Basic info and plot

Created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, UnREAL is an American dark comedy television series that follows the life of a young manipulative reality television producer, whose main job is to create drama on TV. The series is produced by Wieden+Kennedy Entertainment, and executive produced by Marti Noxon, Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, Robert M. Sertner, Sally DeSipio, Peter O`Fallon, Bill Davenport, Carol Barbee and Adam Kane. UnREAL Season 1 premiered on Lifetime on June 1, 2015, and the 10-episode second season of critically acclaimed series debuted on June 6, 2016.

Rachel Goldberg is a producer of the popular dating show Everlasting and is responsible for anything and everything that has to do with the show. Her boss, executive producer Quinn King, is demanding and stringent, with a very clear vision of how much drama there needs to be on their series. It is Rachel’s duty to manipulate the relationships of the Everlasting contenders to create the outrageous drama that will match Quinn’s vision.

Ratings, reviews and possible renewal

A scripted series about the making of a reality series? Yes, and not just a hilarious one, but one honored by the American Film Institute as Television Program of the Year and a three-times nominee for Critics` Choice Awards! With just as much drama on the set of Everlasting as there is off it, UnREAL embraces the insanity of a reality television series production set. Well-written, witty and hilarious, the series received ratings of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes and 7.4 out of 10 on IMDb. The second season ratings, however, are not as impressive as those of the premiere installment – three episodes are averaging slightly below 0.5 million viewers. In any case, we already know that in early June 2016 Lifetime has renewed UnREAL for a third season ahead of the second season premiere. The upcoming season will contain 10 episodes and is scheduled to air in 2017. Stay tuned for release dates.
