Forever was a crime drama series that aired on ABC from 2014-2015. The series starred the talented actor, Ioan Gruffudd as Dr. Henry Morgan, a medical examiner who had a peculiar quirk. He was immortal, and he had been alive for over 200 years. Dr. Morgan had spent his entire life studying the science of death, and after discovering that he could not die, he decided to use his abilities to assist the New York City Police Department. He teamed up with Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza), a skeptic who was initially against working with him but eventually warmed up to Dr. Morgan over time.
Judd Hirsch portrayed Abe, Dr. Morgan's confidante and closest friend, who was aware of Dr. Morgan's immortality and served as his confidante. Joel Moore played Lucas, Morgan's assistant, who was fascinated by his boss's scientific discovery. Lorraine Toussaint portrayed Lt. Joanne Reece, the tough-as-nails police officer who was in charge of the homicide division.
As the series progressed, the audience was taken on a journey through Henry Morgan's past, with the help of flashbacks that showed his various lives over the years. The show also had cases-of-the-week where Dr. Morgan would use his knowledge and expertise in the field of forensics to solve murders.
The show quickly gained a cult following, with fans being drawn to Ioan Gruffudd's charismatic performance as Dr. Henry Morgan. The character of Dr. Morgan, who had lived through so much, had a different perspective on life and death than the other characters in the show, which was a refreshing take on the crime procedural genre.
Forever was a show that explored the themes of life, death, and the legacy we leave behind. The series tackled these themes in a unique way, with Dr. Morgan's immortality acting as a metaphor for our limited time on this earth. The show also explored the concept of family, with Dr. Morgan's relationship with Abe and Jo serving as a focal point of the series.
While the show was a hit with fans, it ultimately only lasted for one season, with ABC canceling it after its first season. Despite this, the creators of the show were able to give the show a proper ending, which tied up loose ends.
Overall, Forever was a unique and thought-provoking show that explored the themes of life, death, family, and legacy. With great performances from a talented cast and a tight and engaging storyline, it is no surprise why the show still has a dedicated following years after its cancellation. Fans of the show still hope that one day it will be brought back for another season, so they can continue to follow the journey of Dr. Henry Morgan.
Forever is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (22 episodes). The series first aired on September 22, 2014.
