La La Anthony, Ashanti, E.J. Bonilla Join Cast of A&E's Crime Drama 'Unforgettable'

A&E Network presents season four of scripted crime drama “Unforgettable,” following NYPD Detective Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), who has a rare memory condition, hyperthymesia, which she utilizes to solve some of New York’s most dangerous crimes. Although at times her gift can be a struggle, her memory has been imperative in helping her and partner Al Burns (Dylan Walsh) maintain a 100% clearance rate on a staggering number of criminal cases. 

This season the Major Crimes team gets a makeover with newcomers Alani “La La” Anthony as flashy medical examiner Delina Michaels, Ashanti as Stella, a gorgeous jazz singer caught up in the underbelly of NYC’s music scene, who catches the eye of Al, Kathy Najimy as Captain Sandra Russo, the team’s new boss, and E.J. Bonilla as young, wisecracking Detective “Denny” Padilla who has a penchant for Carrie, much to the dismay of Al.  

Additional players include Skeet Ulrich as Carrie’s mysterious long lost husband Eddie Martin and comedienne Rachel Dratch as Rosie Webb, the patience-testing star witness in a high-profile securities fraud case whom Carrie and Al are tasked with safely delivering to Miami. 

Series regular James Hiroyuki Liao returns as Major Crimes team member Jay Lee.

“Unforgettable” is produced by Timberman-Beverly Producti

The new season premieres with back-to-back episodes on Friday, November 13 at 8PM ET/PT and 9PM ET/PT on A&E for a 13-episode run.

In the premiere episode, “Unforgettable” returns with the enigmatic Carrie Wells on a career high, making headlines as New York’s most decorated cop.  Reveling in her recent successes will prove to be short-lived for Carrie.  Armed with her unique ability and backed up by those she trusts the most, Carrie will face some of the most challenging cases of her career this season, with each case becoming more memorable than the last.
