UNFORGOTTEN has been renewed for series five without Nicola Walker as DI Sunny Khan gets a new ‘partner in crime’.
The ITV drama’s fourth series concluded in dramatic fashion last night with Nicola’s character DCI Cassie Stuart dying following a car accident.
Her death left fans in floods of tears and also asking whether the show would return without her.
Now ITV has confirmed Unforgotten will be back for a fifth series, revealing in a statement: “ITV would like to thank Nicola Walker for playing the brilliant role of Cassie Stuart in four series of Unforgotten which has become one of the best loved and most critically acclaimed police dramas on TV.
“Nicola and writer Chris Lang decided that Cassie’s story would come to an end last night, but that Unforgotten would continue, in series 5, with a new case, and a new ‘Partner in Crime’ for DI Sunny Khan.”
It continued: “This fourth series has had a record breaking season posting its highest viewing figures.
