The popular drama series Sex/ Life, starring Sarah Shahi, will return for a second season on March 2 according to a Netflix announcement. In June 2021, the first season was released to great success.

The TV show was influenced by B.B. Due to its graphic sex scenes, Easton's memoir 44 Chapters About 4 Men generated controversy when it was initially released in 2021. Viewers were particularly drawn to a scene in the naked shower.

The show centers on a suburban housewife who is trying to make it through her dull existence. She runs into an old flame and, in an effort to liven things up, risks upsetting her already ideal life.

Influenced by B.B. The show is based on Easton's memoir 44 Chapters About 4 Men and follows Billie Connelly (Shahi), a wife and mother who, after becoming bored with her dull suburban life, starts writing in her journal and daydreaming about her passionate adventures with her ex-boyfriend Brad (played by Adam Demos of UnREAL and Falling Inn Love).

Sex/Life Season 1 Recap on Plot and Explaining The Ending

WARNING! This section contains spoilers!!


American citizen Billie Connelly is married and resides in the outskirts of New York City. The joyful family is completed with the two adorable children and Cooper Connelly's admiration for his wife. The only imperfection is Billie's sensual life. After the birth of their second child, their marriage's intimacy simply disappeared. Wild in her previous life, Billie misses it in her marriage. She yearns to feel that rush of the love bubble once more.

Unable to suppress her desires, Billie begins journaling in order to reflect on the events of the past. Her notes immediately become overflowing with recollections of Brad Simon, an ex-boyfriend she dated eight years ago before meeting Cooper. Billie was having the time of her life with Brad.

Sadly, Billie's desires were not recorded in her journal. Connelly goes over his wife's notebook while making an effort to live up to her expectations. Brad was naturally wild, violent, and intriguing, but the spark is still absent. Billie's wish is soon granted when she meets Brad at the home of her best friend Sasha Snow. The next step will, however, determine the future of Billie's marriage and the course of action.

Ending Explained

Ending Explained

Brad Simon, the suave and attractive proprietor of a record label, suffered from father issues. Brad's father abandoned him when he was a child due to his drug abuse. Brad hated his father and had always made a point of reading the front page of the paper in the hopes that his father would see him and contact him at least once.

Due to his childhood experience, Brad felt scared of commitments. He fled from those he became attached to. Brad treated Billie the same way. Despite everything, he still left Billie because he was afraid to confront his own father and deal with his own problems. Brad revealed to Billie that he had reconciled with his father eight years later, when they first met. He was changed, and he now had a deeper appreciation for love. Will Billie choose Brad over Connelly now that their conflict with one other has been resolved?

Connelly was a smart, well-mannered man who made every effort to resemble Brad. Connelly wasn't Brad, though, and Billie picked him because of that. Billie desired love, protection, security, a lovely home, and a family, and Connelly provided her all of that and more. However, for Billie, it made up only 85% of the ideal life. There was still a 15% shortage. Only Brad could provide the adrenaline, danger, and excitement. An ambitious Billie wanted it all. She was utterly determined.

BB Easton's Opinion on the Adaptation

The novelist, whose writing served as the basis for the Netflix series, said she would 'definitely' be open to writing more. 

In July 2021, Easton told the U.K.'s Daily Express, 'There is a lot of buzz about season two, and I have great hopes merely because of the response internationally.' 

She remarked that she's been considering writing another memoir on 'all of the funny and sexy things that have happened since that book came out' and would 'definitely want to keep it going.' She said that it's number one in the UK and has been for a while.

Sex/Life Season 2 Cast and Plot

The show's leads, Shahi and Demos, who play Billie and Brad and are actually dating, are back for season 2 of Sex/Life.

Shahi, who met her real-life boyfriend Demos on set, was initially drawn to the character because of the dynamic female lead. Even the actor, who plays Billie, is pushing for a second season of the show because of her multifaceted personality.

Cooper, Billie's husband, is also returning, played by Mike Vogel, while Sasha Snow, Billie's best friend, is once again played by Margaret Odette.

Fans will also be happy to learn that Li Jun Li is returning as Francesca and Jonathan Sadowski is back as Devon.

The cast of Sex/Life is also getting a few fresh faces for the upcoming second season.

  • Wallis Day as Gigi

  • Dylan Bruce as Spencer

  • Craig Bierko as Mick

  • Darius Homayoun as Majid

The second season of Sex/Life doesn't have a plot yet, but we do know it will take up after the dramatic cliffhanger of the first season, when Billie returned to Brad and suggested they continue an affair despite her still being married to Cooper. The likelihood that the upcoming run will be equally as enthralling and exciting for lovers of the genre, if not more so, is extremely likely, which will definitely increase interest to an all-time high.
