When Will Unforgotten Season 5 Release?
There was a two-year gap between the first three seasons of Unforgotten. However, the gap had elongated to three years between the third and fourth season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It had delayed the premiere date to February 22, 2021. If the show follows its common two-year rule, the series can see a probable Winter 2022 release date.
Chris Lang had soon announced the fifth season, with the production schedule resuming shortly. Given that the production is not delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, it is on track.
Chris Lang had taken to Twitter to tease a few announcements. He announced that Sanjeev Bhaskar would be back with a “new partner in crime.” Once the series airs in the U.K., it will be released shortly in the U.S. on PBS. After season 4 was launched in the U.K., it had arrived on PBS two months later. Each of these seasons in the show had consisted of six episodes, and the upcoming season is likely to follow suit. However, as Lang has teased the release of season 5 this year, it will not be a long wait till it arrives.
Who Be Will In The Cast Of Season 5?
After the death of Cassie in the fourth season, as she suffered a brain injury due to a car crash, Nicola Walker exited the show. Thus, in season 5, she will not return to the role of DCI Cassandra Stuart. Sanjeev Bhaskar will again play the lead role of DI Sunil Khan or Sunny.
A new ‘partner in crime’ will be joining him. However, it has not yet been revealed who will be replacing Cassie in the forthcoming season.

What Is The Plot For Season 5?
