A show may be renewed or brought back into production after being canceled on occasion. Unforgettable, a CBS crime drama that was canceled in 2012 but resurrected in the summer of 2013, was one example. Occasionally, a network will opt to air a show that was previously canceled by another network.
Low viewership or listenership leads to lower advertising or subscription revenue, pushing networks to replace it with another show that has a better chance of making a profit. A disproportionately large budget is also possibly unfavorable.
Unfavorable critical reviews, disputes surrounding the show’s cast, conflicts among the show’s staff members, or the need to create a place for new programming are all possible causes for terminating television shows.
Unforgettable is a CBS drama series about a police investigation that began on September 20, 2011. Unforgettable stars Poppy Montgomery as Detective Carrie Wells, a police detective with an extremely precise and photographic memory, and was created by Ed Redlich and John Bellucci.
Unforgettable was renewed for a fourth season by A&E after being canceled twice by CBS. On November 27, 2015, the season debuted with two back-to-back episodes. The show was canceled by A&E in February 2016.
Unforgettable was canceled by CBS on May 13, 2012. TNT and Lifetime both indicated an interest in picking up the project, however, the series was ultimately turned down. CBS reversed course on June 29, 2012, announcing that Unforgettable would return for a second season in summer 2013, with a 13-episode order, seven of which were broadcast in 2013.
The second season premiered on July 28 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern / 8:00 p.m. Central. Unforgettable was renewed for a third season by CBS on September 27, 2013, with 13 episodes set to broadcast in summer 2014. On Friday, April 4, 2014, at 8:00 p.m. EDT, the second season’s broadcast resumed.
