The Sex Lives of College Girls will be back for sophomore year. The irreverent yet lovable comedy from producer Mindy Kaling and showrunner Justin Noble has been renewed for a second season on HBO Max, just days ahead of the season 1 finale.
“We are delighted that this comic, honest portrayal of the college condition has resonated for everyone, whether they had sex in college or not,” HBO’s head of original content, Sarah Aubrey, said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see where these uniquely complex yet relatable characters will go next.”
TSLOCG premiered on Nov. 18 and and became an instant hit, marking the biggest launch by an original comedy on HBO Max this year. The series even hits “new platform highs each week,” according to the streamer. No wonder the show was renewed so quickly.
The comedy follows four college roommates at the fictional Essex College as they navigate campus life, sex, identity, and friendships during their freshman year. Stars Pauline Chalamet (Kimberly), Amrit Kaur (Bela), Reneé Rapp (Leighton), and Alyah Chanelle Scott (Whitney) are likely to return, but it’s unclear whether we’ll see more of returning cast members like Midori Francis (Alicia), Gavin Leatherwood (Nico), and Lauren Spencer (Jocelyn).

Speaking to ELLE.com in November, the cast shared how important it was to be a part of a show that portrays young women’s sex lives in an honest light, with all of its awkwardness, imperfections, and, at times, humorous moments.
“It’s about the messiness, especially at that age—everyone’s figuring it out, it’s awkward,” Chalamet said. “I mean, few people know their bodies exactly and what they like. I think that there’s room with these characters to explore further what that means for them.”
“We’re just breaking that stigma,” Scott added. “There’s no shame. You’re in the time period of your life where you should be exploring your sexuality and what you like and what you don’t like. And that’s what you could just see us do.” Stay tuned for more.
