    Hi all,

    I’m writing an article about this year’s large crop of borderline dramas that are competing as miniseries this year, but I didn’t watch “The River” or “Missing” so I’m wondering if they have open endings.

    “Missing” hasn’t ended its season yet, but do we know if it’s expected to resolve its storylines before it’s done? I can’t imagine they’ve had a chance to fashion an ending since it’s only 10 episodes and I don’t think it’s been officially canceled yet.

    The creator of Missing said this at TCA:

    “I am as annoyed as anybody by mystery shows that say to find out what
    happens, tune in next season,” Poirier said. “I will tell you this
    story will close by the end of the season, and you will have a strong
    idea where we’re going next season. I’m not going to say specifically,
    but we set out not to give you one of those disappointments.”

    Thanks, uncreativename!

    How about “The River”? A cliffhanger ending for that one?

    The River finale was good, but I’d say it was half open ending and half closed ending. Basically…

    SPOILERS FOLLOW

    The show was about finding Emmett Cole, and they found him. Then on their way out of the Amazon, the jungle morphed around them in order to keep them contained within the river. In other words, if Season One was about finding Emmett Cole, that story was resolved. But they’re still trapped down there and I’m assuming Season Two will be about trying to get out.
