The Disappearance is a Canadian television drama miniseries, which premiered on CTV in October 2017.[2] Centred on the disappearance of a young boy, the series stars Peter Coyote, Camille Sullivan, Aden Young, Joanne Kelly and Micheline Lanctôt.[3] It later premiered in the UK on the Universal in February 2018.[4]

The series was first developed in 2011 as a French language project written by Normand Daneau and Geneviève Simard, but after Productions Casablanca was unable to sell it to any of Quebec's francophone television networks they opted to translate the scripts into English, and were successful in pitching the series to Bell Media.[3]

The series was directed by Peter Stebbings.[5]

The series received several Canadian Screen Award nominations at the 6th Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Limited Series or Program and Best Actress in a Television Film or Miniseries (Sullivan).[6]
