ITV is bringing back the drama Unforgotten, from creator Chris Lang (Innocent, Dark Heart), for a fourth season.
From Mainstreet Pictures, the new series will see Nicola Walker (Last Tango in Halifax, The Split) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Goodness Gracious Me, Paddington 2) reprise their roles as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunny Khan, respectively, as they investigate another cold case. The new six-part season will once again be penned by Lang and directed by Andy Wilson (Ripper Street, Endeavour), both of whom have worked on all three of the previous seasons.
Lang said: “I am so delighted to have been asked to make a fourth series of Unforgotten. The reaction to series three was better than I could ever have expected (with more people watching the last episode than any other in all three series) and I cannot wait to discover what lies ahead for Cassie and Sunny, and to create a whole new cast of characters for them to grapple with.”
ITV’s head of drama, Polly Hill, said: “We have been delighted with the reception of the first three series of Unforgotten and are thrilled to commission a fourth installment. Chris Lang’s writing is incredibly powerful and his storytelling utterly compelling, so we have no doubt that the new case will have viewers gripped again.”
Executive Producers Laura Mackie and Sally Haynes added: “Unforgotten has gone from strength to strength and we were so pleased to see the audience grow for the third series.”
