Everyone loves a good dramatic and suspenseful show. One such program is Absentia, and the fact that it has a 7.2 rating on IMDb is sufficient evidence that it is, to some extent, underestimated.
Many fans praise the show’s creators, Gaia Violo and Matt Cirulnick, for their work on the show’s compelling plot. The story of Absentia follows the definition of absentia, in which a person is deemed dead despite the lack of concrete proof of death, such as a corpse or other physical remnants. Season 3 premiered in 2020 to positive reviews. Season 2 ended with many fans wondering if there would be a Season 4. Now, let’s talk about what’s new for Season 4 of Absentia.
Absentia Season 4 Renewal Status
The program has not been picked up for a fourth season by Amazon Prime Video. The third season of Absentia is now available on Amazon Prime Video.
Absentia Season 4 Release Date
On July 17, 2020, Amazon Prime Video debuted the third season of Absentia. We have some disappointing news for the fans who have been waiting for Season 4 of Absentia. After the release of the third season, the streaming service reportedly decided to end the show, so Season 4 of Absentia is highly unlikely.
Actress Stana Katic, who plays the show’s protagonist, recently addressed the matter in an interview, saying, “Three Seasons was the perfect amount of space for a beautiful, complicated, and wonderfully fulfilling journey.” After this confusing year, I hope we can all say, “We led our protagonist on a journey from victim to survivor to the powerful architect of her own future.
Katic added in her social media statement, “ABSENTIA was always meant to be only 3 seasons, and I couldn’t think of a better note to end on… for any person on this planet, but especially Emily and her loved ones.” That the show has concluded and that there might not be a fourth season is supported by more than just circumstantial evidence.
The crime and thriller series Absentia tells the story of Emily Byrne, a Special FBI agent who vanishes while looking into the case of Boston’s deadliest serial killers. After Emily Byrne vanished, she was presumed killed in absentia. And six years later, Emily Byrne is discovered in the woods, barely alive and with no memory of her disappearing days. Her life becomes more problematic after she returns home and learns that her husband has wedded another woman and that their son is now living with the new woman.

Absentia Season 4 Plot
In season 3, despite serving out the last few days as an FBI officer after being suspended, Emily is still trying hard to establish her bond with her son Flynn. Nick and Emily are investigating a criminal case when things go wrong and Nick is kidnapped. Since the authorities think Nick is dead, Emily doesn’t think she has long to live. So, she risks breaking the law and taking a risk in order to protect her ex-husband.
In contrast, Nick comes to a secluded European cabin. After a long struggle with psychological trauma and psychosis, Nick is finally able to break free and the two are reunited. Nick and Emily team up to thwart Elliot’s potentially disastrous bioweapons project. After seeing Nick and Flynn again in Boston, Emily takes drastic measures to protect her family.
It’s possible that Season 4 will continue just where Season 3 left off. As a result of her previous history of trauma and cognitive injury, Emily is likely to become hypervigilant and slightly on edge. She may, however, make an effort to grow closer to her son, Flynn. Nick and Emily’s life could be in jeopardy, but they may be forced to explore unsavory options.
