Fans can binge all 10 episodes of spinoff web series “The Faith Diaries” at mylifetime.com. Written and produced by “UnReal” co-creator/executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, the new series focuses on Faith (Breeda Wool) from Season 1 and her girlfriend as they begin to pursue their Hollywood dreams.
“UnReal” (co-created by Shapiro and Marti Noxon) promises to stir up the drama this summer when “Everlasting” casts its first-ever African American suitor. In our recent webchat with Zimmer, she gave us an exciting tease about the upcoming second season that goes “darker and further than we went in Season 1.” Watch our entire interview below.
Lifetime also announced today the return of “Devious Maids,” which will air at 9 p.m. PT on June 6 just before the premiere of “UnReal” at 10 p.m. Ten episodes of each show will air throughout the summer.
