UnREAL Renewed for Season 3 Ahead of Season 2 Premiere


Last summer, Lifetime’s freshman drama UnREAL received a great deal of acclaim from critics, but it didn’t bring in huge ratings, worrying some fans that the network may cancel the show before it ultimate gave it a second-season order. However, this time around Lifetime is easing viewers minds, renewing UnREAL for a third season just days ahead of the Bachelor-skewering series’ Season 2 premiere.

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.”

As stated above, UnREAL stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer. Season 2 of the series, which kicks off this coming Monday, June 6, adds a new costar with Agents of SHIELD‘s B.J. Britt joining the show was football star Darius Hill, Everlasting‘s first-ever African-American bachelor. Plus, Craig Bierko (Chet), Josh Kelly (Jeremy) and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (Jay) will all be back in UnREAL Season 2 as series regulars.

UnREAL fans, how happy does this renewal news make you, and how excited are you for Monday’s premiere? Comment below and let us know.
