UnReal: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

UnReal: Season 2 (2016)




Critic Consensus: UnREAL is smarter, more shameless, and more confident in its thrilling and riveting second season.


Tv Season Info

In Season 2 of the drama series, the show-within-the-show "Everlasting" features Darius Beck (B.J. Britt), a famous black NFL quarterback, as the eligible bachelor. It's clear from the beginning that race will play a big role in the show, especially when the contestants include a woman who wears a Confederate flag bikini and an African-American activist. Meanwhile, showrunner Rachel (Shiri Appleby) and producer Quinn (Constance Zimmer) start butting heads when their new division of responsibilities falls apart.

The claws are already out and it's only been one episode.

Often uncomfortable to watch, sometimes hilarious soap opera, UnREAL is also both intelligent and thought-provoking, one of TV's smartest and most cynical shows.

June 7, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

This is what UnREAL is: uncomfortable, unexpected, confidently noncompliant television.

UnREAL, the series determined to wring the romance out of reality dating shows, may spoil the hedonistic pleasure one gets from watching The Bachelorette. It's worth the risk.

June 5, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Whip-smart and skintight, Season 2 clicks like clockwork. You're appalled, you're LOL, you can't wait to see next week.

Audience Reviews for UnReal: Season 2

Unreal is even more addictive than season 1 with the new characters and development of the old, this is drama done well.


Super Reviewer

Incredibly outrageous and daring, Season 2 of UnReal gets even more salacious and provocative. After being promoted to showrunner Rachel makes Everlasting history by choosing a black suitor for the show, but when the creators start fighting over the show's direction chaos erupts; causing the network to bring someone new in to run things. The writers do a great job at building intention and at delivering shocking plot twists. And there are some interesting character developments among the main cast, who all deliver excellent performances. Yet at times the episodes can be a little uneven, with some contrived plot turns. Still, while it has a few rough patches, Season 2 of UnReal is extraordinarily compelling and edgy.
