UnREAL has been renewed for a third season ahead of its second season debut.
The series which dissects the backstage antics of a Bachelor-style show known as ‘Everlasting’, returns next week.
US cable network Lifetime has ordered a further 10 episodes for its third season.
“UnREAL is that rare series that redefines a network. It not only reflects culture, but pushes culture forward by creating television’s first female antihero,” Lifetime exec Liz Gateley said in a statement.
“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 three while continuing our work with the incredible A+E Studios as we together build Lifetime’s Fempire.”
Season 2 begins in Australia on Stan next Tuesday with returning cast Constance Zimmer, Shiri Appleby, Craig Bierko, Josh Kelly and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, plus B.J. Britt, who will play this season’s newest ‘bachelor’, football star Darius Hill.
