A&E Won’t Let Unforgettable Die – Gives CBS Drama Another Season

I was a pretty big fan of Unforgettable when it first hit, and through the first season it delivered well. The second season slowed a bit, and the show didn’t make the cut… until it did again, and then it was back for a third.

CBS passed again, but the show just won’t go away.

A&E, perhaps not the first network you think of when it comes to saving shows from other networks, is picking up Unforgettable for a fourth season.

The show obviously has fans, and I love the idea of cable networks picking up shows. There’s a different culture at play, and the ratings requirements are different, and some shows should get a shot.

I just hope the show takes advantage, and tweaks the overall effort a bit so that it can stick around more.

After being canceled twice at CBS, A&E has revived the drama from Sony Pictures Television for a fourth season consisting of 13 episodes, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The news comes after NBC briefly toyed with the idea of picking up the procedural.

The series about a female detective (Poppy Montgomery) who remembers everything except the day her sister was murdered was canceled after its freshman run on CBS and revived months later for a summer run, where it excelled in a period with reduced ratings expectations.
