CBS Cancels Drama ‘Unforgettable’

Unforgettable Ratings CBS

CBS has canceled the Poppy Montgomery procedural drama “Unforgettable” after three seasons.

The Sony Pictures TV-CBS TV Studios co-production wrapped its second consecutive summer run in September. “Unforgettable’s” cancellation comes a day after CBS renewed two of its summer series — “Under the Dome” and “Extant” — and axed first-year drama “Reckless.”

“Unforgettable” has already cheated death once. It was canceled at the close of its first season, but revived shortly afterward when the Eye decided to rev up its summer original series lineup in 2013. Sony Pictures TV is likely to shop the property to potential cable buyers.

Montgomery stars as a detective with the gift of a perfect, photographic memory. John Belluci created the series and exec produces with Ed Redlich, Ed Decter, Michael Reisz, Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

    An excellent show that deserves to be supported by all the people that want quality programming.

    I really liked Reckless! It was a good show and should have been renewed. I get sick of wasting time watching shows that get yanked off the air.

  3. Mike B says:

    It was’t very good.

  4. You morons! You keep cancelling one show after another and people happen to like the shows you are cancelling. Pretty soon no one will watch TV anymore and then where will your ratings be?

    And will anyone really miss this show. Ms. Montgomery is a role player miscast as a star. For example she would have made an interesting addition to Criminal Minds instead of Jennifer Love ” I Can’t Act” Hewitt, who is very close to winning the dubious award for worst hair on TV.

      I could not have put that any more succinctly if I tried. Excellent and cogent comment. I was less than thrilled with her close-ups as well.

    i don’t watch any of these shows except a few episodes of Under The Dome. With all the winners I watch at CBS it must be frustrating to be a CBS cancellation :-( Bye Bye
