In a surprise move by the network that canceled the new drama series Unforgettable in May at the annual upfront presentations, CBS announced – via Deadline – that it is in discussion to bring the show back with a 13-episode order targeted for next summer.
As we reported earlier, after the show was canceled after one season on CBS, the cable network Lifetime was looking at potentially picking up the series and moving forward with it. But now that CBS is seemingly back in the game that will obviously change. However, the network declined to comment so this news could as easily alter right back.
But, for now, fans of the show that actually averaged 12.1 million viewers each week and starred Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells, a New York detective with the ability to visually remember everything, who works for a team led by her ex-partner and boyfriend, Lt. Al Burns (Walsh), can only hold out hope for its return.
If this deal does, indeed, go through it will be the “highest-profile summer original scripted series to air on CBS in a long time”.
