In the series, Beaumont is called in to save lives when nobody else can. He's supported by psych-profiler Oliver Yates ( Brandon Jay McLaren), ex-cop Zara Hallam ( Nazneen Contractor), and aspiring investigator Maxine Carlson ( Sarah Greene).
Beaumont understands criminals—often better than they understand themselves—and uses his insight into human behavior to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases.
Despite the stakes, he refuses to resort to violence, even when confronted by some of the most dangerous criminals in the world.
The new episodes are set to be filmed in Hungary and will be broadcast next year, with additional details being announced at a later date.
