Days after the show’s star Sarah Shahi criticised the “gimmicky” second season, Netflix has cancelled Sex/Life. Netflix’s erotic thriller made a triumphant second season debut in March 2021 after season one’s first season went viral in 2021. Mike Vogel and Adam Demos, Shahi’s real-life partner, returned as the two men she is in a love triangle with, and Shahi returned as the series’ protagonist Billie Connelly.
Shahi, however, asserted in a recent interview that the second season of the drama was unsatisfactory and that she had not received the same amounts of “support.”The sexual drama’s decision to cancel its renewal comes a little over a month after the second season’s six episodes, two fewer than season 1, were shown, and weeks after star Sarah Shahi, who plays protagonist Billie Connelly, agreed to take the lead in ABC’s newest courtroom drama, Judgement.
Billie and her ex-husband exchanged vows on a beach at the conclusion of Season 2, which debuted last month. However, according to Rukeyser, the show’s creators never intended for Billie and Brad to live happily ever after.
Shahi acknowledged earlier this month that she “didn’t receive the same support” as she had when Sex/Second Life first aired during the season’s filming. Demos and Shahi started dating in December 2020.”For me, it changed significantly, and I’m not scared to express that. I had trouble with the content,” she said in a “Not Skinny But Nor Fat” podcast episode. “I mean, after saying all this, I’m never going to work for Netflix again.
“That was simply tough, but that’s part of what I do,” she continued. I won’t always get along with or agree with a filmmaker. Although I won’t always agree with what I have to say or do, it is my responsibility to make it credible.
