In just a couple of months, class will be back in session! HBO Max has set a release window for season 2 of The Sex Lives of College Girls. The new season will premiere on the streamer this November, though the specific date has yet to be announced.
The series focuses on four roommates and friends — Bela, Leighton, Kimberly, and Whitney — who begin their college journey at New England Essex College. Throughout the first season, they adjusted to this new chapter, juggling social, academic, and other personal obstacles.
When we last saw the suitemates, they encountered various major turning points. Whitney revealed her affair with Dalton to her mother, who took the information in stride and offered nothing but support for her daughter. Leighton was dealing with a nasty break-up. Kimberly finds her and Leighton comes out to her, also receiving support. Bela left The Catullan and received a proposition from Evangeline to start their own comedy club. Meanwhile, Kimberly’s finale threads weren’t so positive. She’s caught cheating on a test and, while not expelled, she loses the scholarship allowing her to attend school. Without it, her family is in deep financial trouble.
Along with the release window, Entertainment Weekly previewed the upcoming season. According to co-creator and showrunner Justin Noble, the new season will pick up after Thanksgiving and lead into winter and the end of the first year. He also teases what to expect with the core four moving forward.
The Sex Lives of College Girls was created by Noble and Mindy Kaling. It stars Pauline Chalamet, Alyah Chanelle Scott, Reneé Rapp, and Amrit Kaur. Additional cast includes Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Renika Williams, Midori Francis, Christopher Meyer, Lauren “Lolo” Spencer, and Sierra Katow. Mitchell Slaggert is joining the upcoming season in a currently unknown role.
