The steamy, jaw-dropping series is renewed after 67 million households watched the first season in the first four weeks of release.
Netflix has renewed Sex/Life for season two, with production again taking place in Toronto, Canada.
The first season premiered in June earlier this year, with a massive 67 million households streaming the series in the first four weeks of its release alone.
All series regular cast members are set to return for the new season, including Sarah Shahi (Billie Connelly), Mike Vogel (Cooper Connelly), Adam Demos (Brad Simon) and Margaret Odette (Sasha Snow).
Creator Stacy Rukeyser (known for UnREAL) will return as showrunner, executive producer and writer. Alongside Rukeyser are executive producer Jordan Hawley and Academy Award® winning producer J. Miles Dale (Shape of Water, The Strain, The Vow, Nightmare Alley).
On the series, 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.”
Inspired by the book 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton, Sex/Life is the story of a love triangle between a woman, her husband, and her past that takes a provocative new look at female identity and desire. Billie Connelly (Sarah Shahi) wasn’t always a stay-at-home wife and mother living in the suburbs. Before she married loving and reliable Cooper (Mike Vogel) and moved to Connecticut, Billie was a free-spirited wild child living in New York City with her best friend Sasha (Margaret Odette), working hard and playing even harder.
Exhausted from taking care of her two young kids and feeling nostalgic for her past, Billie starts journaling and fantasizing about her passionate exploits with sexy ex-boyfriend Brad (Australian actor Adam Demos), the big heartbreak she never got over. But the more Billie remembers, the more she wonders how she got here — and then her husband finds her journal.
Will the truth about Billie’s past start a sexual revolution in her marriage, or lead her down a path back to the life she thought she left behind with the man who broke her heart?
The first season of Sex/Life is currently streaming globally, only on Netflix.
