The Missing writers will 'never say never' to third series

The Missing creators have hinted that the hit show could return for a third series.

Viewers can barely contain their excitement as the second series – about a girl who went missing from a British army base in Germany – reaches its finale next week.

And now co-writer Harry Williams has suggested that there could be another run of the gripping programme, reported the Daily Express.

He was quoted as saying: “It would have to be very different, but never say, never.”

The programme has been following a couple played by David Morrissey and Keeley Hawes, whose daughter Alice went missing but apparently returned years later.

Producer Willow Grylls said that “all the questions that have been asked will be answered” when the season concludes on Wednesday.

The Missing made its debut in 2014, with the first series following Tony and Emily Hughes (James Nesbitt and Frances O’Connor), as they searched for their five-year-old son Oliver.
