Steven Soderbergh’s critically-acclaimed limited series The Girlfriend Experience has been greenlit for a second season.
Starz President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht made the announcement today at the Starz Television Critics Association (TCA) presentation at the Beverly Hilton.
The second season of the series will consist of 14-episodes.
Steven Soderbergh will return as executive producer and Lodge Kerrigan and Amy Seimetz will serve as showrunners.
The second season of The Girlfriend Experience 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,” 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.”
The Girlfriend Experience was a reimagining of Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 critically acclaimed movie of the same name.
Season one of The Girlfriend Experience, which starred Riley Keough, followed Christine Reade (Keough), a second year student at Chicago-Burnham Law School and a new intern at a prestigious law firm.
Working hard to establish herself at the firm, her focus quickly shifts when a classmate introduces her to the world of transactional relationships.
