Unforgettable seems to be one of those shows that just won’t stay cancelled. Deadline is reporting that A&E is finalizing a deal to save the twice-cancelled series from the grim reaper with a fourth season of 13 episodes.
The contracts with the cast have all expired but at least Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh are expected to be back. No word yet on the other castmembers. Series creators John Bellucci and Ed Redlich (as executive producers) will return along with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Unforgettable did skew older on CBS so the pick-up by A&E does seems like a bit of a surprise since they cancelled Longmire for attracting an older audience. The difference between the two is said to be the licensing fees.
Both are produced by outside studios. Longmire was quite expensive for the cable channel (they supposedly lost money on the deal) while Unforgettable is not. The latter does quite well internationally which has allowed Sony to keep the fees down and profitable.
Sony has a history of fighting to keep cancelled shows alive and has found new homes for Community, Damages, and Drop Dead Diva.
No word on when the fourth season of Unforgettable will be produced but an official announcement is expected once the deal is sealed.
What do you think? Are you glad that Unforgettable is being revived again? Will you be watching season four?
