Despite the initial success of the show, Shahi later criticized the “very gimmicky” second season during an appearance on a podcast, expressing that she did not feel the same level of support from the show’s team compared to the first season. She acknowledged that disagreements and challenges are part of her job as an actor, but she strives to make her performances believable.
Shahi also mentioned that her candid comments about the show may affect her future opportunities with Netflix, but she has recently signed on to star and produce an upcoming ABC legal drama called Judgement, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.
Sex/Life, inspired by B.B. Easton’s book 44 Chapters About 4 Men, premiered on Netflix in 2021. The series delves into a love triangle involving a woman, her husband, and her past, offering a provocative exploration of female identity and desire. Alongside Shahi and Demos, the show also starred Mike Vogel, Margaret Odette, Cleo Anthony, and Darius Homayoun.
