The series aired on CBS from 5 May 1992 to 17 May 1996, broadcasting three seasons and a total of 70 episodes. There were no new episodes shown during the entire 1993–94 TV season. The show is an adaptation of a made-for-television film, Nick Knight, which premiered on 20 August 1989. CBS initially declined to option the film for a television series. In the summer of 1992, the series was picked up with all but one of the actors[1] being replaced and the storyline for the film acting as the first two episodes of the series.[2] Forever Knight follows the life of Nick Knight (Geraint Wyn Davies), an 800-year-old vampire who works as a police detective in modern-day Toronto, seeking redemption for the lives he has taken over the years and struggling for a way to become mortal again.
