to prove her innocence while trying to keep her loved ones safe. 

The series has been in the works since 2016 and has already aired all episodes in many territories outside the U.S.

It's great to get all the episodes at once because the show does seem like on that would be best viewed in large doses.
