Filming begins this month on the highly-anticipated third series of ITV and Mainstreet Pictures’ compelling crime drama, Unforgotten.
“We are delighted to once again welcome such a fantastic cast of hugely talented actors to join Nicola and Sanjeev for the third series of Unforgotten. Chris Lang’s complex and intricate scripts get better and better each year, and the new story is no exception.” – Executive Producers and Managing Directors of Mainstreet Pictures Sally Haynes and Laura Mackie
Created and written by Chris Lang, the new six-part series sees the return of BAFTA nominee Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan as they investigate another emotionally-charged cold case.
The pair will be joined for the series by Alex Jennings, Kevin R McNally, Neil Morrissey and James Fleet who play a close-knit group of old school friends that have stood by one another through thick and thin.
However, when the body of a teenage girl who went missing at the turn of the millennium is found at a building site off the M1 motorway, the four men are placed under the spotlight and their relationships are tested to the limit.
Set across the south of England in locations including Norfolk, West Sussex, Bristol, Hampshire and London, the new series will explore how everyday lives can be fractured and destroyed by one event, showing that appearances can often be deceiving.
Series two recorded an average consolidated viewing figure of over 6million with a 21% share.
“[In this series] we also delve deeper into Sunny and Cassie’s own personal lives… experiencing the effects that the cases have on their own relationships and wellbeing.” – Executive Producers and Managing Directors of Mainstreet Pictures Sally Haynes and Laura Mackie
