College Girls’ Sex Lives will be back soon. The irreverent yet lovable comedy from producer Mindy Kaling and showrunner Justin Noble was renewed for a second season on HBO Max just days before the season 1 finale last December.

“We’re thrilled that this comedic, honest portrayal of the state of college has resonated with 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.”

We don’t have to wait much longer! College Girls’ Sex Lives returns for its second season in November, Weekly entertainment confirms. We are still waiting for an exact date.

Who is in the cast?

The comedy follows four fellow students at the fictional Essex College as they navigate campus life, sex, identity and friendships during their first year. Stars Pauline Chalamet (Kimberly), Amrit Kaur (Bela), Reneé Rapp (Leighton) and Alyah Chanelle Scott (Whitney) are likely to return, but it’s unclear if we’ll see more of returning cast members like Midori Francis (Alicia), and Lauren Spencer (Jocelyn).

Gavin Leatherwood, who plays Nico, will not return to the show, he said Us Weekly. (A source confirmed the news to TVLine too.) “There is a season 2, but I don’t want to go back,” Leatherwood said. He added that he was “happy to do the first season” but wants to “branch out and go in a different direction.” The actor continued: “It’s been such an incredible experience. I think Mindy is brilliant and the cast are all lovely. But with so many amazing opportunities out there, we’re going to keep spreading our wings and directing ourselves to other projects so that is the step.”

Speaking to in November In 2021, 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 its awkwardness, imperfections and sometimes humorous moments.

“It’s about the mess, especially at that age — everybody figures it out, it’s awkward,” Chalamet said. “I mean, very few people know their bodies exactly and what they like. I think there’s room with these characters to explore what that means to them.”

“We’re just breaking that stigma,” Scott added. “There’s no shame. You’re in that 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 doing.” Stay tuned for more.

What should it be about?

Season 2 will “start right after Thanksgiving break in their freshman year of college. And then this season will take us through the end of that freshman year,” showrunner Justin Noble told Weekly entertainment. Kaling also teased that parts of the story will take place during a Northeast winter, so expect “a lot of coats, a lot of snow,” she added.

While we don’t have final plot details, the Season 1 finale does offer some clues as to what’s coming next. Let’s recap, shall we?

Bela leaves The Catullan, an exclusive comedy troupe on campus. After she and other members were able to kick one of the co-editors out for sexually assaulting her and another woman in the club, she realizes that the sexism and toxicity continues in the group even when he is gone. Another couple of female members in The Catullan are also leaving and will start a new group with Bela.

“Opening the door to a world where Bela is doing something she loves, but now with female cohorts, seems really exciting to us. But as you can imagine, of course, it can come with some new challenges that are presented to her, Noble said TVLine.

Also, are there sparks between her and Eric (another co-editor played by Mekki Leeper)? All Noble is saying is that “a seed has been planted” for next season. He later added to EW, “I think Bela might be ready to be in a relationship.”


Whitney tells her mother about her past affair with her married coach, Dalton, and they reach a new level of trust in their relationship. Now Whitney has moved on with another man, Canaan (Chris Meyer), which could be explored more next season. “I love seeing them together. Alyah [Chanelle Scott] and Chris [Meyer] are just so amazing and the screen just loves them together. So hopefully there are better things on the horizon for Whitney, romantically and in every other way,” Noble added to TVLine.

He confirmed that EW that Season 2 will “pick up their relationship where it was. And then a lot of her journey through Season 2 will kind of be figuring out what happens when football season is over.”

Leighton’s relationship with Alicia ends (Alicia says she can’t date someone who is still closeted), leaving her devastated. When Kimberly finds her crying in bed, Leighton comes out to her and reveals that no one else knows yet. Her journey in Season 2 is still being figured out. “Will it [her sexuality] be a secret between the two of them that the other two suitemates don’t know about? Will Leighton jump out of the closet with two feet? It remains to be seen,” Noble said.

“We’re going to continue a lot of Leighton’s journey of coming out,” he later confirmed EW.

And finally, Kimberly doesn’t get kicked out for cheating on her exam, but her scholarship was revoked, meaning she’ll have to find a way to pay an extra $23,000 per year. semester to stay at Essex. It will be difficult as her family is struggling with money. “It leaves her in a lot of trouble,” Noble explained. “We’ll just have to see now that we’re lucky enough to keep her story going, how she’s going to get out of that hole.”

Season 2 will touch on the very relatable issue of student debt and loans throughout Kimberly’s story, Noble said Weekly entertainment. So Kimberly is going to deal with that quite a bit and figure out how to solve her problem.”
