With The Sex Lives of College Girls season 2 release date quickly approaching on HBO Max, and we’ve never been more excited for school to be back in session. We were first introduced to Bela, Kimberly, Leighton, and Whitney — our chaotic and lovable roommate foursome — in November 2021 on the campus of Essex College, where their new found freedom would be tested to the absolute limits. And while the group wasn’t necessarily interested in friendship (we’re looking at you, Leighton) their odd pairing ended up being the perfect recipe for hilarious disaster.
Directed by Mindy Kaling, The Sex Lives of College Girls is about stepping out on your own, exploring sex and sexuality —and the many on campus nudist adventures — while also simultaneously building lifelong friendships with people who were once strangers. Whether you’re new to the girls of Essex or like me were glued to your screen throughout season one, there’s no denying that the forthcoming second season of the show will be its biggest yet — and you do not want to miss out.
Luckily for you, we’ve collected everything we know so far about The Sex Lives of College Girls season 2 below, including cast updates, plot details, and whether or not Kimberly will be able to pay her $42,000 tuition. (We sure hope so!)
Who will be in The Sex Lives of College Girls season 2?
From the looks of the trailer, our leading ladies of course will be returning. Reneé Rapp plays the wealthy, slightly unapproachable, and self-discovery bound Leighton Murray. Pauline Chalamet is Kimberly Finkle, the more financially insecure and socially awkward college student. Alyah Chanelle Scott plays student athlete superstar and senators daughter, Whitney Chase. Amrit Kaur plays the sexually liberated comedienne Bela Malhotra.
Alongside our leading ladies we see a few returning characters like dorm-mates Jocelyn (played by Lauren Spencer) and Travis (played by Betti). Both characters, although technically side roles, have huge and hilarious moments on screen.
