How to watch Unforgotten season 5 in the US 

We still haven't had a confirmed US release date for Unforgotten season 5. Our best guess is still that the series will be airing on PBS Masterpiece later in 2023, as that's where previous seasons have landed. 

We'd guess it will air sometime in the summer, based on what happened last time around; season 4 hit PBS in June 2021, two months after the fourth season wrapped up in the UK. As and when we get a more official release date, we'll be sure to include it here.
