FX announced today that Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll has been renewed for a second season!
Created by and starring Denis Leary, the 10-episode first season concluded last week. Season 2 will also be 10 episodes, and set to air in 2016. Returning for the second season are Elizabeth Gillies (Gigi), John Corbett (Flash), Elaine Hendrix (Ava), Robert Kelly (Bam Bam) and John Ales (Rehab).
Leary’s response to the renewal was just soooo rock and roll:
“The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season Two. 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.”
Can someone get Bowie on the phone and make this happen?
In case you didn’t watch the first season, here’s what you need to know:
Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll centers on “Johnny Rock” (Leary), lead singer of a legendary early 90s New York band called The Heathens. Known for living up to their name, the band partied so long and so hard that even Keith Richards thought they needed to slow things down. The Heathens were on the brink of becoming famous for their kickass live shows and the release of their highly anticipated first album. Until they broke up. The same day the album dropped. Because lead guitarist Flash (Corbett) found Johnny in bed with his wife. So the band became legendary for all the wrong reasons – like self-destructing sooner than any group in rock-n-roll history. 25 years later, Johnny’s massively talented daughter Gigi (Gillies) reunites Johnny, Flash, and the rest of their dysfunctional rock and roll family – Bam Bam (Kelly), Rehab (Ales) and Ava (Hendrix) – to be her new backup band, The Assassins. Together they’ve got another shot at rock glory.
I loved the first season of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, and I can’t wait to see where The Assassins go next.
