Lifetime has renewed its scripted drama series UnREAL for a second season with a 10-episode pickup that will air next year.
UnREAL, which stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program. The first three episodes are averaging more than 4.8 million views across all available platforms, which isn’t surprising considering it’s Lifetime’s youngest scripted series ever.
“We couldn’t be more proud to bring back UnREAL,” said Liz Gateley, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming for Lifetime. “With authentically flawed characters, sharp storytelling and impeccable performances, this show is propelling our brand in a truly exciting direction – an unexpected and bolder Lifetime. We are thrilled to continue our work with Marti and Sarah and the incredible A+E Studios team, as we together bring a new generation of viewers to Lifetime.”
UnREAL is one of the best shows on television this summer, so you better start watching.
The series airs Mondays at 10:00pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
