ITV recommissions Unforgotten for third series

unforgotten2Twenty-seventeen has already proved to be a busy, varied and excellent year for crime drama, with several series already hitting the mark. One of those early trailblazers has been ITV’s Unforgotten, which was both a critical and ratings success when it returned for a second series in January. Now we’ve received news that it will be returning for a third series.

Drawing on complex and current issues, the emotional drama questions everyday morality and analyses the very human stories behind crime as lead characters DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan, played by Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, unravel the truth behind historic murders.  The Guardian complimented the portrayal of Cassie and Sunny referring to them as “credible, real and refreshing” characters that love what they do.

The new six-part series will be written once again by Chris Lang and will see Cassie and Sunny delve into another intricate historical investigation, revealing a fresh web of long-buried secrets.

Lang said of the recommission: “I am so excited to be making a third series of Unforgotten. To be able to bring back the exceptional team we had on series two (both in front of and behind the camera) and to be allowed to discover what the future holds for Cassie and Sunny as they tackle a new historical crime, is a real privilege.”

    This is the best news since I heard Endeavour was getting a 6 episode series next year. Unforgotten is brilliantly written, acted, directed, it is seamless story telling. SO pleased.


  3. So in love with Sanjeev Bhaskar & Nicola Walker as this pair – great news that there is to be a third outing.
