Investigation Discovery Reviving Missing Persons Series ‘Disappeared’ (EXCLUSIVE)

After a three-plus year hiatus, Investigation Discovery will revive its missing persons docu-series “Disappeared” for a seventh season, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series will return to Investigation Discovery with 10 new episodes, premiering on April 11.

Produced by NBC News’ Peacock Productions, “Disappeared” originally debuted on Investigation Discovery in February 2010 and wrapped in April 2013 after running for five consecutive seasons.

According to the cabler, the comeback comes after an influx of viewer requests for new episodes rolled in, paired with the success of various “Disappeared” specials that aired in 2014 and 2015.

“’Disappeared’ was one of the cornerstone series that helped launch ID, and our viewers have told us time and again that there’s nothing else like it on television,” said Investigation Discovery general manager Kevin Bennett. “After listening to their outcry to cover more cases, we realized that ‘Disappeared‘ isn’t just a part of ID’s DNA but it’s also an important tool to help families and law enforcement bring much needed attention to heart-breaking cold cases.”

Interspersed with re-creation footage and interviews with family, friends and investigators, each episode of “Disappeared” hones in on a hopeful family that’s desperate to locate a missing loved one. The end fo each episode prompts viewers to contact law enforcement with any new information on the cases.
