Sara Shahi calls out ‘Sex/Life’ season 2 for being “gimmicky”

Series two of Netflix’s Sex/Life has been blasted as being “gimmicky” by the star of the show, Sarah Shahi. 

Speaking on an episode of Amanda Hirsch’s Not Skinny Not Fat podcast, the actor discussed Sex/Life, which follows a housewife who is tempted into a relationship with an old flame who is now famous, and opened up about her dismay with the second series. “I’m not going to put it down,” Shahi stated, “but I definitely did not have the support that I did the first season from the people involved in the show. It became a much different thing for me, and I’m not afraid to say that”. 

Continuing, she discussed how she struggled with the lack of Adam Demos in season two, especially as the pair began dating shortly after the release of the first series. 

“I struggled with the material. I just felt the thing that it had the first season — I mean, I’m never gonna work for Netflix again now after saying all this, but I can’t lie. And it was definitely a challenge,” she explained. 

Despite this, Shahi is still keen to take on a third season, later adding: “They always say is that it’s about the viewership. If it does astronomically high and is hugely successful, then it’s in their interest to bring it back. If it doesn’t, then it’s not in their interest to bring it…In Season 2, I felt like there were more moments that felt very gimmicky. Those kinds of things for me are always really hard to read… But I didn’t have to do them. The boys did”.
