Honoured as AFIs Television Program of the Year, named a Peabody Award winner, and nominated for three Critics Choice Awards, Lifetimes critically acclaimed UnREAL continues to push the limits with its highly anticipated season two return. Co-created by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, the filmed-in-Vancouver series gives a fictitious behind-the-scenes glimpse into the chaos surrounding the production of a dating competition program, Everlasting. Having already tackled relevant matters of gender politics, the series, starring Critics Choice Award nominee Shiri Appleby and Critics Choice Award winner Constance Zimmer as producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King, will stir up the drama in season two when Everlasting casts its first-ever African American suitor. As announced by star Shiri Appleby in a video posted today on Lifetime Canadas Twitter account, season two premieres Monday, June 6 at 10pm ET/PT.

Returning as series regulars are Craig Bierko as Everlastings creator, Chet, who is on a quest to reclaim his full power on set; Josh Kelly as Jeremy, Everlastings director of photography; and Canadian Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman as Jay, a field producer whose ambitions run far beyond the show. B.J. Britt joins the cast as Everlastings new suitor, All-American football star Darius Hill. Season one of UnREAL is currently available on shomi.

Written and produced by UnREAL co-creator and executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, the networks first-ever scripted digital short series, The Faith Diaries, launches today in a multi-platform release. The series follows season one favourite Faith (Breeda Wool) and her girlfriend Amy (Malea Mitchell) as they travel to Los Angeles to pursue their Hollywood dreams and learn about their relationship along the way. The 10-episode series is available on mylifetimetv.ca and on Lifetime Canadas Facebook and YouTube pages at facebook.com/lifetimetvca, and youtube.com/user/LifetimeCanada.

Murder and mayhem collide once again in the mansions of Beverly Hills wealthiest and most powerful families in the newest season of Devious Maids. Executive produced by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria, Devious Maids follows a close-knit group of friends, Marisol (Ana Ortiz), Rosie (Dania Ramrez), Carmen (Roselyn Snchez) and Zoila (Judy Reyes), who are bonded together by their jobs, life struggles, and the melodramatic universe that engulfs their employers. Season four of Devious Maids premieres Monday, June 6 at 9pm ET/PT.

This season, Marisol finds herself acting as a support system to Evelyn (Rebecca Wisocky) in the wake of a big life change. Meanwhile, Rosies positive and sunny disposition leaves much to be desired by her new boss, Genevieve (Susan Lucci) who is acclimating to a household without Zoilas honest and acerbic humor. Carmen continues to pursue her singing career until her cousin Daniela (Sol Rodriguez) comes to town and shakes things up. Marisol also finds herself in a new relationship, which eventually becomes a complicated triangle when her old flame Jesse reappears.

The series also stars Tom Irwin, Grant Show, and Nathan Owens. Joining in recurring roles are Longorias Desperate Housewives castmate James Denton, Carlos Ponce, Ryan McPartlin, Stephanie Faracy, and Elizabeth Rodriguez. Kathryn LaNasa also makes a guest appearance this season, joining her real-life husband, Grant Show.
