Here’s everything you need to know about The Sex Lives of College Girls.
What’s it about?
The Sex Lives of College Girls is a sitcom about four college roommates, navigating the parties and predicaments of young adult life at a prestigious New England university.
The official ITVX synopsis for Season 2 explains that “after returning from Thanksgiving break, the girls learn of their new social status as ‘narcs’ - and all the frat parties they are now banned from attending.”
Meanwhile, Kimberly strategizes ways to make up for her lost scholarship with unexpected help from Leighton, Whitney grapples with how to fill her time in the soccer offseason, and Bela attempts to form an all-female comedy magazine.”

Amrit Kaur plays Bela, a student from New Jersey who wants to be a comedian. Prior to starring in Sex Lives of College Girls, Kaur had played supporting roles in The Bold Type, Hudson and Rex, and Star Trek. She’s also in Little Italy (the one with Hayden Christensen and Emma Roberts).
Alyah Chanelle Scott plays Whitney, a star soccer player. Outside of Sex Lives of College Girls, Scott has starred in the Hulu sitcom Reboot (also recommended); she’s also toured with a production of The Book of Mormon, in which she played the female lead.
Pauline Chalamet plays Kimberly, a working-class student. SLOCG is Chalamet’s first major television series, though you might also recognise her from the Pete Davidson film The King of Staten Island. You also perhaps may have heard of her brother, who is also a famous actor.
