Lifetime announced today that UnREAL has been renewed for a fourth season. The good news comes rather early, as Season 3 of the drama has yet to confirm a premiere date after recently being delayed until 2018.
The show is coming off two successful 10-episode seasons, both of which have garnered critical acclaim and healthy viewership for the cable network. Season 3 has already wrapped production, and the delay to next year is said to be related to Lifetime's scheduling preferences for the show.
Inspired by reality series The Bachelor, UnREAL follows the producer of a TV dating competition. As part of her job, she manipulates relationships with, and among, the contestants in order to create the desired chaos and dramatic footage required by the show's producer.
No details are known yet for Season 4, though it likely won't see a premiere until 2019.
