Drama That Was Canceled After Season One, Then Revived, Survives Again -- Picked Up for a Third Season THR
A drama series that has had a rocky road to success -- being canceled after its first season, only to be revived for a summer run -- has made it to a third season. The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports that "Unforgettable" has been renewed for season three by CBS.
The procedural starring Poppy Montgomery will return for 13 episodes in summer 2014. The renewal comes after the drama averaged 8.23 million viewers this summer and scored a 1.4 average rating in adults 18-49 and a 2.0 in adults 25-54.
"It ranked as Sunday's top scripted program in total viewers. In its Sundays at 9 p.m. slot, 'Unforgettable' was up nearly double year over year in all three metrics," the story notes.
The renewal means that CBS is moving forward with both of its summer scripted dramas, following the renewal of "Under the Dome."
