UnREAL season 3 trailer: See Caitlin Fitzgerald as new suitor!
The first UnREAL season 3 trailer is here via Lifetime, and it shows that this season will be as crazy and chaotic as ever. Oh, and there will also be plenty of fun to go along with it.
For this season, it looks as though one of the main focuses is going to be restoring the show back to the sense of fun that you saw during the first season — however long that lasts remains to be seen, but it will be fun for a little while. This is the show that mixes that with the drama, which come via various production problems and calamities. Because of what Rachel and Quinn are doing as producers one of the things that, consistently, you’re going to see is drama within the show-within-a-show Everlasting. This is precisely what they want, and with that, we’re going to have plenty of it.
The main difference between this show and the first two is that you’ve got a female suitor this time played by Masters of Sex alum Caitlin Fitzgerald, someone who comes into this show with so many qualifications that remind us more or less that she is way too good to be doing something like a hokey reality show. Yet, here she is, and she will have her pick of a number of different men — some of them meatheads, but almost all of them with abs. Everlasting is going to be every bit as vapid casting some of these dudes as they were with the women the first two seasons of the show. There will be some great contenders, but there will be a few others who are there mostly for the purpose of being eye candy. This show will explore some of these casting archetypes while intentionally throwing these contestants through hell and trying to ruin their lives after the show.
Will we see in the process the lives of Rachel and Quinn ruined? They seem to be having fun in the trailer at times, but it’s only a matter of time before the tables inevitably turn and they find themselves the focus of some unwanted attention. With this show it always seems to happen.
UnREAL season 3 is going to premiere officially on February 26, which means that (unfortunately) we are still more than four months away from the show returning. The silver lining that comes there is that when the show does come back on the air we’re going to get a chance to see some more of the show right around the time that The Bachelor is going full gear. That should mean even more publicity for this show.

If they won’t leave Everlasting in the dust and go in a different direction then I’ll settle for a season 3 that looks and feels like season 1. Season 2 was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen on TV. It’s a shame because season 1 was one of the best. They have a lot of work to do to get back on track. I don’t care who the suitor/suitress is as long as they give them a good story line with lots of dialog and not make them filler/background. The whole rape story line in my opinion was lazy writing. The whole Black Lives Matter ripped from the headlines story line did not belong on UnREAL. Neither did the cheesy soap opera car crash. They need to stick to making a reality dating TV show. Stop trying so hard to compete with ABC or HBO/Showtime or any other show/network. Just be yourself. I think the small success of season one got to the show runner/writers head. I hope season 2 was a sophomore slump and this show does not become a one hit wonder.

ITA 110% with everything you said TV Watcher. I’ll add some of my own thoughts about season 3. I want to see more screen time for Jay and Maddison. Can either of them find love this season? Rachel should focus on her career and get her life in order. Why does she need a new love interest Every season? Save the love interest for Jay and Maddison. As for Quinn not every successful middle age woman wants kids. I don’t know why they felt the need to bring that storyline up out of nowhere. It didn’t work for me. If we found out that the Madison turned out to be Quinns or Chet’s kid then that might’ve worked better. Her one liners are also getting played out pretty fast. There not funny and memorable anymore. I do think that with some tweaking they can get back on track. All they need to do is just rewatch season one find out what worked and continue doing that. I would love it if they pretended like season 2 never happened. However I know that will not happen. There’s no need to rehash bad story lines. Just forget about them. I think in season 3 we’re going to learn that men are boring and women smart. Will the guilty pleasure summer show do better paired up with a new show in the winter or will the move hurt the show even more? Regardleless I can’t wait for the new season to air.
