UnREAL has always been one of my favourite shows, but I felt the love waning a little during season two of the popular series.
I spent all 10 episodes of season one lying in an incredibly uncomfortable position on the couch, jaw grazing the carpet as I watched the likes of Quinn, Rachel, Chet, Jay and Jeremy being truly horrible humans for the first time.
Then somewhere along the way, I’m ashamed to say I drifted out of season two a little, my attention divided between the show and my Instagram feed.
But the second Rachel’s scuffed up converse stepped back onto the Everlasting set for season three, I fell laptop first back into the wonderfully effed up world of UnREAL. Because this show is back with vengeance.
Watch the trailer for UnREAL season three below. Post continues after video.
After a very messy incident – UnREAL fans will know what I’m on about but if you also dipped out of season two, just know it was reeeeally messed up – Shiri Appleby’s Rachel retreated to a simpler life of repentance on a farm. With sheep.
Which is going great, until her former boss Quinn pays her a visit to ask her to return to work on Everlasting.
She agrees, thinking her sense of zen will be able to withstand the pressures of creating reality TV love.
It doesn’t take long for the rush of success and power to lure Rachel back into doing things she deep down knows are wrong.
But remember, I kind of wasn’t paying attention in season two, you say. Do I have to go back and re-watch it before digging into season three?
Short answer, no. Because the latest series stands on its own just fine.
