Unforgotten is a British drama show that revolves around investigators Sunny Khan and Cassie Stuart. The twins explore puzzling criminal cases that are pending for the past several years. As they start investigating cases, in each case they come across a link of unknown guys with the sufferer. Developed by Chris Lang and directed by Andy Wilson, the drama first aired on 8th October 2015 on the ITV network in the United Kingdom.
As the show succeeded in getting great feedback from people in its origin nation, it was later released in the United States on 8th April 2018. The series has got good critical reviews for its great script, amazing performances, and intense criminal cases that viewers get to see in every episode. Fans have really loved the show’s concept and have enjoyed watching all four seasons of the drama.
Now, they are excited to watch further seasons of the drama. They are curious to know the Unforgotten Season 5 release date. So, here is what we have explored so far –
Are We Getting To Know Unforgotten Season 5 Release Date?
The fourth season of ‘Unforgotten’ arrived on 22nd February 2021, on ITV and it concluded on 29th March 2021. Season 4 consists of six episodes and they have an average duration of 45 minutes. Now, if we talk about the fifth season, see what we have figured out. On 30th March 2021, ITV revealed that Unforgotten Season 5 is on the way. However, the network didn’t share the release date of the fifth season with us.
We have seen the kind of love that the series has received from the side of showrunners. It has got impressive 8.3/10 stars on the IMDb and outstanding 89% critics ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. Tom Courtenay has won the 2016 BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actor for introductory series and Mark Bonnar has been honored with the 2017 BAFTA Scotland for Best Actor in TV for 2nd season.
The popularity and craze of drama have given birth to the ABC edition of drama named ‘Suspects’ which is in the initial stages of development. Since the emergence of the series we have observed that every next season takes a longer time than the previous one to arrive. The second season was launched 15 months after the arrival of the first season while the third season was released approx 18 months after the release of season 2.
And, the fourth season arrived almost two and a half years later after the release of season 3. As COVID-19 created trouble for showrunners to film Unforgotten series 4, it took a longer time to arrive. Since Coronavirus is not over yet so it can again develop problems for creators to film season 5. So, if we consider these parameters fifth season won’t arrive before the second half of 2022.
How Will Unforgotten Season 5 Plot Be?
We haven’t received any official synopsis of season 5, so we can’t provide you any accurate details about its storyline. However, after seeing the ending of the previous season we can anticipate the incidents that can happen in Unforgotten Season 5. In season 4 Cassie Stuart and Sunny Khan probe a multiple years old case where a man’s disintegrating corpse was obtained in a metal garage. The corpse was kept in a household freezer probably since 1990.
When the inquiry goes ahead, we witness a sensitive and psychological toll the show lay hold of indulged people. Season 4 also puts a highlight on the police team as an institution. When Unforgotten Season 5 will arrive, we will see a new thrilling case that these two detectives will solve. So, the upcoming season is again going to be rip-roaring and gripping and will deliver a good dose of entertainment to viewers.
