Lifetime has cancelled UnREAL after four seasons, with no Season 5, per THR.
In an usual move, the fourth — and now final — season will first air on Hulu instead of Lifetime:
The drama from Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon will likely end with its previously announced fourth season, which, in a rare and surprising move, will first air on Hulu rather than on its original home at Lifetime. Hulu, Lifetime and producers A+E Studios declined comment as deals are still being worked out.
Sources say the move to first run on Hulu — which has been the SVOD home for the Constance Zimmer and Shiri Abbleby drama — comes as the streamer was eager to air seasons three and four of the series. (Season three, which ended in April on Lifetime, has yet to premiere on Hulu.)
It’s not yet clear whether Hulu will take over the reigns and resurrect UnREAL for Season 5. Stay tuned…
