She disappeared. No one heard from her for six years. No one knows what happened to her, not even her. An FBI Agent tracking a Boston serial killer vanishes, and is declared dead. Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, with no memory of what happened during the time she went missing. She comes back to a husband who has remarried, and whose wife is raising her son. She will have to navigate in her new reality, and she will soon find herself implicated in a new series of murders.

Did You Know?


Absentia was an extraordinarily difficult project because all 10 episodes were filmed simultaneously based on location. It was filmed like a movie over three and a half months in the middle of winter. See more »

Truthful review to help potential viewer set expectations
24 October 2018 | by edroc-67523See all my reviews

I was home sick for 2 days and watched this in its entirety. I'm the kind of person who once starts watching a series will usually see it through. I wish this was 2-3 episodes shorter. They could have done it and it would not have felt so long and had a lot of the ridiculous things happen that did not seem to add any value. That said, the fact I'm posting on this (unusual) means both the show has grabbed my attention and also left me confused and disappointed and I came looking for answers. The reviews that mention huge plot holes are right on. UNLESS, there is some VERY clever writing and it has been done purposefully in a longer story arc. If you watch network TV shoes (CSI) and want to step up, this might be a satisfying show. If you like and keep track of character arcs on HBO drama's, this will feel thinly written.
