Unforgotten Season 5 Plot
In the latest season, we saw Sunny Khan and Cassie Stuart investigate a decades-old case about a young man’s dismembered body being found in a scrap metal yard. However, the shocking part was that the body had been preserved in a private freezer since 1990. Consequently, as the investigation proceeded, we saw the psychological toll it took on everyone involved. Moreover, the fourth season also highlighted the importance of the police force as an institution. So, if the show does get renewed for a fifth season, the fans will definitely get a new journey of the DI Sunny Khan investigating yet another cold case but this time with a new partner since Nicola Walker has bid farewell to the series. As of now, no official trailer for the fifth season has been released but you can expect a trailer by early 2022.
