Unforgettable is officially getting a second chance on CBS.
The network has revived the canceled freshman drama for a 13-episode second season, slated to air in the summer of 2013, TVGuide.com has confirmed. CBS first tweeted the news Friday evening.
The procedural, starring Poppy Montgomery as a detective who has the ability to remember everything, was canceled in May despite steady ratings; it averaged 11 million viewers and a 2.5 in the adults 18-to-49 demo in its first season.
CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler later said that the cancellation was a "difficult" decision that was made after looking at the network's pilots. "I don't know if it's what went wrong [with Unforgettable]. It was more about what went right with the new pilots," she said.
