It looks like Unforgettable may not be forgotten after all. Word is that CBS is in talks to bring the cancelled series back to the airwaves. According to Deadline, the network is discussing the possibility of bringing Unforgettable back for a 13 episode second season for next summer.
Starring Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh, CBS cancelled Unforgettable in May after one season of 22 episodes. By the end of the freshman season, Unforgettable had averaged a 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.3 million total viewers.
It was the highest-rated CBS drama to be cancelled for the 2011-12 season and, had it been on any other network, Unforgettable would have likely have been renewed. At the recent advertiser upfronts, CBS entertainment president noted that it wasn’t “what went wrong with Unforgettable but what went right with the new pilots.”
Following the network cancellation, CBS TV Studios and Sony Pictures began shopping the drama to other channels — including TNT and Lifetime — but apparently didn’t find any takers.
What do you think? Would you like to see Unforgettable return for a second season? Do you think its rating would be better in the summer months?
