Starz has picked up a second season of its series “The Girlfriend Experience,” which, we now know, will be an anthology.
The cable channel announced the renewal Monday. The creative team — creators Amy Siemetz and Lodge Kerrigan and executive producer Steven Soderbergh — remains in place, but Season 2 will focus on “entirely new characters and plotlines.”
“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,” Carmi Zlotnik, managing director at Starz, says in a statement. “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.”
Season 2 will run for 14 episodes, up from 13 for the first season. New cast members and a premiere date haven’t been locked in yet.
