Meet Everlasting contestant, Yael (Monica Barbaro). Rachel (Appleby) and Quinn (Zimmer) are especially glad to have her on the show.
In its second season, UnREAL has managed to do something that ABC‘s The Bachelor hasn’t accomplished in 20 seasons. It has cast a black bachelor, or in UnREAL/Everlasting parlance, a black “suitor.” Watch the teaser.
Read more about the second season of UnREAL, from Lifetime.
From Co-Creators Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, and starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, the provocative drama gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program.
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, 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.
Premiering Monday, June 6, at 10pm ET/PT.
