Lifetime has renewed “UnREAL” for Season 4 and “Mary Kills People” for Season 2, the network announced Friday at the TCA summer press tour

“Mary Kills People,” which also returns in early 2018, follows single mother Mary Harris (Caroline Dhavernas), an ER doctor by day, but by night, she and her partner Des (Richard Short), a former plastic surgeon, moonlight as underground angels of death helping terminally ill patients slip away on their own terms. Jay Ryan will return as Ben Wesley.

The series is executive produced by Tassie Cameron, Amy Cameron, Jocelyn Hamilton and Tecca Crosby. It will be directed by Kelly Makin, Norma Bailey and David Wellington with Holly Dale as co-executive producer. Tara Armstrong created the series and is executive producer and writer. Entertainment One and Cameron Pictures Inc. produce, in association with Corus Entertainment.

“Faith Under Fire” stars Braxton as Antoinette Tuff, a clerical worker who talks down a school shooter. The other film will explore the life of Biles, America’s most decorated gymnast with 19 Olympic and World Championship medals.
