From Co-Creators Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, and starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, the provocative drama UnREAL 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.

- UnReal Season 2 Review by Regina
While the second season isn’t as good as the first one, UnREAL doesn’t shy away from taking the drama to the next level. This season sees producers Rachel and Quinn, beautifully and convincingly acted by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, recruiting an African-American football player to be their first diverse suitor in Everlasting, a The Bachelor-esque dating show.
In a way, it’s practically watching Murphy’s law play out on screen: anything that can go wrong, does go wrong. It’s drama all the way.
3) “You would enjoy this series if…”
You enjoy watching drama on screen.
You’re curious about the inner workings of a reality dating show.
4) “This series made me think…”
About whether or not it was actually as close to real life as some news stories make it sound.
5) Overall rating?
3.5 stars. (Posted on 2/02/2017)
