“UnREAL” season 2 finale brought two happy endings and a deadly cliffhanger.
Warning: The article contains spoilers for the “UnREAL” season 2 finale so read at your own risk.
Despite being at odds with each other throughout most of season 2, Quinn (Constance Zimmer) and Rachel (Shiri Appleby) finally close the distance between them and team up to stop Coleman (Michael Rady) from destroying “Everlasting." Coleman is determined to take down Quinn and “Everlasting” by exposing the dating show’s dirty secrets.
He takes Yael (Monica Barbaro) with him after the end of the show, presumably to confess to faking the documentary and ruin “Everlasting’s” reputation. But he doesn’t succeed in his plan when Jeremy, after finding out about his ex’s rape, takes matters into his own hands.
“I told you I would do anything,” Jeremy tells Rachel later, right before a news report about Coleman and Yael’s car being run off the road appears on screen.
Meanwhile, Darius (B.J. Britt) gets blindsided during the finale night of “Everlasting” when the planned proposal became a wedding ceremony instead.
Quinn told both Tiffany and Chantal that they would be getting married to Darius, so they both wear wedding dresses to the event. A screen dividing the aisle keeps the women from discovering that the other is there until they both get to the altar, and a screaming match unsurprisingly ensues when Tiffany and Chantal find out the truth. But all’s well that ends well when Rachel and Jay manage to reunite Darius with Ruby, who was previously cut from the show.
Darius proposes to Ruby instead, but she turns him down, reasoning that they’ve only known each other for several weeks. However, Ruby tells him she has feelings for him and would like to explore their relationship away from the cameras.
But while Darius and Ruby get their fairytale ending, things are still shaky for the "Everlasting" crew, especially now that they will have to cover up two potential murders.
“That’s going to be something for all of [the characters] to address [next season]," Zimmer told TV Line of the deaths of Coleman and Yael in the "UnREAL" season 2 finale. “Somehow, somebody has to get in trouble. I don’t know how that’s going to happen or if that’s going to happen, but we have to have consequences for our actions.”
No doubt fans will get to see how Quinn, Rachel, Jeremy and the production team will deal with season 2's deadly twist as “UnREAL” has been renewed for a third season.
Lifetime announced that “UnREAL” season 3 is a go ahead of the season 2 premiere back in June, Variety reported.
“‘UnReal’ is that rare series that redefines a network. It not only reflects culture, but pushes culture forward by creating television’s first female antihero. The overwhelming fan and critical reaction set the bar incredibly high, but the writers and executive producing team, coupled with the outstanding performances by Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, have taken the second season to even greater creative heights. We are thrilled about the new ground we will break with season three while continuing our work with the incredible A+E Studios as we together build Lifetime’s Fempire,” stated Liz Gateley, executive vice president and head of programming for Lifetime
“UnREAL” season 3 is set to premiere in 2017 and will have 10 episodes.
