If you’ve heard of David Morrissey, you’re probably a die-hard fan of The Walking Dead.
And anything to do with bloody zombies, violent rebellion and severed limbs.
But the actor’s role in Season 2 of crime-drama The Missing brags a far more realistic concept: one that hits far closer to home.
Listen to David Morrissey explain why The Missing will be your new TV addiction on The Binge.
Season One of The Missing premiered in the UK back in 2014.
It follows Emily and Tony, parents of five-year-old Oliver, all whom travel to Northern France for a holiday in 2006.
When Tony and Oliver visit a crowded outdoor bar to watch a FIFA World Cup quarter final match, Oliver disappears. The family-holiday-turned-nightmare spirals as the parents scramble to track down their boy.
But they have no luck.
Eight years later, following a failed police investigation, Tony approaches retired private investigator Julien Baptiste. And they re-open the case.
It’s gripping, to say the least. Mystery at its absolute best.
Season Two brings in an entirely new cast, and follows an entirely new story... while maintaining the same blueprint: espionage and mystery, with one family at the centre of it all.
And, while just as thrilling as the first, it stands alone. You can jump on the Season Two bandwagon without having to play catch-up.
Last week, David Morrissey spoke to Mamamia about his upcoming role as patriarch of the central family in Season Two.
"I play a British soldier based in Germany. His daughter, when she was thirteen... is abducted", Morrissey tells Tiffany Dunk and Laura Brodnik on The Binge.
