The new six-part story will see DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan, played by Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, delve into another intricate historical investigation, revealing a fresh web of long-buried secrets.

Writer Chris Lang commented: “I am so excited to be making a third series of Unforgotten. To be able to bring back the exceptional team we had on series two (both in front of and behind the camera) and to be allowed to discover what the future holds for Cassie and Sunny as they tackle a new historical crime, is a real privilege.”

ITV’s Senior Drama Commissioner, Victoria Fea said: “Unforgotten is a wonderfully rich piece of work,  made with understated brilliance, and we’re delighted to commission a third series from Mainstreet Pictures. Chris Lang’s writing is perceptive, surprising and humane, and we have no doubt its fans will relish watching a new story unfold.”

Executive producer Sally Haynes added: “We are incredibly happy to be making Unforgotten series 3 for ITV. It is fantastic it has struck such a chord with the audience.”
