The Girlfriend Experience has been renewed for season 2, Starz announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Monday.
Steven Soderbergh’s scripted anthology series will return for a 14-episode second season featuring entirely new characters and plotlines. Co-creators Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz will return as executive producers, writers, and directors alongside EPs Philip Fleishman, Jeff Cuban, Andrew Fierberg, and Adele Romanski.
“The first season of The Girlfriend Experience allowed us to accommodate all viewing appetites with the traditional weekly episodic premiere schedule as well as a binging option for the entire 13 episodes,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director at Starz. “We’re excited to offer Starz subscribers a second season that will explore new GFEs, clients, and relationships as we take viewers back into this world that questions the price of intimacy and its emotional consequences.”
A reimagining of Soderbergh’s 2009 movie of the same name, the first season starred Riley Keough as a law school student and new intern at a prestigious law firm who gets introduced to the world of transactional relationships.
