ITV drama Unforgotten returns for a highly anticipated fourth season on Monday.
Fans can’t wait to pick up where they left off with DCI Cassie Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DI Sunny Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar).
Unforgotten’s final season ended in August 2018, meaning it has been well over two years since Cassie and Sunny’s last adventure.
In the BAFTA winning series, the detective duo will commit another murder case in the capital.
In the fourth series, the detectives will discover a dismembered corpse that was believed to have been kept in a freezer for three decades.

The writers decided it would be good to take a break to recharge before filming the show again, so they didn’t start producing the fourth series until January 2020.
And then, 11 weeks after filming began, there was a suspension.
It wasn’t until September that they returned to finish filming, and Cambridgeshire Live Reports Bhaskar said, “Having six months off and then playing again under such varied conditions has been the biggest challenge in making Unforgots.”
There were many restrictions and guidelines in place so they were sure they could all work safely, but the ongoing effects of Covid-19 were evident.
What happened last season?
Spoiler mentioned below.
The third season revolved around the case of Hayley Reid (Bronagh Waugh), a 16-year-old who was murdered in 1999.
The child’s body was found on the side of the M1 motorway after disappearing en route to a party on New Year’s Eve.
Four suspects were found in the frame during the season, including drug addict Elliot Hollis (Thom Rhys Harries) and his father (Kevin McNally), Peter Carr (Neil Morrissey) and Chris Lowe (James Fleet).
However, none of the four were responsible, and Dr. Tim Finch (Alex Jennings) ultimately turned out to be a murderer.
