CBS Decides to Remember ‘Unforgettable’ After Cancellation?

CBS Unforgettable 2013

These days, a TV series coming back from cancellation isn’t all that surprising.  Whether finding life on a new network, or being resurrected in a few format, it’s always nice to see shows that didn’t deserve the axe get a last minute respite.  Still, it’s most surprising when a major network simply changes its mind, and decides to breathe new life into a recent cancellation.  In the case of CBS, it seems they just couldn’t forget about ‘Unforgettable.’

According to Deadline TV, currently-cancelled procedural ‘Unforgettable’ is in talks to return for a summer airing of 13 all-new episodes next year.  The freshman drama achieved moderate ratings in its initial timeslot, but was ultimately pushed aside to make way for a larger development slate of CBS fall programming.

For those unfamiliar with the series, ‘Unforgettable’ followed Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), a New York detective with an impressive eidetic memory that allows her to remember everything, who works for a team led by her ex-partner and boyfriend, Lt. Al Burns (‘Nip/Tuck’s DylanWalsh).  In its initial run, the series averaged 12.1 million viewers and a 2.5/7 among adults 18-49.

CBS declined to comment on a possible revival of the series for 2013, but when asked about its initial cancellation, CBS president Nina Tassler said that the move wasn’t about “what went wrong with Unforgettable but what went right with the new pilots.”
