Set against the backdrop of the hit dating competition show Everlasting, UnREAL is led by flawed heroine Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby), who serves as a lead 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 (Constance 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.
This season, Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) takes the reins as Everlasting's female "suitress," Serena.
Determined to have her pick of eager male suitors, Serena will face off with Everlasting's queen bees, producers Rachel and Quinn, who are shaking things up all for the sake of ratings.
The ladies will be tempted more than ever when they're surrounded by hot new suitors including Bart Edwards (Peep Show), Alex Hernandez (Chicago Med), Adam Demos (Aboriginal Heart) and Alex Sparrow (Dancing with the Stars).
Craig Bierko (Everlasting's creator, Chet), Josh Kelly (Jeremy, Everlasting's DP and Rachel's ex), Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman and Genevieve Buchner (Everlasting producers Jay and Madison) are all set to return.
Brandon Jay McLaren (The Killing) joins the cast as the on-set psychologist, Dr. Simon; Kassandra Clementi (Hatfields & McCoys) appears as Chet's new girlfriend, Crystal; Chelsea Hobbs (Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce) is Charlie, a talented new camera assistant; and Jaime Callica (Wayward Pines) is Xavier, a dancer and Jay's love interest.
UnREAL is executive produced by Shapiro and Stacy Rukeyser, who serves as showrunner. Robert M. Sertner, Sally DeSipio, Peter O'Fallon and David Solomon also executive produce, and Noxon serves as consulting producer.
