Sex Drugs Rock Roll Renewed

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Renewed for Season 2 at FX

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll… &Renewal.

FX has renewed its Denis Leary-fronted comedy for Season 2, a little over a month after the series wrapped its freshman run.

“The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season 2. In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kickass viral video out of it. Not to mention awesome Live+3s [ratings],” Leary, who also serves as a writer, director and executive producer on the series, said in a statement. “I look forward to once again creating new episodes of television with [FX Networks CEO] John Landgraf’s exceptional FX team. And scoring some cool Bastard Executioner swag.”

SDRR debuted in July to 870,000 total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, and by its finale was netting 500K/0.2. That said, FX notes that with Live+7 DVR playback folded in, it ranks as basic cable’s most watched scripted comedy in the Men 18-49 and Men 25-54 demos, and placed No. 3 in total audience and the Adults 18-49 demo.

SDRR’s 10-episode sophomore season will premiere sometime in 2016.

    I’m glad it’s coming back, I was pleasantly surprised at the underlying charm of the characters in an off-beat story. I enjoy the creativity in the concept but most importantly the actors are all excellent and have great chemistry, which is not common on TV.

    Cool cool cool

    I loved this show! I found myself laughing out loud most episodes. I also thought the music was pretty good as well. Elizabeth Gillies has a fantastic voice.

  4. Heathers says:

    Yes!!! The first comedy to really make me laugh out loud in a long time. Actually, I think the last time I laughed really loud was the series finale of Rescue Me!

    I really enjoyed the first season and figured it would be renewed. It’s hilarious and the chemistry between the actors is just great.

  6. Shar says:

    Very glad to hear this although the only sour note for me is John Corbett who, although a accomplished musician, does not seem to fit the handsome rocker image.

    Really enjoyed this show.

  8. RD says:

    Can’t think why. This show has no bearing on what the rockn’roll biz is about at all.

  9. Cas says:

    If David Bowie guest starred in seasin two I would start watching this show!!

  10. Joey Padron says:

    Good news show is coming back for season 2! The cast are great together and the show is good and funny.

  11. Laurel says:

    I really want to hear more of Gigi singing some edgier rock tunes. Was surprised how good her voice was when I first heard it, hope they really showcase the actress’ talent.
