Sex/Life Season 2 dropped on Netflix on March 2, expanding on Billie’s journey of motherhood, relationships, and personal fulfillment. After last season saw Billie divided between her suburban life and marriage, and her steamy former flame, Brad, Season 2 saw her take an active role in choosing her path forward. But after you’ve breezed through the latest batch of episodes, will there be a Sex/Life Season 3?

Sadly, you’ve seen the last of Billie and Brad’s romance on Sex/Life. On April 7, Deadline reported that Netflix had canceled the show ahead of Season 3. A spokesperson for the streamer told Deadline that “the second season brought the series to a natural close, wrapping up the storyline for key characters whose relationships come to a happy conclusion.”

Demos, who played Brad, seemed to agree in a recent interview with People, telling the magazine that Billie and Brad’s wedding was “the perfect ending for those two characters.”

The news of Sex/Life’s cancellation comes days after Shahi appeared on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, and expressed concerns about her Season 2 experience, describing some elements as “gimmicky” and “a way to become another TikTok sensation.”

“The second season was challenging for me ... I’m not going to put it down, but I definitely did not have the support that I did the first season, from the people involved in the show,” Shahi explained. “It became a much different thing for me. And I’m not afraid to say that.”

The actor went on to say that she “struggled” with the material, compared to Season 1. “I mean, I’m never gonna work for Netflix after saying all this,” she joked. “[But] I just can’t lie.”

Creator Stacy Rukeyser previously told The Hollywood Reporter that she wanted to continue the series, though. “Look, we could make 117 seasons of this show! We are not short on ideas,” she said. “Certainly, I think there is a lot more to do with these characters that is part of what I thought from the beginning. So, I hope we get to.”

Though Sex/Life won’t continue, the show has changed the lives of the people who star in it. Shahi and Demos started dating after starring as Billie and Brad, respectively. “We met in the makeup trailer and we just got on instantly,” Shahi told People. “We had the exact same taste in music. We had the same taste in whiskey and tequilas and I was really blown away by him just as a person and all I knew was that I wanted more.”

Fortunately, more seems to be in the cards for the couple. As early as spring 2021 (i.e., before the show even premiered), Shahi called Demos her “soulmate” and “forever” in an Instagram post — and more recently, the pair has sparked marriage rumors. So while you’ll miss seeing them together as Billie and Brad, you can at least look forward to IRL relationship updates from the stars themselves.
