Created by Gaia Violo and Matt Cirulnick, Absentia centers on Katic's Emily Byrne, an FBI agent who, while hunting one of Boston's most notorious serial killers, disappears without a trace and is declared dead. Six years later, Emily is found in a cabin in the woods, barely alive and with no memory of the years she was missing. Returning home to learn her husband (Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce's Patrick Heusinger) has remarried and her son (Patrick McCauley) is being raised by another woman (Downton Abbey's Cara Theobold), she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.
