The series was reportedly streamed by 67 million household in its first four weeks.
Global streaming platform, Netflix has announced the renewal of its steamy series ‘Sex/Life’ for a new season.
According to multiple reports, the drama series centered on how a married woman’s daring sexual past colludes with her marriage will return for its second season after the streamer confirmed its first season premiered to remarkable numbers.
Created by Stacy Rukeyser and inspired by the novel ’44 Chapters About 4 Men’ by BB Easton, the series stars Sarah Shahi in the lead role as Billie, a suburban wife and mom whose life turns upside down when she reunites with her bad-boy ex and soon begins to recall their daring sexual past.
Confirming the series renewal (via Digital Spy), Rukeyser said: “‘Sex/Life’ is a dream come true. To create a show about empowered female sexuality that has entranced so many millions of viewers is not only immensely fun but also incredibly gratifying.
“When I think about all the women who have reached out from all over the world to say that the show speaks to them in a deeply personal way, I am so inspired. I’m thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to continue telling this story for Billie, and for all of us.”
The series also stars Mike Vogel, Adam Demos, Margaret Odette and premiered in June 2021. ‘Sex/Life’ currently holds the spot as the third most viewed series on Netflix after 67 million household reportedly watch it in its first four weeks.
Who will star in Sex/Life season 2?
Good news: all of the original stars will be making a comeback. The streaming platform announced Sarah Shahi, Mike Vogel, Adam Demos and Margaret Odette will all be back as their respective characters – Billie Connelly, her husband Cooper, her former lover Brad Simon and her BFF Sasha Snow.
So, what exactly happened in Sex/Life season 1?
Fans of the Netflix original know the first series sees Billie’s internal battle between the ‘happy married life’ with her husband Cooper and two children, to missing the excitement (and great sex) of her previous relationship with Brad.
In the last episode, viewers see Billie turn up to Brad’s apartment, insisting that while she wasn’t going to leave her husband, she wanted her ex-boyfriend in her life too.
