After Found season 1 was met with tremendous success during the strike-beleaguered 2023-2024 television season, the missing persons procedural with a twist was quickly granted a second season pickup so it can appear in the NBC 2024 fall TV lineup. 

Shanola Hampton plays Gabi, the head of a crisis management team that specializes in finding missing persons who would otherwise fly under the radar. In the season 1 pilot, we learn that Gabi was once a kidnapping victim herself, but there's a twist: she has been holding her captor, Mark-Paul Gosselaar's Sir, prisoner in her basement. Season 2 picks up after Sir's escape and Gabi's race to find him before everything unravels before her eyes.  

Here's everything we know about Found season 2.

Found season 2 plot

Here's the official synopsis of Found season 2 from NBC: "In any given year, more than 600,000 people are reported missing in the U.S. More than half that number are people of color that the country seems to forget about. Public relations specialist Gabi Mosely (series star and producer Shanola Hampton), who was once herself one of those forgotten ones, and her crisis management team make sure there is always someone looking out for the missing. Gabi, however, has a chilling secret: In the midst of grief, she imprisoned her childhood kidnapper, Sir (Mark-Paul Gosselaar). Now Sir has escaped and is on the loose, and her biggest secret is now her biggest threat."
