Lifetime has made another date with UnREAL, renewing the acclaimed drama for a 10-episode Season 3 — days ahead of its sophomore premiere.
Season 2 debuts Monday, June 6 at 10/9c, this year costarring B.J. Britt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Everlasting‘s first-ever African-American suitor, football star Darius Hill. In addition to leads Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, returning series regulars include Craig Bierko (as Chet), Josh Kelly (Rachel’s ex, Jeremy) and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (field producer Jay).
“UnREAL is that rare series that redefines a network,” Lifetime EVP Liz Gateley said in a statement. “It not only reflects culture, but pushes culture forward by creating television’s first female antihero. The overwhelming fan and critical reaction set the bar incredibly high, but the writers and executive producing team, coupled with the outstanding performances by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, have taken the second season to even greater creative heights. We are thrilled about the new ground we will break with Season 3 while continuing our work with the incredible A+E Studios as we together build Lifetime’s Fempire.”
A delicious dissection of TV’s tawdry “dating” series, UnREAL in Season 1 averaged 700,000 weekly viewers, a tally that swelled to 3.7 million views per episode across all platforms.
