“Unforgotten” Makes Its Return

After COVID-19 forced a months-long hiatus in its shooting, Season 4 of Unforgotten, the popular British cold-case crime drama starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, is finally scheduled to begin its six-part run on ITV in the UK beginning on Monday, February 22.

So what can we expect from these new episodes? Radio Times reports that Season 4 it will compel London Detective Chief Inspector Cassie Stuart (Walker) and her partner, Detective Inspector Sunny Khan (Bhaskar), to “once again face a historic murder case and unearth long-buried secrets in pursuit of justice, with Cassie additionally grappling with personal problems at home. At the start of the season we’ll see Cassie’s petition to leave the force early and receive her full pension effectively denied. With her father’s increasingly apparent health issues at the forefront of her mind, a bitter Cassie returns to her old stomping grounds, supported by Sunny.”

According to The Killing Times, the mystery plot this season concerns “the discovery of a dismembered body in a scrap metal yard, which the [police] team believe has been stored in a domestic freezer for 30 years. A unique Millwall Football Club tattoo leads to the victim being identified as [Millwall supporter] Matthew Walsh, a young man in his mid-twenties who went missing in March 1990.”

There’s no word yet on when these new episodes of Unforgotten will reach the States, as part of PBS-TV’s Masterpiece series. But if history’s any guide, it could be as early as this coming summer.
