Although there is a lack of confirmation, Absentia Season 3 is officially happening. There is a new cast member joining the series, and the writers' room is now in the works.

According to Amazon Adviser, Amazon was close to renewing the show for Season 3. But despite not having an official renewal, a new cast member has joined the series, and the production has begun.

Stana Katic, who plays Emily Byrne, shared a photo of the writers' room in the works on Instagram. After that, it was confirmed that Ross O'Hennessy joined the series to play the role of Macleod.

O'Hennessy's management company, International Arts Management, announced the news on Twitter. However, it is not yet revealed if the 45-year-old star would only be a guest star or would have a recurring role. It also remains to be seen if he will be a friend or foe.

Fans may know O'Hennessy as the Lord of Bones on HBO's hit series, Game of Thrones. Although he only appeared in one episode, it was a memorable one as it was Season 5's critically-acclaimed Episode 8, "Hardhome." He also made an appearance in The Bastard Executioner and Starz's Da Vinci's Demons.

With a lot under his belt, it may be an excellent sight to see what O'Hennessy will bring to Absentia Season 3. The show will be in production for the remainder of the year.

CarterMatt noted the new season is already surrounded by mystery, given the way the previous season ended. Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Now that Alice (Cara Theobold) is dead, it remains to be seen how the story will go. There are questions how Flynn (Patrick McAuley) and Nick's (Patrick Heusinger) storylines will flow. There is also an emotional component of Emily's possible new dangerous case - her MO.

With all the things she has been through, she already understands darker storylines and everything wrong in the universe compare to other people. So far, nothing is officially known about Absentia Season 3's official plotline.

However, Amazon may drop a few details about the show and O'Hennesy's new character when the new season's release nears. So, when will the third installment hit the small screens?

There are assumptions that if Absentia Season 3 will have the same timeline as the previous one, it may be out next summer on Amazon. It may also come out in the spring in some parts of the world, following its usual schedule.
