Series star Poppy Montgomery has signed on to appear in the newly-revived series, as have co-stars Dylan Walsh and Jane Curtin. But Michael Gaston, Kevin Rankin and Daya Vaidya won't be returning for Season 2, meaning the NYPD squad will likely feature some new recruits.
"Unforgettable" was canceled by CBS after one season. The show aired Tuesdays at 10 p.m. and posted solid ratings, averaging 12.1 million viewers per episode.
"I don't know if it's what went wrong [with 'Unforgettable']," Nina Tassler, president of CBS Entertainment, told reporters after initially canceling "Unforgettable." "It was more about what went right with the new pilots. It started very strong in the beginning of the season. They were continuing to produce great episodes. Every show knows that when they get to end of their first season, they are gonna be in competition with new pilots, and that's what happened. We had a very strong, very good crop of pilots coming in. That forces you to make very difficult decisions."
However, CBS couldn't quit its red-headed detective with hyperthymesia and eventually decided to revive the series for a 13-episode Season 2 scheduled to air in the summer of 2013.
