We discuss whether there will be a season 3 of the HBO Max series The Sex Lives of College Girls and its renewed or cancelled status.
The second season of The Sex Lives of College Girls has come to a close. We saw the ladies of Essex have a wild ride of partying, love and heartbreak. The season brought quite a few shocks and awed us while making us laugh, as they did in season one. Here is a little bit of what went down in season 2.
For Leighton (Reneé Rapp), she finally came out, which led her to catch up for years of not sleeping with people. However, we saw her fall for Tatum, a girl that was pretty identical to her. She ultimately realized that Tatum was everything she was trying not to be anymore. The season ended for her with ditching Kappa and getting together with Alicia.
Then, for Bela (Amrit Kaur), she went from telling The Catullan to pound sound and creating The Foxy. After building the women-led comedy writing group, things started to get to her head a little. A quick relationship with Eric led to her getting dumped by him for cheating, followed by an Essex View article that highlighted only her. Bela went from the top of the mountain to quickly fall down.
Whitney (Alyah Chanelle Scott) had a rollercoaster ride of a year in the love department. First, there was Canaan, and then it was her BioChem partner Andrew, but the latter never materialized besides being a hookup. But the biggest thing for her this season was she finally honed in on a major. So we know heading into season 3 that she is heading into a BioChemistry as her major. And, of course, if you caught that ending (OH MY GOODNESS).
Kimberly (Pauline Chalamet) probably had the biggest roller coaster of a season amongst the Essex ladies. In her love life, she found herself falling for the super hot new guy in town, Jackson. While it felt like he was out of her league, the duo hit it off rather well. However, one night with a new guy (if you know, you know), she randomly broke up with him and kissed this new man in her life. On her personal side, her journey to pay for her tuition fees was the other big obstacle she faced. We saw her end up selling off her eggs (with strong support from Leighton) to help close that chapter. But what is next for her? And the new boy toy?
Will there be a season 3 of The Sex Lives of College Girls?
Yes, there will be a season 3 of The Sex Lives of College Girls. HBO confirmed the renewal news on December 14th, 2022. The latest season had brought in record audiences, which is the key reason for a continuation.
The biggest reason the show was renewed for a second season was the incredible reviews. It boasted 93% (critics) and 87% (audience) scores on Rotten Tomatoes. The second season has seen some similar success, with the critics at 90% and audiences higher this season at 95%. One thing that is hovering that people might be alarmed by is the current state of WB because everything within that company is currently being thrown for a loop.
The Sex Lives of College Girls season 3 release date
We know how the story ended, and plenty of stories need to be told for our ladies at Essex. Let’s hope that season 3 brings in critical acclaim and the viewership again to persuade further seasons. We’ll keep you updated on the release date of season 3 once it is confirmed.
