'UnREAL' Renewed for Third Season Ahead of Season 2 Premiere
By Philiana Ng
Lifetime is in love with UnREAL.
Less than a week before UnREAL returns for its second season, fans of the soapy hit got an early Christmas present: The critically-acclaimed drama, led by Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby, will return for a 10-episode third season to debut in 2017.
UnREAL took the TV world by storm last summer, brilliantly depicting the cutthroat, behind-the-scenes drama of a fictional dating competition series, Everlasting. It took home several key honors, including the Peabody Award and was one of 10 shows included on AFI’s Television Programs of the Year.
“It’s blowing my mind shooting it,” the actress, who plays TV producer Rachel, told ET in March. “I can’t believe I’m standing and it’s only Week 3. If that’s any indication for what’s in store for the audience, this actress is about to fall over.”
