Lifetime ups its premium scripted content with new season greenlights of the critically-acclaimed drama series UnREAL for a fourth season and freshman drama Mary Kills People for a season two. The renewal of UnREAL comes ahead of its much-anticipated third season, which will debut in early 2018 alongside Mary Kills People. Lifetime's scripted fare also includes the straight-to-series psychological thriller from Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, YOU,
starring Penn Badgley and Elizabeth Lail, which begins production this
August. In line with Lifetime's Broad Focus initiative, more than 50% of
directors for these series are female, and are predominately produced
and written by women.
