It took a while but it looks like CBS has remembered Unforgettable. After initially canceling the Poppy Montgomery fronted drama series in May, the eye network has renewed Unforgettable for a second season, TVWise has learned. CBS has ordered 13 episodes for the show’s second season, which is set to air next summer.
Unforgettable was created by Ed Redlich and revolves around Carrie Wells, an NYPD detective who can remember everything except for what happened on the day that her sister was murdered. Carrie works as a homicide detective in a unit led by her ex-boyfriend and partner, Lieutenant Al Burns. Produced by Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios the drama series stars Poppy Montgomery, Dylan Walsh, Kevin Rankin, Michael Gaston, Daya Vaidya and Jane Curtin.
The move to renew Unforgettable comes after series producer Sony Pictures Television began shopping the series to a number of different network, including TNT and Lifetime, following CBS initial decision to cancel the series, which had been controversial given the series was the highest rated casualty of the 2011 – 2012 season (across its first season, the series averaged 12 million viewers and a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demo).
