Wake Up and Live: A Summary of Netflix’s Sex/Life Season 2
Are you ready to wake up and live? Netflix’s Sex/Life season two is here to help you do just that. The series follows Sarah Shahi’s Billie as she enters a love triangle between her reliable, suburban husband Cooper (Mike Vogel) and her “sexy ex-boyfriend” Brad (Adam Demos). When Billie starts to relive her wild, free-spirited youth in New York City, she begins to wonder how she got to this place in her life.
The teaser for Sex/Life season two shows Billie and Brad rekindling their relationship, while Cooper may be entering a love triangle of his own. Shahi’s voiceover explains, “Not everyone has it: The desire to wake up, stop sleepwalking through our lives, to stop trying to do the right thing while denying our truth, but those of us who do, we tread in dangerous waters.”
The show is told through a woman’s perspective, with each episode being directed by a female director. This was one of the things that attracted Shahi to the script, as she said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, “A lot of times, when you have female sexuality onscreen, it’s portrayed through the male POV, but this time, we really put it on its head by portraying everything through the female gaze. So I thought that was just something that was so important to be a part of.”
Sex/Life season two is about taking a chance, living life to the fullest, and embracing the truth. Billie’s journey is one that many of us can relate to, and the show is sure to leave viewers feeling inspired and motivated to make the most of their lives. So, if you’re ready to wake up and live, tune in to Netflix on March 2nd for the new season of Sex/Life.
