At first glance, detective Cassie Stuart is an ordinary single woman. She cries on the shoulder of her own father, leads a calm, measured life and tries not to pay attention to everyday failures. But as soon as she crosses the threshold of the police office, her life changes dramatically. After all, the internal code makes her more sincere and more humane than her colleagues.
“Unforgotten ss 5”: release date, announcement
It is currently known that the filming of the 5th season of the crime drama “Unforgotten” started in March 2022. This means that before the beginning of 2023, the premiere of new episodes is unlikely to take place. We continue to follow the news.
Stewart is responsible for her work and tries to solve every case she gets. Together with her partner Sunny Khan, over whom she loves to joke, Cassie confidently takes on new cases. One day she has to face a crime that expired many years ago. Trying to find the culprit, she plunges into the abyss of understatement.
During the demolition of a house in north London, builders discover the bones of a man who have been lying there for a long time. Sunny arrives at the scene with Cassie. They are trying to find at least approximate facts that will help them identify the deceased. The death was violent and soon the medical examiner confirms this with documents.
Colleagues laugh at Cassie, clinging to an old case, but she believes that the murder of a person has no statute of limitations. The woman intends to find the murderer of the unknown and punish him according to the law. It soon becomes known that the remains of the bones belong to a 17-year-old boy named James Sullivan. He just graduated from high school, after which he disappeared.
With the help of modern technology, evidence is found that can help in the investigation. The first of them turns out to be a notebook, which gave the name of the victim. It contained the numbers of several people, whose fate was told in parallel with the actions of the police. Some of them can certainly provide assistance in catching the criminal …
Each season is a new story that proves to the viewer that there are good cops, whose actions are able to find the killer even after decades. Cassie proudly justifies her title of detective and does not forget about her personal life, which is much more difficult than her everyday life with hardened criminals.
