A&E Resuscitates Unforgettable For Fourth Season

6 February 2015 8:21 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps it should be retitled Unkillable.

After being canceled by CBS, brought back and then canceled again by the same network, Poppy Montgomery-led detective drama Unforgettable is getting a new lease on life courtesy of A&E, which has picked it up for a fourth season.

The series, in which Montgomery plays a detective who remembers everything apart from the day her sister was murdered, first got the ax after one middling season on CBS, but the network decided to bring it back for a second season over the summer, where it thrived for its next two seasons. As part of its move toward louder, more expensive programming like Under the Dome and James Patterson’s Zoo, however, CBS killed the series yet again last October.

A&E will air it as part of its expanding dramatic block, which includes acclaimed Freddie Highmore-Vera Farmiga two-hander Bates Motel »

'Bates Motel' Season 3 Poster: Norman Has Gone Psycho

2 February 2015 5:52 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It seems clear that Bates Motel is moving closer and closer to the events of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, with last month's trailer entitled Becoming Psycho. Today, The Hollywood Reporter has debuted new a new poster for Season 3, which literally shows the word "Psycho" right next to young Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore), as he is being embraced by his loving mother Norma (Vera Farmiga). Of course, we don't necessarily need that overt homage, since Norman looks more psychotic than usual in this poster.

Bates Motel returns for a gripping third season filled with family strife, murder and mystery lead by Vera Farmiga (Norma) and Freddie Highmore (Norman). This season focuses on the evolution of the Bates family and dives head first into Norman's waning ability to stay in denial about what's happening to him and the lengths he will go to gain control of his fragile psyche.
