The drama's final episodes have been released on Hulu.
July 16, 2018
In a surprise announcement this morning, Hulu revealed that UnREAL will not be returning for a fifth season. At the same time, the streamer also released the drama's fourth and final season as part of a previously-announced deal that moves the show from Lifetime to Hulu for first-run episodes.
Fans without a Hulu subscription are out of luck for now, however, as there is no official confirmation on when the eight-episode final season of UnREAL will air on Lifetime - if at all. If it does return to cable, Season 4 likely won't premiere until sometime next year.
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.
The series earned much critical acclaim over the course of its run, though ratings were never its strong suit. The show's juicy storylines did make it a favorite among binge-watchers, who got caught up via streaming video-on-demand services by consuming multiple episodes at a time.
What does HULU have to do with UnReal? Season 3 wrapped up on Lifetime on 4/23/18. I missed the announcement that season 4 was released on HULU. When did that happen? Did season 4 air any episodes on Lifetime?
I do have Hulu because I LOVE paying a couple of extra bucks to get current season shows without commercials. (Seriously) Streaming services are getting out of control though. I was trying to convince myself to spring for Acorn TV because they carry a lot I enjoy, and it is inexpensive. Then Britbox appeared and the British shows were split between streaming services. Annoying!
Get a trial of HULU if you just want to watch Unreal. Just be sure to do your research so you are ready to binge anything you want to watch before you cancel your membership!
