Last summer’s breakout hit UnReal returns tonight on Lifetime at 10:00 pm with the Season 2 premiere “War” that’s sure to get fans talking! Check out a sneak peek with official photos from the UnReal season premiere, featuring the new bachelor and a host of thirsty beautiful women looking to win his heart!
Co-created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, UnReal gives a fictitious behind- the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program,Everlasting. Having already tackled relevant matters of gender politics, the series, starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer as producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King, will stir up the drama in season two when Everlasting casts its first-ever African American suitor.
Set against the backdrop of the hit dating competition show Everlasting, Season 2 of UnReal is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg (Appleby), who returns as supervising producer, renowned for her skills manipulating her relationships with, and among, the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage that the program’s dispassionate executive producer, Quinn King (Zimmer), demands. What ensues once again is an eye-opening look at what happens in the outrageous world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and being a producer is a whole other reality.
Returning as series regulars are Craig Bierko as Everlasting’s creator, Chet, who is on a quest to reclaim his full power on set; Josh Kelly as Jeremy, Rachel’s ex-boyfriend and Everlasting’s director of photography; and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman as Jay, a field producer whose ambitions run far beyond the show. Everlasting’s new suitor Darius Hill, an All-American football star, will be played by B.J. Britt.
Soap opera fans will recognize One Life to Live alum Josh Kelly (Cutter) and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Kim Matula (Hope) in the gallery below.
