Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 1 of Sex/Life.
A comedy-drama exploring the unexpected outcomes of a suburban mom's newfound penchant for fantasizing about her dreamboat of an ex-boyfriend? That's Sex/Life in a nutshell.
Over the course of eight episodes, the Netflix show charts Billie Connelly's (Sarah Shahi) attempts to keep her marriage alive — while feeling unable to stop dreaming about her ex Brad Simon (Adam Demos). Season 1 of Sex/Life ended on a gigantic cliffhanger. So, will there be a Season 2 of Sex/Life?
Season 1 of 'Sex/Life' ends with a sizeable cliffhanger.
Season 1 of Sex/Life arrived on Netflix on June 25, 2021. The show introduced viewers to characters like Billie, a former psychology PhD candidate at Columbia University in New York, who spent her early adulthood making the most of what life had to offer alongside her bestie, Sasha Snow (Margaret Odette), and (now-ex-) boyfriend, Brad.
Things take a new turn after she opts to settle down and start a family with an investment banker, Cooper Connelly (Mike Vogel). But to escape the mundanity of it all, Billie starts to daydream.
In Season 1, Episode 8 of Sex/Life, Billie decides to throw caution to the wind and head over to Brad's apartment — having already told him that she values her marriage with Cooper and has no interest in leaving him. But what's going to happen with them? This is why we need a Season 2.
Luckily, 'Sex/Life' has been renewed for a Season 2.
According to Deadline, Sex/Life will get a Season 2! We're not the only ones thrilled about this though — with a reported 67 million viewers in its first four weeks, Sex/Life is the third most-watched Netflix original series, after only Bridgerton and The Witcher.
We don't know exactly when Season 2 is coming, but the show's official Instagram page shares that it's "coming soon." We can only hope that that actually means soon. We have to find out what happens with Billie and Brad.
Season 2 could easily pick up where Season 1 left off, capturing how Cooper reacts to Billie's betrayal and her continuing interest in her ex.
Other plot points that Season 2 of Sex/Life could touch on include Sasha's newly found interest in getting hitched and Cooper's growing fascination with his boss, Francesca (Li Jun Li).
Which cast members are expected to return for Season 2 of 'Sex/Life'?
Lead actress Sarah Shahi began filming the DC movie Black Adam in April 2021. It's understood that the shooting will wrap in the summer of 2021, leaving plenty of time for that production to finish work ahead of its proposed July 29, 2022, release date. But Sex/Life couldn't exist without her, so she's been confirmed for Season 2, which will film in Toronto.
Adam Demos, Sarah's Sex/Life co-star and real-life boyfriend, is also confirmed to return to the series, alongside Mike Vogel, who plays Cooper, and Margaret Odette, who portrays Sasha.
Now that we know Sex/Life is coming back for Season 2, it'll most likely be released sometime in 2022. For the time being, die-hard fans will have to settle for Season 1, which is already available on Netflix.
