‘Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll’ Gets Renewed for a Second Season


Get ready to rock out more with Denis Leary and John Corbett—FX announced today that Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll is coming back for Season 2 next year. According to FX, the series will return with 10 episodes (two more than Season 1), along with the core cast, which includes Leary (Johnny Rock), Corbett (Flash), Elizabeth Gillies (Gigi), Elaine Hendrix (Ava), Robert Kelly (Bam Bam) and John Ales (Rehab).

“The only thing that could make me happier about this announcement is if David Bowie decided to be a guest star during Season 2,” said Leary, who created the show and also serves as lead, executive producer, director, writer and composer. “In which case, my head would explode. Hopefully on-camera so we get a kick-ass viral video out of it.”

Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll follows a dysfunctional group of rockers led by Johnny Rock (Leary), the main singer of a popular ’90s band called The Heathens, which disbanded after Rock was discovered in bed…with Flash’s wife. But the band (grudgingly) reunites 25 years later when Rock’s daughter, Gigi, decides to form her own back-up band, The Assassins.

The series was basic cable’s most-watched new scripted comedy in 2015 for male age groups of 18-49 and 25-54.
