A&E Revives 'Unforgettable' for Season 4

After being canceled twice at CBS, A&E has revived Unforgettable starring Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh for a fourth season consisting of 13 episodes.

The drama focuses on a female detective (Montgomery) who has a medical condition that allows her to remember single day of her life, a skill that becomes invaluable to solving crimes in New York City.

The drama first debuted on CBS as a part of its fall 2011 lineup. As a part of the regular season, the show's ratings didn't excite the network and thusly the show was canceled for the first time that May. Months later, CBS revived the series in order for it to become a part of its expanding summer lineup. During those months where the expectations for ratings are reduced, the procedural thrived and was able to air two seasons. Upon its third season conclusion last fall, CBS canceled it yet again.

Like it did the first time the show was canceled, production company Sony Pictures Television shopped the series to other networks in order to secure a new home. A&E eventually stepped up for the revival. Unlike the first time the show was revived, contract options on the cast and creative team have already expired. Stars Montgomery and Walsh are both expected to reprise their roles as Detectives Carrie Wells and Al Burns. The series creators John Bellucci and Ed Redlick also will be back as executive producers, along with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly. It's currently unclear if any of the additional Season 3 regulars - Jane Curtin, Dallas Roberts, Tawny Cypress and James Hiroyuki Liao - will be back for Season 4.
