Netflix has recently announced that it is canceling the popular drama series ‘Sex/Life’ after just two seasons, much to fans’ disappointment worldwide.
The show, which explored the complexities of relationships and sexuality, was known for its steamy scenes and well-developed characters.
Netflix cancels sex/Life After Two Seasons
Netflix pulled the plug on the steamy drama series Sex/Life after its second season. The announcement came just five weeks after the season’s debut, which only had six episodes instead of the eight in season one. Moreover, it followed Sarah Shahi’s decision to star in ABC’s legal drama, Judgement, which is up for contention next season.
Although season two concluded with Billie, played by Shahi, reuniting with her ex, Brad, and getting hitched on a beach, showrunner Stacy Rukeyser revealed that the finale was never meant to be the end of the series. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she shared her hope that they would get to tell more stories in the Sex/Life universe, as there were still more tales to spin. However, she also stressed that it was vital for each character to arrive at a meaningful place this season.
It’s a bummer that Sex/Life is no more, but we can’t say we didn’t see it coming. With Shahi’s exit and the season’s reduced episode count, it’s not hard to imagine why Netflix might have made the call. Nevertheless, fans of the show will surely miss the tantalizing plotlines and sultry scenes. Perhaps, someday, we’ll revisit the Sex/Life universe and learn what else is brewing in Billie and Brad’s love life. Fingers crossed!
Season 2 Of The Drama Series Was Released On March 2, While Season 1 In June
Season 2 of the drama series debuted on the streaming platform on March 2, whereas Season 1 aired in June 2021. The mastermind behind this captivating series is creator Stacy Rukeyser, who drew inspiration from the book “44 Chapters About 4 Men” by B.B. Easton.
The lead role of Billie Connelly is played by Sarah Shahi, who portrays a mother of two, tired from her responsibilities and longing for her carefree days in New York with her best friend Sasha (Margaret Odette) before marrying the dependable Cooper (Mike Vogel). Billie begins journaling and fantasizing about her past experiences with an ex (Adam Demos).
