Will there be The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2?
Yes! Shortly after Season 1 aired, HBO Max renewed the coming-of-age comedy for another season. According to a press release from the streaming service, when the series premiered it consistently ranked among top HBO Max titles. Its release on Thursday, December 2 even saw a 40 percent increase in its viewership since its debut.
“Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble have created and written a show that is full of heart, female friendships, and awkward naked parties,” Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max, said in a statement. “We are delighted that this comic, honest portrayal of the college condition has resonated for everyone, whether they had sex in college or not. We can’t wait to see where these uniquely complex yet relatable characters will go next.”
Who will be in The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2?
Pauline Chalamet (Kimberly), Amrit Kaur (Bela), Reneé Rapp (Leighton), and Alyah Chanelle Scott (Whitney) are expected to return as the four central characters. Along with them, we may also see Gavin Leatherwood (Nico), Chris Meyer (Canaan), Ilia Isorelýs Paulino (Lila), Renika Williams (Willow), Lolo Spencer (Jocelyn), and Midori Francis (Alicia).
Additionally, Rob Huebel (Henry), Nicole Sullivan (Carol), James Morosini (Dalton), Sierra Katow (Evangeline), and Kavi Ramachandran Ladnier (Reena) may continue to be seen in a recurring capacity. Conor Donnally’s (Ryan) return is uncertain due to his character’s expulsion from The Catullan. However, we can expect fresh faces to join the cast for season 2 in the coming months.
What’s the story for The Sex Lives of College Girls Season 2?
The first season of the show begins with Kimberly, Bela, Leighton, and Whitney settling into their life at college. Whitney kicks off her college years with soccer and Leighton with academics. Bela and Kimberly start their adventures by going to a naked party. Even though Whitney starts a relationship with Dalton, the turn of events leaves her to explore her connection with Canaan, Kimberly’s co-worker.
Leighton hits it off with Alicia. But things go haywire in their relationship as Alicia is not comfortable being in a relationship with someone who is closeted. When Kimberly comes to console her, Leighton reveals that she is a lesbian. At The Catullan, Bela and others call out Ryan on his behaviour, which results in him getting kicked out of the team. Kimberly fears the worst after cheating on a test leads her down a path she would have never usually taken. Although she is not expelled, she learns that her scholarship is getting revoked.
The second season of the show may pick up from where season 1 concludes. Coming out to Kimberly may help Leighton accept herself more wholly. If she gets the confidence to come out of the closet, she may even be able to patch things up with Alicia. Kimberly narrowly escapes expulsion, but the lack of scholarship may affect her severely. We can expect Bela and Evangeline to set up their all-women comedy group and follow their passion more independently and creatively. Moreover, Whitney and Canaan may spend more time together.
