The show is only just wrapping up its fourth outing, so it is still very early days for a series renewal to be announced.

If Unforgotten is given the green light by ITV, following on from the release pattern of the previous four seasons, Unforgotten season five may arrive in 2023 at the latest.

There has been a two-year gap between each season of Unforgotten so far, the first arriving in 2015 and the fourth in 2021.

Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.

The fourth series saw Cassie and Sunny investigate a murder that occurred 30 years ago after they came across a headless and handless body in a North London scrapyard.

Following the events of season three, Cassie wanted to retire but was forced back into work at the beginning of series four.

She was also involved in a serious car crash at the end of episode five of series four, which may put her career on the line.

Ever since, fans have been worried Cassie would retire for good, which may put the future of Unforgotten in jeopardy.

Sadly, Cassie died in the season four finale of Unforgotten.

Writer Chris Lang tweeted: “It has been an uncomplicated joy making 4 seasons of #Unforgotten with #NicolaWalker.

“We can be sad that we’ve lost someone we adored & who we will miss every day, but we also be grateful for the time we did have together. More news on #Unforgotten to follow shortly.”

Actress Nicola Walker tweeted: “Over & Out for Cassie…#unforgotten.”

Fans have been taking to Twitter to share their sadness online.

One fan tweeted: “I’m devastated and I’m gonna need therapy. And it’s all your fault. (Bloody brilliant again though! You and everyone involved with the show deserve all the awards) Right, I’m off to drown me’sel in brews and biscuits.”

A second fan said: “Nooooooooo. Seriously though. Outstanding in every way. Everyone connected to this project and all those that went before it should be so proud in the parts they’ve played in bringing such compelling dramatic stories to life.”

A third viewer added: “Superb writing, superb acting, I think we felt like we knew the characters on a personal level which made the death of Cassie very tough and emotional. #Unforgotten is one of the best TV dramas.”

There is always the possibility Unforgotten could continue with a new DCI.

There is plenty of scope for Unforgotten to return, considering the series huge fan base and critical praise.

Unforgotten has also received high ratings, so much show creator Chris Lang took to Twitter to thank fans.

He said: “Delighted to hear, at the final tally, that ep 1 of #Unforgotten was watched by 9.5m.

“Thnx so much to everyone who has watched since season 1, but also to the new audience, who found the show on Netflix, Amazon Prime, PBS…or wherever – we love you all!”

Sanjeev Bhaskar, who plays Sunny Khan, replied: “Hear hear. What an extraordinary warm, generous and interactive audience you are as well. And smart. And damn good looking! And intensely fragrant.”

Each season of Unforgotten follows DCI Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Stuart (Nicola Walker) and DS Sunil ‘Suny’ Khan (Sanjeev Bhaskar) solve a new case, so the majority of the show’s future will be in the hands of creator and writer Chris Lang.

Unforgotten also introduces new characters every season alongside the show’s main cast, so there is plenty of opportunities for the series to continue.

Goodness Gracious Me actor Sanjeev Bhaskar will also hopefully be back as DI Sunil ‘Sunny’ Khan.

Fans can also expect to see Lewis Reeves return as DC Jake Collier and Peter Egan as Martin Hughes.

Other regular cast members fans are likely to see in season five include Jassa Ahluwalia as Adam Stuart and Colin R. Campbell as DSI Clive Andrews, DCI Stuart’s boss.
