Lifetime Renews 'UnREAL' for Second Season
Lifetime is getting ready for more UnREAL. After airing just five episodes of the freshman drama, the cable network has handed out a sophomore renewal of 10 episodes set for 2016.
Co-created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, the series is averaging nearly 5 million viewers across platforms and recently nabbed a Most Exciting New Series nom at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards
The drama stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer as producers of a Bachelor-esque dating competition, Everlasting, and offers a chaotic (if fictional) look behind the scenes of a major reality show.
