CBS has dropped the axe on Unforgettable…..again.
The network has cancelled the Poppy Montgomery fronted procedural after airing three seasons of the series, TVWise has learned.
Created by Ed Redlich, Unforgettable follows 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. The drama series stars produced by Sony Pictures Television & CBS Television Studios and stars Poppy Montgomery, Dylan Walsh, Jane Curtin, Tawny Cypress, Dallas Roberts and James Hiroyuki Liao.
The cancellation comes shortly after the show wrapped its third season, with the finale drawing an average audience of 6.1 million viewers and a 1.1 A18-49 rating. The writing had been on the wall for Unforgettable, which has struggled to maintain a decent overnight audience during its third season. With the decision to cancel the show, CBS has finalised their line up for Summer 2015 – having recently ordered new seasons of Under The Dome and Extant, as well as ordering new series Zoo.
This marks the second time that CBS has pulled the plug on Unforgettable. The network initially cancelled the drama in May 2012, but after series producer Sony Pictures Television started shopping the series to other networks, CBS reversed course and picked up a second season for Summer 2013. Sony are not expected to attempt to bring back the show for a second time.
