‘UnReal’ Launches Digital Spinoff Series for Fan-Favorite Contestant, Season 2 Premiere Date Set

UnReal’s” second season may have a whole new crop of contestants, but Season 1 fan-favorite Faith (Breeda Wool) has landed a show for herself.

On Thursday Lifetime launched “The Faith Diaries,” marking the network’s first-ever scripted digital short series. All 10 episodes of the digital show are available on Lifetime’s website.

Written and produced by “UnReal” co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, “The Faith Diaries” follows the fictional contestant Faith and her girlfriend Amy as they travel to Los Angeles to pursue their Hollywood dreams and learn about their relationship along way. On the flagship show, Faith was one of the hopefuls on the dating show “Everlasting” — a parody of “The Bachelor” — vying for the British male suitor. But toward the end of the series, she revealed that she is a lesbian who’s been in love with her friend Amy for years.

The digital spin-off comes ahead of the Season 2 premiere of “UnReal,” set for June 6 at 10 p.m. The fourth season of “Devious Maids” premieres the same night at 9 p.m. Both scripted series will see 10-episode seasons.

In its first season, “UnReal” garnered much critical acclaim, but averaged a modest 0.55 rating in adults 18-49, a 0.87 in women 18-49 and 1.25 million total viewers in Nielsen’s “live plus-7” estimates. “Devious Maids” was Lifetime’s top scripted series last year with a 0.91 in adults 18-49, a 1.44 in women 18-49 and 2.44 million viewers.
