You asked for it, you got it. After fans wondered if we’d ever see a female suitor on “UnReal,” stars Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer have confirmed that, yes, Season 3 of Lifetime’s Emmy-nominated drama will go full-“Bachelorette” next year. There’s no premiere date yet for Season 3, but it’s likely the show will once again come out in June during the hot days of summer. Are you on board with this decision to revamp the show by having a female suitor? Vote in our new poll below.
With Season 1 focusing on a British playboy (Freddie Stroma) and Season 2 introducing a black heartthrob (B. J. Britt), it was only a matter of time before the show-within-a-show cast a female in the role of the suitor. This decision ensures that the dynamic of “UnReal” will change from the ground up, as there will now be a plethora of eligible young bachelors vying for the attention of one woman. Might Appleby’s Rachel or Zimmer’s Quinn be able to resist the urge of all that male testosterone?
Zimmer, who says she’s happy that “We’re going to add a third [female lead],” is coming off her first career nomination at the Emmy Awards and is now a contender to earn a Golden Globe bid. According to Gold Derby’s combined predictions, Zimmer is in second place to win Best TV Supporting Actress with odds of 9/2, behind only frontrunner Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) with 21/20 odds.
