Alert: Missing Persons Unit Season 2 Plot: What to expect?
To avoid early spoilers, not much has been revealed, but it is expected to follow the basic premise, which follows:
“A character-driven police procedural drama set in the Philadelphia Police Department’s Missing Persons Unit (MPU). When police officer Nikki Batista’s son goes missing, she joins the special unit to help other people find their loved ones, even as she searches for her own.
“Alert: Missing Persons Unit” is a procedural drama with a heart-pounding, life-or-death search for a missing person in each episode, running alongside Nikki and her ex-husband’s quest to find out the truth about their long-lost son. It’s a case-of-the-week show with a case-of-a-lifetime story running through it — a story that alternately brings the two main characters gut-wrenching heartache and heart-pounding joy.”
Moreover, the series is expected to continue the plot from the final episode, “Max,” directed by Adam Kane and written by Katie Varney. In the finale, which was viewed by 2.35 million US viewers, the plot unfolded, and the mystery surrounding Keith’s disappearance started to unravel as he told Jason and Nikki more details about his time in captivity.
This show, with only one season, has recorded 8.5 million multi-platform viewers, a rise of 112% from Live+Same Day figures. Its 6.7 million multi-platform first-season average also represents an increase of 154% from live and same-day numbers. So, it will be exciting to see what direction the show creators and writers will take for this crime drama series in the new season.
Alert: Missing Persons Unit Season 2 Cast: Who will reprise their roles?
The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles are as follows:
Scott Caan as Jason Grant, Nikki’s ex-husband, works in the Missing Persons Unit with her to help people find their missing loved ones. He is formerly a private security contractor; Dania Ramirez as Nikki Batista, the Captain of the Missing Persons Unit and Jason’s ex-wife; Ryan Broussard as Mike Sherman; Adeola Role as MPU Detective Kemi Adebayo; and Graham Verchere as Lucas Hadley/Keith.
Moreover, the recurring cast who are expected to return are as follows: Petey Gibson as C Hemingway, supervisor of the Missing Persons Unit’s forensic imaging unit; Fivel Stewart as Sidney Grant, Jason and Nikki’s daughter; and Elana Dunkelman as Rachel, medical examiner.
The show will have a new showrunner for season two with Carla Kettner, who was an executive producer of The Blacklist, replacing John Eisendrath, who served as showrunner for season one. The show comes from Sony Pictures Television, an independent studio without its network or streaming service, which means that they were able to be more flexible in terms of deal-making. They are co-produced with Fox Entertainment.
At last, the series is executive produced by Jamie Foxx and John Eisendrath, as well as Kettner.
