The Missing spinoff? With a third season of the mystery-thriller in doubt, writers Harry and Jack Williams have confirmed the possibility of an offshoot series centered around Julien Baptiste.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Jack Williams said:
“Is there a world where Baptiste comes back in his own show and it’s not The Missing? We haven’t decided at all, but I think if we found the right form to get us excited again, we’d do it.
“We love the world, but the worst thing we could do is rush and say, ‘You liked that? Here’s some more!’ – because guaranteed it would not be good.“
Explaining that a third series of The Missing could “leave a bad taste in the mouth” if it’s not done right, Harry Williams further leans towards a Baptiste spinoff, potentially in 2018:
“We still don’t want to say goodbye to Julien (Tcheky Karyo) – both the actor and the character is someone we want in our lives in some form or another. It just may take quite a bit of time before we figure out what that is.”
