Starz Picks Up A Second Season Of 'Limited Series' The Girlfriend Experience
Get ready to see a lot more very nice hotel rooms!
What Happened? As we just learned via press release, Starz has picked up a second season of The Girlfriend Experience, coming some time in the future for a fourteen-episode season revolving around an entirely new cast. (So...sorry to mislead you with that lead pic of Riley Keough, because apparently she's not going to be in it.)
Why Did This Happen? If premium cable originals know ONE THING, it's that you can't go wrong putting prostitutes in your shows. (BUT I KID STARZ: I was actually fascinated by the first season of The Girlfriend Experience and look forward to more, even if I am disappointed that Keough's Christine won't be its protagonist; her story was well told and well acted.) I assume it also happened because Executive Producer Steven Soderbergh can't be idle for a single solitary second.
What Do I Do Now? Watch the first season! It's really good! It's so good I'm not even annoyed by this "limited series" takeback! You have to be a Starz subscriber, but you should be anyway for OOOTLANDAR alone.
