‘UnReal’ Season 2: Quinn and Rachel’s Love Interests Revealed — Plus Details on Freddie Stroma’s Return

UnReal,” Lifetime’s dark comedy that’s set in the fictional world of a reality dating show, “Everlasting,” returns tonight with its second season.

The show re-sets each season, introducing a new suitor and new cast of contestants, while keeping cutthroat producers Quinn and Rachel, played by Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby, at the forefront.

For the first season, Freddie Stroma played suitor Adam Cromwell, but even though there’s a new leading man on board for season two — Darius Hill, “Everlasting’s” first-ever black suitor, played by B.J. Britt — Stroma will still find his way into “UnReal’s” second season.

“I’m basically there to stir things up,” Stroma said this weekend at the series’ For Your Consideration panel in Hollywood, Calif., where his “UnReal” co-star and real-life fiance Johanna Braddy sat in the audience.

Exec producers Stacy Rukeyser, Robert M. Sertner and co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro confirmed that Stroma will be back, and teased that his return will shake up the world of Rachel (Appleby) — who also has a new love interest this season (played by Michael Rady) — but they stayed mum on details.

While the panelists did not reveal how many episodes Stroma will be seen in, they did say viewers be seeing a lot of him. Literally.

“You might see a little bit more of me than you should,” Stroma said with a laugh, teasing much nudity in Season 2.

As for Rachel’s aforementioned love interest, Shapiro dished a few details.

“A new producer comes on the set,” Shapiro said. “He’s very handsome. And he’s Jewish. She’s a nice Jewish girl, he’s a nice Jewish boy.”

Zimmer chimed in: “Quinn hates him.”

However, Rachel isn’t the only producer who’s making time for romance this season.

“Quinn gets some action. Quinn’s not going to let Rachel have all the fun,” Shapiro says, confirming that new cast member Ioan Gruffudd will be playing Quinn’s romantic interest.

While the panel opted not to reveal any more details on the new love interests, speaking of Gruffudd’s character, tech billionaire John Booth, Zimmer said, “It’s definitely a color in Quinn that you’ve never seen before.”
