The writing had been on the wall for the series. Earlier this year, individuals close to the production told TheWrap that “Unforgettable” was on the bubble, with producer Sony Pictures Television fighting for a fourth season. The third season averaged 6.09 million total viewers and averaged a 0.9 rating in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic.

CBS previously canceled the show after its first season, but then reversed the decision and made it a summer series, where the ratings pressure is less.

The Sept. 14, two-hour Season 3 finale of “Unforgettable” drew a 1.1 rating/3 share in the advertiser demo — even with the previous week and up 38 percent from the previous season finale, though that finale aired on a Friday night, rather than a Sunday, as the Season 3 finale did.

Earlier this week, CBS renewed the summer series “Under the Dome” and “Extant,” while canceling the freshman series “Reckless.”

“Unforgettable” also starred Dylan Walsh and Jane Curtin.
