HBO Max has officially decided to renew creator Mindy Kaling’s comedy-drama series The Sex Lives of College Girls for a second season.
According to the streamer, the series has been consistently ranking among its top titles since it made its debut nearly three weeks ago. The renewal comes ahead of this Thursday’s premiere of the first season’s final two episodes.
“Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble have created and written a show that is full of heart, female friendships, and awkward naked parties” HBO Max’s Head of Original Content, Sarah Aubrey said in a statement. “We are delighted that this comic, honest portrayal of the college condition has resonated for everyone, whether they had sex in college or not. We can’t wait to see where these uniquely complex yet relatable characters will go next.”
The Sex Lives of College Girls is created by Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, who is also serving as the showrunner. The series stars Pauline Chalamet (The King of Staten Island), Amrit Kaur (The D Cut, Anarkali), Reneé Rapp (Mean Girls on Broadway), and Alyah Chanelle Scott (The Book of Mormon).
“It follows four college roommates as they arrive at New England’s prestigious Essex College,” reads the synopsis. “A bundle of contradictions and hormones, these girls are equal parts lovable and infuriating as they live out their new, free lives on campus.”
Joining them are Midori Francis (Dash & Lily), Gavin Leatherwood (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Chris Meyer, Ilia Isorelys Paulino, Lauren Spencer, and Renika Williams.
The Sex Lives of College Girls is executive produced by Howard Klein (The Mindy Project, The Office). The first episode is co-written by Kaling and Noble. It is a production by Kaling International in association with Warner Bros. Television.
