Sex/Life 2 is the new chat season of the TV series created by Stacy Rukeyser. The show, since it first arrived in 2021 on the Netflix streaming platform, has aroused great curiosity. The protagonist is a woman, who is torn between the stability of married life with her husband Cooper and her spicy past represented by the sexy Brad. Some deemed it one of the trashiest series ever and laughed at many of the hot sequences featuring Billie and her partners. It certainly cannot be considered one of Netflix’s best series, yet it is currently among the most watched shows. What is behind the success of Sex/Life? Probably the viewers’ desire to escape from reality, enjoying a light and spicy story. Since Also Sex/Life 2 is enjoying some success, the public wonders if it will be renewed for a new cycle of episodes.
The creator of Sex/Life spoke about the plans he has for season 3.
For the moment Netflix has not yet expressed itself on the future of the TV series: probably only after evaluating the results that the TV series will obtain in the first month will it decide whether to cancel it or keep it going. Meanwhile the creator of Sex/Life gave a long interview to Variety in which he commented on the second season finale and anticipated something about the future of the show. According to him, Billie’s story is not finished and could be further explored in a new story arc:
“Surely the second season is not intended to be a series finale. I think there are more and more stories to tell with these characters. We’d also come back to that core question from season 1, which is, can you have sex and live like a mom at the same time?”
Don’t read on if you haven’t watched the ending yet Sex/Life 2.
In the second season of Sex/Life Billie split from Cooper and started a new relationship, putting her ex boyfriend Brad aside. In the end, however, she realized that she felt not only a physical attraction but something deeper for the character played by Adam Demos. In the end they reconciled and Billie confessed to her that she was pregnant. Stacy Rukeyser explained to Variety why it was so important for him to give a happy ending to the couple. The creator of the show illustrated how often women who follow their desires in the cinematic and serial world always meet a tragic fate and said he wanted to show something different in Sex/Life. Here are his words:
“The mantra this season, really, is this is a love story. This is a fairy tale. This is not a morality tale. There are a lot of people who thought maybe Billie should be punished for what she did at the end of season one. I was adamant that I didn’t want to tell that story, because it’s really against the ethics of our entire show. And quite frankly, if you want to see a morality tale about a woman having a sex drive, all you need to do is watch the entire canon of film and television. What usually happens is that a woman with sexual desire either goes crazy, becomes the bad girl or the p*****a, or gets punished. – or even killed, which is the ultimate punishment. I was really adamant that this is not the story we’re telling. This series was always meant to be escapist and challenging, to inspire women to really look at their lives and make sure they are happy and getting what they want. (…) And I feel that giving them happy endings has been a much better way to inspire women than the make Billie miserable just because she screwed up.“
